Singapore's 21st Century 'School of Life' in a nature-inspired campus to forge A Beautiful Connection with the Earth & Community by Farming Your Heart

About Us

Ground-Up Initiative (GUI) is a non-profit organisation that nurtures our people by giving them space to discover their sense of purpose, empowering them to contribute effectively towards the stewardship of our world. Our flagship programme, Balik Kampung, has attracted thousands of volunteers from all walks of life and of various nationalities.

Currently located in Yishun, north on the island city-state of Singapore, many have come to the Kampung Kampus to experience for themselves GUI's approach in sustainable living and a hands-on culture. Since end 2014, we have embarked to build the Kampung Kampus, a low-carbon footprint campus and pioneering a new way of learning, strengthening communities and nurturing more grounded leaders based on our Thinker, Warrior, Farmer philosophy.
