About Campaignends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
I am currently a PE Educator who motivates children to move, play and exercise well. Growing up as a young person was not the easiest for me. I tried very hard to make sense of family and studies. When my family went through difficult times, I totally gave up on my studies during secondary school days. In an instance, all my dreams to be a lawyer went down the drain. While overcoming the challenges in my life, I realised that living a purposeful life was more important than one that is defined by wealth and achievements. I learnt to give unto others while believing that God would take care of me. I persevered and eventually attained my degree in 2016. I eventually became a teacher who would find myself to always respect every path that is taken, even if they look longer.
I am honoured and privileged to be part of Relay Majulah to galvanize fellow citizens to give forward to empower every child and youth to live meaningful and progressive lives. So, come be part of this great initiative to shower a little more love and kindness.
About the Charity
The President's Challenge started in 2000 and represents a coming together of people from all walks of life, under the President's patronage, to help those who are less fortunate. It is the President's call to all Singaporeans to do their part to build a more caring and cohesive society.
While fundraising continues to be at the heart of President's Challenge, the campaign has gone beyond the giving of money to the giving of time, skills and talent for the less fortunate. President now seeks to play a bigger role in nurturing stronger communities by expanding support for programmes beyond the social service sector and to encourage the young and elderly population to be involved in community work.
Under the leadership of President Halimah Yacob, President's Challenge is looking into more customised and upstream support to help the most vulnerable change their circumstances through skills upgrading, capacity building and empowerment.
