About Campaign

ends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
Kuan Yee Han has been researching and promoting discussion on ageing with youths through the classes and workshops that he conducts at the university. With the rapid growth in ageing population, there is an increasing need to improve the lives of the elderly in Singapore physically, mentally and socially.

Yee Han is currently championing for the younger population to have deep conversations with our pioneer generations in Singapore and create awareness on how individuals can have an impact to make Singapore a better place for people of all ages. He wants to work with the society to give our senior citizens a sense of worth, confidence and productivity, to have stronger connections with their community and improve their social lives.

Through Relay Majulah, he will be running to inspire people to not think of ageing as a burden but a process of growth that we can all embrace. He challenges all Singaporeans to continue chasing our dreams while having great care for others, especially our senior citizens who have paved our dreams for us.

About the Charity

The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for charities selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society.

Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. In 2012, under the leadership of former President Tony Tan Keng Yam, the Challenge was expanded to go beyond fundraising by including volunteerism and social
entrepreneurship.

In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment. Visit http://www.pc.org.sg/WhoWeSupport to find out about the benefiting organisations supported by President's Challenge this year. 100% of the donations received go towards the charities we support.
