Twenty-five-year Abdul (not his real name) got placed into Pertapis Halfway House to complete his drug abuse rehabilitation programme. Through its social enterprise, DigiArt, he was able to harness his creative skills to design banners and print logos for major events and projects. More good news arrived when he got sponsored for a design course and a job after his discharge.

This year, President's Challenge is raising funds for five organisations who provide support to ex-offenders through rehabilitative programmes to faciliate their reintegration back to the community and their family. Your donations to President Challenge 2017 makes it possible for Abdul and others like him to realise their aspirations.

Other PC 2017 supported beneficiaries providing rehabilitation assistance include:
- Green Haven - Halfway House
- HEB-Ashram Halfway House
- Pertapis Halfway House
- Singapore After Care Association
- Singapore Anti-Narcotics Association

This year, President's Challenge supports 52 beneficiaries supporting a wide range of sectors including children, youth and families, healthcare, disability services, eldercare and rehabilitation services. Every dollar counts.

100% of the donations go towards the beneficiaries.
