About Campaign

Music can impact a person tremendously as in the case of Maria, a pseudonym, who lost her father when she was in Primary 5. Though this tragedy affected her greatly, being an introvert, she found solace in others and often went down the wrong path. Through the Song writing for Hope Programme by The Esplanade, she found an outlet to express and share her feelings. Said her youth guidance officer, "For her to share her story through song is a milestone and a positive step for her to finally recognise her loss."

This year, President's Challenge is raising funds for 12 organisations who provide support for youths who are facing challenges in their lives. Through the support given, we hope to help them live a caring and productive life and become high self-esteemed individuals. The organisations include

- The Esplanade
- FaithActs
- Association of Women for Action and Research
- Boys' Town Singapore
- CampusImpact
- Focus on the Family Singapore Ltd
- HCSA Community Services
- Morning Star Community Services
- New Life Community Services
- NuLife Care & Counselling Services
- REACH Community Services Society
- Wrestling Federation of Singapore

Do your part by donating to these causes through President's Challenge. Every dollar counts. 100% of the donations go towards the beneficiaries.

About the Charity

The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for beneficiaries 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.

Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
