Our distinguished Guest-of-Honour will be Her Excellency, President Halimah Yacob. She is an active champion for senior volunteerism and it is indeed a morale booster for us to have her as the Guest-of-Honour. Her support will lead to more seniors who will become encouraged and motivated to step forth as active volunteers.
As befits the significance of our 20th Anniversary, our target is to raise a total of at least $1,000,000 in support of RSVP's mission to provide opportunities for seniors to serve the community with their talent and experience through purpose-driven volunteerism. This is by far our most ambitious fundraising target.
All proceeds will go towards the growth of RSVP's programmes in number, breadth and depth. Our programmes already benefit the mentally disadvantaged, at-risk children from low income families, socially isolated seniors and elderly discharged patients from our public hospitals. Our Volunteer Learning Centre has also done pioneering work in volunteering skills and helped to bridge the IT divide for seniors.
