About Campaign

ends 17 Aug 2016, 11:59 PM
We believe in the "Many Helping Hands" approach to provide community care for the elderly. Singapore has nearly 405,000 people aged 65 years & above, a population that is expected to increase threefold to 900,000 by 2030. As the nation faces an unprecedented ageing population, we encourage more seniors to volunteer their time to uplift others.

Ms Lily Kow, 66, is a volunteer at the Women's Initiative for Ageing Successfully (WINGS). She has been serving as a lead volunteer coordinator, trainer for the balloon sculpting class and "ChairXercise" Coach. Lily is passionate about reaching out to more women to encourage women to live active lives and stay engaged in the society even as they age.

The Fund aims to encourage more seniors like Lily to share their time, expertise and energy to social causes. Your donations will go to programmes that promote senior volunteerism including:

- Recruitment and retention
- Training
- Recognition

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
