About Campaignends 13 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM
We will do this by bringing to our schoolchildren the amazing stories of the Awesome Women of Singapore - the pioneering women who broke through the boundaries and shattered glass ceilings.
These women helped to shape Singapore. Their stories deserve to be told. Their stories will inspire young Singaporeans to challenge whatever limits they may face, to dare to dream, and to make these dreams come true.
Project Awesome is built around 'Awesome Women of Singapore', a children's book that will be launched in March 2021 at the next Singapore Women's Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The stories in the book are the stories of the 160 women in the Hall of Fame.
With your support for Project Awesome, we will be able to:
- Donate 5 copies of 'Awesome Women of Singapore' to every school and children's home
- Organise exhibitions, talks and other events where schoolchildren can learn more about and interact with the amazing women and other role models
- Produce lesson plans and interactive tools to help teachers use the stories to instil in students important core values and personal skills.
