Think Giving, Not Retail Therapy

I identify with the mission of Image Mission being a woman and knowing how hard it is to juggle between work and family. I cannot imagine how disadvantaged women feel everyday when they are struggling to get a job. Some do not even have money to take the bus to go for an interview and no proper working clothes to wear. So instead of throwing old office work wear away, please give them to someone who needs them and donate to help them get a better life.
Image Mission Ltd is the first charity of its kind in Singapore, to promote economic independence for the disadvantaged by providing free image coaching and professional attire for job interviews and work. We are the official licensee of Dress for Success Singapore, that supports disadvantaged women looking for employment. Our compelling reasons to work with women are: An estimated 188,000 Singapore women may be living in poverty (in households with $2000 per month); 29,400 Singapore women are unemployed; Of these, 8,820 may be living in poverty the bottom 30%).
We are an independent registered charity and are self-funding and run by volunteers. Clients are referred by VWOs, charities and non-profit organisations. All our services and clothing are provided free-of-charge to the women-in-need. Your donations will go towards running this program. Help us to help disadvantaged women in Singapore build a future for themselves and their families.
