Climbathon 2019 is a trek to Nepal's Annapurna Base Camp. Fronted by youths, it involves a team of 51 trekkers - all with the same goal of giving a dream to every needy student to help prepare for school next year!

Climbathon is an initiative to raise funds for the Education Trust Fund (ETF). The ETF helps to uplift the education of more than 10,000 students from low-income families annually.

Your generous support to the ETF better the lives of students in our community by helping to lighten their financial worries so they can focus on doing well in their studies, something every child deserves.

Will you join this effort to raise funds for our children?

About the Charity

Yayasan MENDAKI (Council for the Development of Singapore Malay/Muslim Community) is a pioneer Self-Help Group formed in 1982 dedicated to empower the community through excellence in education, in the context of a multi-racial and multi-religious Singapore. In 2002, MENDAKI streamlined its focus along four key areas of Education, Youth, Family and Employability.

MENDAKI helps to administer the Education Trust Fund, which is a community-driven fund that supports the education needs of children from disadvantaged Malay/Muslim families to ensure that every child gets the resources to succeed in school.

ETF subsidies spanned from Primary 1 to Secondary 5 students to tertiary students. To further support students in their educational pursuit, students who received ETF subsidies are offered academic support in a form of free tuition under the MENDAKI Tuition Scheme (MTS) or the Collaborative Tuition Programme (CTP). In 2017, ETF provides additional assistance to Malay Muslim students enrolled in Big Hearts Student Care Centre to defray the cost of monthly fee and programme fees. In 2019, more corporate donors, like Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce Foundation, SM Jaleel Foundation, Global Radiance Group and Mr Siddiqui, came on board to provide bursaries and scholarships.

With your help, we hope to raise $2 million yearly for this cause.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
