Project JOY is an annual Ramadan project since 2002, providing the staff of Yayasan MENDAKI an opportunity to contribute to the disadvantaged in the Malay/Muslim community. It has since evolved and the project managed to garner the support of many volunteers young and old, Malay/Muslim Members of Parliament, Corporate organisations and informal groups

We aim to give out kids sahur pack (pre-dawn meal) and grocery vouchers to aid 400 families with school-going children this Ramadan. Hence, through this fundraising, we hope to garner the support of the community to be part of this initiative and help these families in the time of hardship and bring great JOY to them.

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.
