We believe lives are changed when individuals and organisations come together to creatively shape new realities and find meaningful, inventive solutions to build a better world.

Together with our partners, donors and volunteers, we help communities in a dozen countries to receive education, escape poverty, get access to healthcare and ultimately care for themselves and others.

We also tell stories of people changing lives, and stories of the people whose lives have been changed.

And we help bridge Singaporeans and world communities by engaging change leaders, connecting with the international community and staging cultural showcases to nurture friendships, share perspectives and foster respect.

We’re keen for those who share our vision to make friends for a better world, to join us.
