The Singapore International Foundation (SIF) is a not-for-profit organisation established on
1 August 1991.
Our aim is to strengthen mutual understanding, ties and trust between global communities. All our programmes seek to bring Singaporeans and our friends from overseas communities together, to connect and collaborate for positive change.
We believe that when people from different parts of the world work together, they gain insights that bridge cultural divides and the sharing of ideas, skills and experiences inspires actions and enables collaborations for good. We do this because we believe we all can, and should, do our part to build a better world – one we envision as peaceful, inclusive and offers opportunities for all.
Making friends for a better world.
Through shared ideas, skills, and experiences, we uplift lives and create greater understanding between Singaporeans and world communities.
