The work of the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) is not possible without the support of many Singaporeans who generously give of their time and talent. Their collective efforts bring us closer to becoming a nation of responsible global citizens.
Singaporeans play the role of Citizen Ambassadors (CA) when they volunteer to work alongside their overseas counterparts to shape new realities, while fostering greater intercultural understanding.
A CA is a friend of the world—someone who recognises that Singapore sits within the global community and that there is a need for greater understanding and collaboration between countries in order to build a better, more peaceful and inclusive world.
As key enablers of our work, all our CA abide by the SIF Global Citizens Charter, which sets out the principles, values and behaviours expected of them, based on the SIF’s mission and core values.
“Every Singaporean is an ambassador of Singapore. We need the efforts of all to achieve our goal of becoming a nation of responsible global citizens. I think this is what the next stage of Singapore’s development should be focused on.”
Ambassador Ong Keng Yong
