Pledge For A Better World

Inaugural Bazaar for Good



Description

Join us as we pledge for a better world at our inaugural Bazaar for Good (B4G) on 6 and 7 April 2019.

We will showcase the invaluable positive change that happens when we bring Singaporeans and world communities together to do good. So far, since the establishment of the SIF in 1991, we have made a difference to 15 million lives and counting. 

Through our programmes in - Education, Healthcare, Arts and Culture, Business & Livelihood and the Environment  - we have also made many good friends and built greater understanding at the people-to-people level.

B4G also marks the 10th anniversary of our signature Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) programme and will showcase the innovative ideas by our alumni social enterprises – both local and international. 


Programme

We are planning an exciting line-up of booths, games and activities. Get ready to also celebrate new friendships and reconnect with old buddies. Bring along your family and friends! 

Activities include:

  • Support local and international social enterprises selling food, drinks, wellness and lifestyle products
  • Learn about the countries the SIF does work in over coffee at the Friendship Café
  • Sign up to volunteer with SIF’s signature Water for Life and Words on Wheels programmes
  • Co-create art installations to pledge for a better world.
