Citizen Ambassadors

Each of us represents our culture and our country in different ways.

Some of us share our culture through the arts; some through running businesses with a social mission.

In all of these instances, we play the role of Citizen Ambassadors for Singapore, connecting and collaborating with world communities to effect positive change.

A Citizen Ambassador 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 between countries in order to build a better, more peaceful and inclusive world. 

All Citizen Ambassadors shall agree to the SIF Global Citizens Charter, which sets out the principles, values and behaviours expected of them, based on the foundation’s mission and core values.

Get in touch with us today to find out how you can be involved!


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,
SIF Chairman




Our work with overseas and Singaporean communities are powered by individual and corporate donors who share the same goal of effecting positive change globally. Come onboard as a project donor today and join us in enabling collaborations for good.
