We celebrate the contributions of our SIVs in improving lives and building international friendships for Singapore. Today, our SIVs continue to empower communities in 35 projects across Asia - improving the quality of healthcare, environmental and education services through skills training and provision of direct services.
The award honours the more than 3,500 SIVs, whose hard work, dedication and passion have made a difference and uplifted lives in communities across 17 countries over the past two decades. Among them pictured here, Yusof Yakob (third from left), A/Prof Anette Jacobsen (extreme right) and Dr R Akhileswaran (fourth from right).
Whether as specialist or generalist volunteers, they are our agents of change who share their knowledge, skills, and resources to uplift lives.
