Read for Books 2020
We took part in the National Library Board (NLB)'s charity book drive to help raise awareness of reading and to share the gift of reading with the less privileged. From 11 to 26 July 2020, for every 10 people who read for 15 minutes, one book was donated to selected beneficiaries. Our staff sent in photos of themselves (even their families and pets!) in the act of reading to help raise awareness and to add to the tally of "people who read". We received a letter of appreciation from the Chief Executive of NLB on 31 October 2020 commending that our participation and contributions help to raise 1,000 books for that year’s beneficiary, WondeRead. The books were delivered in [email protected] customized boxes to 838 children from 16 social service agencies.

Cycling Without Age
Cycling Without Age is a movement started in 2012 by Ole Kassow. Ole wanted to help the elderly get back on their bicycles, but he had to find a solution to their limited mobility. The answer was a trishaw and he started offering free bike rides to the local nursing home residents. In Singapore, CWA is registered as a CLG and run single-handedly by a Dutch lady and a handful of volunteers.
SOS Children's Villages International
SOS Children's Villages International comprises 118 national SOS Children's Villages associations. As members of the federation, each SOS Children's Villages association is committed to applying the federation's statutes, standards for quality child care, and stringent financial and administrative practices.
We raised funds for SOS Ho Chi Minh and Phuket in 2016 and 2017 through various fun events and fundraising initiatives. We also visited the SOS villages, bringing donated daily necessities and schoolroom essentials.
Our staff and families visited SOS Hanoi in 2018 bearing our own handmade gifts, sponsored items and donations. It was a beautifully meaningful way to interact with the SOS beneficiaries and an enriching experience for our people.
