Commemorating Singapore's Bicentennial Year
As Singapore commemorates the last 200 years of its history, it gives us good reason to pause, and reflect on its journey of transformation. We have so much to be grateful for in this jewel of a city-state.
Today, we are economically vibrant, we have a colourful cultural life, and a distinct national identity forged by strong bonds between all manner of communities that have been drawn to this little island.
However, just as we commemorate Singapore’s accomplishments, we also remember the vulnerable and marginalised; those who may be struggling or trailing behind because of circumstance or the lack of family or community support.
We believe we have to all move ahead, together. Helping entire communities at risk requires a collective effort, which is why we would like to work alongside government agencies and stakeholders.
Tan Chuan-Jin’s photographs, provides us a wonderful opportunity and platform to do just that. With his support, and your donations, we hope to fund programmes to reach families and individuals in need, and transform more lives for the better.
We believe, we are stronger when we work as one.
Hope Initiative Alliance
Hope Initiative Alliance is a collective of multiple charities and non-profit organisations around the world that are fully invested in effectively helping those in need, namely, the poor, deprived, and marginalised. By pooling our expertise and network, we are better placed to bring Hope to these people.
We are partnering with multiple charities, each specialising in meeting the needs of a specific segment of the community. By working alongside them, we are able to increase the scope of our reach to a level we would not have reached on our own.
One of the many ways we support these outreaches is through fundraising. Proceeds from original products that are donated will go towards helping the various communities. We also solicit support from different organisations that too share our desire to support people in need.
