Starting off with a Hope for Children talk in July 2016, Women of Vision embarked on a project aimed to educate the public about equipping children in disadvantaged communities. With carefully selected speakers, Mr Tan Khye Suan (Executive Director of MCYC Community Services), Ms Lynna Chandra (Founder of Rachel House) and Ms Laura Hukom (Advocacy Director, Child Protection from World Vision Indonesia), the dialogue session gave audience an insight into how they can give children in disadvantaged communities the opportunity to realise their potential and how they can help vulnerable children find a safe environment – with the care and protection they deserve.

Thank you for coming down to our forum on human trafficking, “Will You Follow Me?”

On 16 January 2016, we had the opportunity to hear firsthand from those on the frontlines of the battle against human trafficking. Annie Dieselberg, founder and CEO of NightLight, Sylvia Lee, founder and director of EmancipAsia, and Christopher de Souza, Singapore MP responsible for the passing of the Prevention of Human Trafficking Act, came together for a thought-provoking and enlightening forum on how each of us has a part to play in putting an end to modern-day slavery.

SG50 Art Exhibition: Art & Diversity

Art & Diversity, which ran from 13-18 June 2015, featured the creative and visual interpretations of a diverse group of artists, a showcase of talents ranging from educator and social artist Chi Pin Lay to budding artists of all stripes, and even the raw potential of the visually impaired from Dialogue in the Dark. Net proceeds from the auction of paintings were channeled to World Vision’s Nepal Earthquake Disaster Fund, to help needy children and families rebuild a better HOME “家”.

In conjunction with Art & Diversity, the Women of Vision also organized A Brush with Hope, a series of calligraphy workshops led by educator, social artist and Woman of Vision Chi Pin Lay. This brought together both young and old for a fun and educational evening of calligraphy for a cause.

Hope for Children

On 11 April 2015, the Women of Vision gathered at the YWCA, Fort Canning Lodge, for an afternoon of inspiration and insights on the work for street children in Cambodia. Over 180 people attended the high tea event where we heard from Ms Aimyleen Gabriel, Program Manager for Child Protection at World Vision Cambodia, as well as Mr Pengty, President of the Association of Cambodians in Singapore. The event also featured exciting Cambodian cultural dances, games and musical numbers.

Vision Trip to CambodiaIn November 2014, the Women of Vision traveled to Cambodia, where they witnessed up close the devastating effects of poverty. They visited World Vision’s project area in Kirivong as well as the Street Children Transformation Project in Phnom Penh. This trip inspired the women to do their part to bring about real and lasting change for needy children.
