World Vision is calling all youths who desire to be change agents in making poverty history!

We work with schools, organisations and youths to raise global leaders who are aware of issues related to poverty and humanitarianism worldwide, and want to be empowered to make a difference in the world.

If you believe that your generation can bring about change, we invite you to join us in our fight against poverty and injustice. For a start, you can follow our youth social media accounts on Instagram and Facebook!

For more information on any of our activities or events, please email youth@worldvision.org.sg.

30 Hour Famine Camp
FR1A5045

For more than 30 years in Singapore, youth aged 14 to 18 go without food for 30 hours, as a mark of solidarity against global issues of poverty, hunger and injustice. During the 30 Hour Famine Camp, which draws an average of 1,000 youth yearly, real life simulation activities shed light on global food security issues, and help develop critical thinking and global citizenry. The camp aims to educate and empower the future generation to take action for children in need worldwide.

If you are interested to organise your own DIY Famine Camp in your school, church, or among your families and friends, we would like to speak with you! We’ll walk alongside you all the way and can also provide you with the right support and resources.

Child Sponsorship & World Buddies Programme
World-Bubbies-Logo_landscape

Students who find it hard to afford $45 a month to sponsor a child can now do so by combinining resources with friends! The World Buddies Programme is an affordable micro child sponsorship programme specially for students in Secondary and Tertiary institutions. It allows youth to crowdfund and sponsor needy children as a class/group. Children from poor communities will now have big brothers and sisters to write to them and keep abreast of the exciting transformation taking place in their communities.

The annual cost of sponsorship is $540. Shared amongst a class of 30 for instance, life changing transformation for a child amounts to $18 per student each year or about just 5₵ a day! Contributions can be made online or by cash in person.

Love is action! Be an inspiration to these children by making a difference together with your friends.

To know more about this programme or how you can effect change, please contact Ms Kwan Hui Xian at huixian.kwan@worldvision.org.sg or 6922 0115.
