While we may live in one version of reality where we can have our basic needs met,
many children in vulnerable​ contexts do not live in this same reality.

What is reality like for them?

Find out at the first-ever hybrid edition of the 30 Hour Famine.


For these children,
every crisis is a hunger crisis.

Embark on experiential virtual missions in the multiverse and be immersed in the day-to-day sights, sounds, and struggles of children surviving in the most hard-to-reach and dangerous places – all while completing our classic 30-hour fast from food.

Frequently Asked Questions

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian and development organisation dedicated to addressing the needs of vulnerable children and families worldwide, regardless of their ethnicity, religion, gender, or nationality. Through a combination of relief, development, and advocacy programmes being implemented in about 100 countries around the world, World Vision works in partnership with disadvantaged communities to tackle the root causes of poverty and injustice, thereby enabling them to reach their full potential. We also work in conjunction with the affiliated programmes and specialised agencies of the United Nations, including the World Food Programme, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and UNICEF, on issues that have an impact on the safety, health, and developmental potential of children. Our programmes address a range of essential needs that have a critical bearing on the livelihoods of poor families and the well-being of children. 


If you’re aged 17-35, and able to attend the programme in full, do sign up here and join us for YFCC!  

YFCC will return to being an in-person conference this year! For participants based overseas, an option to join us virtually will be provided. 

All registration fees are non-refundable, but you do have the option of identifying another person who can attend the conference in your place.  

All participants who are attending YFCC 2022 in-person at Republic Polytechnic must be fully vaccinated.

Youth Expedition Programme Goes Online (or YEP-GO) is a virtual initiative that was started by Youth Corps Singapore during the pandemic. It allows youth in Singapore to volunteer with overseas communities remotely through online Service-Learning projects without the need for travel. More information on YEP-GO can be found here.

After being introduced at YFCC to the challenges that have emerged in different countries, eligible participants will have a chance to work in teams to develop and implement a 20-hour programme of online educational sessions (a requirement of the YEP-GO initiative), or 10 days of in-person Service-Learning activities (for a YEP trip), for adolescents and youth whom World Vision serves in ASEAN countries such as Cambodia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.   

No. YEP/ YEP-GO projects with World Vision will only be undertaken by YFCC participants in Singapore who have been recruited by partner schools to form project teams before the conference.  

Yes! Whether you’re embarking on a YEP trip or a YEP-GO project with World Vision, the issues and real-life case studies covered at YFCC will be relevant to your team as you prepare for your project. 

Yes! You can attend YFCC as a stand-alone educational event to learn more about peacebuilding, conflict sensitivity, and how children and youth can be agents of reconciliation. Equipped with this knowledge, you could even seek out your own service and advocacy opportunities independently after the conference.  

The adolescents and youth whom YEP and YEP-GO teams will be working with live in ASEAN countries such as Cambodia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. They have been identified by World Vision's field workers as individuals who come from vulnerable backgrounds. All of them are part of World Vision's community development programmes, which focus on alleviating poverty and improving specific aspects of their well-being in a sustainable manner, including (and not limited to) educational outcomes, economic livelihoods, and ensuring that they live safe from abuse. More information on how World Vision’s community development programmes are carried out can be found here.

Each YEP-GO team will be matched to a specific group of adolescents or youth for the full duration of the project and will work jointly with World Vision and the community participants themselves on shaping the schedule of their sessions so as to complete their 20-hour project by the end of June 2023.  

If you are part of a team going on a YEP trip with World Vision, you will spend up to two weeks implementing your Service-Learning project in a community whom World Vision serves in ASEAN. Your project activities and trip itinerary will be planned in consultation with World Vision and the community members whom you will be working with. 

During the period of project development, your team will be scheduled for up to two check-in meetings with World Vision's field workers. You will need to come prepared to present your proposed plans for your project so that you can receive targeted feedback for refining them during these meetings.   

A representative from World Vision Singapore will facilitate the check-in meetings, and will be contactable during the project implementation phase to provide feedback on the online educational sessions that you will be running and to help with coordinating logistical arrangements for your projects (such as the stationery or equipment that community participants will need).
