Event Reflections

Project HungerFree was held on 15 July 2017 at the Bukit Timah Campus of the National University of Singapore. It was a humanitarian-themed youth festival, complete with music performances and a documentary photography exhibition, which allowed students and young professionals to deepen their understanding about the challenges in the developing world.

Hunger is one of the most severe global issues — but  if the right actions are taken, it can actually be solved.

This was one of the main reasons why a group of student leaders, the Ambassadors of Anglo-Chinese School (International) Singapore, decided to collaborate with World Vision for our annual charity project.

Our campaign was called ‘ACS International Beats Hunger Together’ and it aimed to help vulnerable children in Tien Lu, Vietnam.

On 19 November 2016, the Raffles Interact club joined other World Vision youth volunteers to engage and educate children and parents at Family Survival Playstreets.

7 individuals, drawn together by a love for music, a desire to use our gifts for a greater cause, and by Karen’s email blast. A quick round of introduction made it clear we were all from vastly different social groups and phases of life. There wasn’t much of an orientation; one hour into the introduction session we were launching into an animated brainstorming session on how to in a very practical way bring music to children in Cambodia. And yet two sessions later I find myself eager to meet these people again, from the very day we set a date to meet. So I asked myself, what was it about them? Before that though, what actually is World Vision Musicatalyst?

Hwa Chong One Day Without Shoes (ODWS) 2015 was an advocacy cum fundraising campaign in Hwa Chong Institution (College), successfully held on May 21. Through Hwa Chong ODWS 2015, we sought to raise awareness about the plight of the poverty-stricken in Africa, consisting of men, women, and children who barely have enough money to buy food, let alone shoes.
