Youth and Schools

On 24 May 2024, World Vision Singapore hosted the One Day Without Shoes workshop for primary and secondary students in Singapore Chinese Girls’ School (SCGS).Students got to make their own shoes with cardboard and tape, and set off on their walk around campus literally in the shoes of children who live in vulnerable places. 

More than 60 youths from various secondary schools, pre-tertiary institutions and universities walked in the shoes of children living in conflict and climate crises at the 30 Hour Famine 2024: Hunger Trials on 18 and 19 May 2024. Against the backdrop of Fort Canning, a major location in Singapore's conflict history, participants joined the signature 30-hour fast from food while completing team-based challenges that enabled them to be more informed and empathetic advocates for vulnerable children.
