Youth and Schools

On 9 - 24 July, a team of 14 students from Singapore Management University embarked on a meaningful service learning journey to Son Tra, Vietnam, with the aim of imparting essential soft skills to the youth. Project White Dove was a transformative experience for them, leaving an indelible mark on their hearts and reinforcing the power of education and community engagement.

Interning at World Vision and being exposed to first-hand stories from the field really reinforced how blessed I am to live in the safety and security of Singapore. Reading the testimonies of victims of disasters who have lost all their family members or children who are fighting against exploitation sometimes moved me to tears. While I initially felt overwhelmed and helpless, I remind myself that I can play a part in supporting these vulnerable individuals through World Vision's work.

From 29 to 30 May 2023, over 100 youths and young adults embarked on an exciting journey across Lazarus and Sentosa Islands at World Vision Singapore’s annual 30 Hour Famine Camp. This year, the 30 Hour Famine finally returned as an in-person day camp, and saw participants join in the signature 30 hour fast from food while completing team-based station activities aimed at increasing awareness and empathy of the struggles that children in vulnerable places face.
