Youth and Schools

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.

From 15-17 May 2023, Hwa Chong Humanities and Current Affairs Society hosted Hwa Chong One Day Without Shoes. This event aimed to raise awareness for marginalised and disadvantaged communities living amidst poverty and water shortage globally, especially amongst the students who may have been relatively more sheltered from these issues and concerns.

YEP Project Boribo II is a Singapore Management University (SMU) endorsed project held in collaboration with World Vision Singapore. In May 2023, 15 SMU students from diverse backgrounds travelled to Cambodia with one common goal — to empower youths.
