Youth and Schools

More than 150 youth in Singapore marked the start of their mid-year school holidays by fasting from food for 30 hours and completing educational experiential challenges that took them into the multiverse of vulnerable children bearing the brunt of global crises – conflict, climate change, and COVID-19 – at the first ever hybrid edition of 30 Hour Famine, which was held by World Vision Singapore from 27 to 29 May 2022.  

On 2nd and 3rd November 2021, World Vision Singapore conducted a Pad Making Workshop at Singapore Chinese Girls’ School (Secondary) (SCGS), to educate the Secondary 2 girls about what girls in less fortunate circumstances are going through, and teach the students how to sew reusable pads that will be sent to the girls in Nepal.

On 20-22 December 2021, 143 youths came together for the sixth edition of our annual Youth For Change Conference (YFCC). The theme of the conference this year was Aftershocks, and focused on the relatively less well-known, but no less severe, secondary impacts of COVID-19 on vulnerable children and youth around the world.
