Youth

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.

Before my trip to Phnom Penh, I remember feeling a pervasive sense of cynicism and weariness about the world. 2016 was a trying year, especially with it being characterised by all the chaos and political turmoil that many around the world had to endure. The disillusionment was omnipresent, and as much as I hate to admit, it seemed as if our humanity was on the edge of destruction.
