Her Passion: Helping children and families out of intergenerational poverty.
Her Belief: Working with disadvantaged communities for the past 25 years has brought her to believe in strength-based community development that focuses on strengths rather than deficits of impoverished communities.
Her Dream: She hopes to see Singapore as a society where communities are like homes, where helping a neighbour or stranger is as natural as helping a family member. She believes that it takes many helping hands to build a caring and inclusive society that treasures social well-being as much as economic well-being.
Bee Leng is currently the Executive Director of South Central Community FSC, serves on the Management Committee of the Healthy Start Child Development Centre and volunteers with Caritas Singapore and the MSF Review Board.
