Since 2000, it has reached out to over 600,000 families via workshops and programmes. Its Deputy Group Head, Engagement and Programmes, Kevin Goh, draws inspiration for his work from an important woman in his life – his wife. She inspires him constantly by the way she lives out her passion to make a difference, her pursuit for solutions, and by rallying her community to do their part.
If you are looking to contribute as a corporate partner, Kevin’s advice is to start small. “Start with your interests and work with others, collaborating to make a giant impact”.
