“Nobody Gets Left Behind”. As our motto, Project Keep In Touch wants to build an inclusive society where every individual member has a heart for each other. With our three key tenets of environmentalism, professionalism and sustainability, we sought to breathe new life into old and unwanted things as we sought to shift the community’s mind-set towards the underprivileged in Singapore—especially the financially underprivileged and people with intellectual disabilities.
Always remember the objective you have in mind, and the fire that burnt brightly within you at the start of your project. Keep the fire blazing, and use it to bring everyone forward together.
