Description of Organization
AWWA is a social service organisation, serving over 6,000 of the disadvantaged across life stages. Services include early intervention for preschoolers, education and disability support for children with special needs, assistance to low income families, caregivers, and health and social assistance for vulnerable seniors.

Today, our social workers, therapists, teachers, program staff and management continue to identify needs on the ground. Through this, AWWA continues to evolve, innovate and fill gaps in the community, venturing into new areas where there is a need. For this and ongoing programmes, we work with community partners, government agencies, volunteers, and donors who have rendered strong support to further AWWA’s cause to empower the disadvantaged and maximise their potential.

Mission: To empower the disadvantaged to maximise their potential to lead dignified and independent lives.
Aspiration: To be recognised as a model social service provider in Singapore and the region.
Aim: To continually pioneer and develop comprehensive range of services from infancy to old age to fulfill our mission and aspiration.


Intended use of funds through the YFC 2019 programme
Donations to AWWA support life-changing programmes that empower and maximise the potential of our communities to lead dignified and independent lives.

Learning to walk. Making daily trips to school. Sharing our thoughts. Remembering our loved ones. These are things that sound easy for most of us but for our clients here at AWWA, the joy of accomplishing these simple things is often an everyday miracle. Your donation will help sustain the AWWA programmes and services for over 6,000 AWWA clients.

This includes equipment, supplies and materials, manpower, infrastructure and new programmes among many others. AWWA allocates donations to the clients, services and programmes which need the funding the most.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

AWWA would like to invite the YFC teams participating to volunteer with one of our services, to get to know AWWA and our clients better. AWWA will assist in orientating the teams as to the mission and aim of the organisation, so as to align our goals with that of the teams’.

Close interaction is necessary to ensure that the teams are adequately informed and guided during this journey.
Logistical and administrative assistance will also be rendered whenever necessary, to assist in any queries pertaining to the teams’ support towards AWWA.
