Description of Organization

“We believe women and men have equal roles to play in the home, at the workplace, within the community, and in leadership. Together with our member organisations, we aim to reduce and ultimately eliminate these inequalities.

Our vision and our mission: Equal Space. Equal Voice. Equal Worth.

In the last two years, we provided legal marital and child support and counselling services to 1,981 women. Our crisis shelter housed 45 women and children who were victims of violence, with clean clothes, food and security.

To inspire girls and women to achieve their dreams, learning resources were provided for 6,050 students across Singapore.

We empowered women to take on leadership through mentorship programmes, career advancement talks and workshops.”


Intended use of funds through the YFC 2023 programme

Operational needs, including employee wages and building expenses, to sustain and house our programmes and initiatives. Food and care products for our beneficiaries, etc.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

We will invite them for orientation within our centre, where they can view our past exhibitions, understand the living conditions of the women under our care, and internalise the importance of gender equality.
