SINDA is heartened with the strong community support unstintingly given by partnerships with community grassroots, religious and ethnic groups, which help us reach out to and connect effectively with individuals.
This year Project Give aims to create a greater engagement with the community focusing on three key areas, preschool education, smart nation and health. Project Give 2017 campaign desires to increase the awareness of SINDA’s programmes and services for the community by conducting interactive activities involving various community partners and stakeholders participation.
Our strong academic focus at SINDA has not changed over the years. We believe in the infinite potential of every child, and try to ensure that this potential is not hindered by family, social or economic circumstances. This is the main thrust of Project Give fundraising.
The year before, in 2016, SINDA’s annual expenditure of $10 million, went towards educational programmes. We engaged 6,691 students through these programmes, and also distributed school kits, bursaries, subsidies and scholarships.
Its not just the students who benefit, but families, too. In 2016, 1,003 festive gift packs were distributed to low-income families to help celebrate Deepavali, Hari Raya and Christmas collectively.
We wouldn’t have the success of Project Give without your support. Thank you, all!
The Singapore Indian Development Association (SINDA) is a Self-Help Group, set up in August 1991 to address educational and socio-economic issues facing the Indian community in Singapore.
SINDA actively strives to build a well-educated and confident community of Indians that stands together with the other communities in contributing to the progress of multi-racial Singapore. In the course of fulfilling its objectives, SINDA works closely with many volunteers, schools and grassroots organisations. In the process, SINDA has steadily evolved into a credible organisation that serves as a pillar of the Singapore Indian community.
Today, SINDA runs a wide array of programmes that not only effectively serves to uplift the educational performance of Indian students, but also promotes family harmony and uplifts the social status of ethnic Indians.
Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic and Social Policies, is Chairman of SINDA’s Board of Trustees. Ms Indranee Rajah, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Finance & Ministry of Law, is President of the Executive Committee.
