Fei Yue Community Services

Our Projects

Project DIY

Project DIY aims to equip senior citizens living around Chua Chu Kang with the skills to use basic fixing tools and allow them to apply these skills in small upcycling and DIY projects. This would be done in the form of biweekly workshops and we hope that it would help the senior citizens to be more able to conduct simple household fixes on their own. In addition, we also aim to encourage the senior citizens to be actively involved in the design of their upcycling and DIY projects, thus giving  them a sense of ownership of what they make.

Con-currently, our team will also collate household maintenance issues from senior citizens staying around Fei Yue Centres.  Thereafter, we will collaborate with South West Community Development Council and ITE Safe Home to resolves these issues during their home maintenance and fixing sessions.

This project is part of Youth Corps Singapore’s Leaders Programme.

Project Silver Nation

Project Silver Nation aims to offer our elderly beneficiaries in Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang a platform to stay mentally active through a series of recreational activities such as Origami and Home Gardening, held weekly over 6 sessions.

After obtaining the skills and concepts covered in our activities, they will then be able to replicate them and progress further in their free time, augmenting the cognitive benefits beyond our project.

This project will run on a rotating EXCO system, so as to bring in fresh faces and reach out to even more people in the community on a long-term basis.
