Peace Connect

Our Projects

Wellness Carnival

The Wellness Carnival is a day of games and activities to engage seniors under the ‘Care Close To Home’ Programme at PeaceConnect for healthy living. We hope to draw isolated seniors out of their homes and cultivate a habit of using the Senior Activity Centre.

The carnival consists of 3 simple physical activity game booths and 4 mind stimulation game booths. Games planned will incorporate the aspect of healthy living through engaging their cognitive skills (e.g. memory games) and motor skills (e.g. bean bag toss). Some games also promote a healthy lifestyle by raising awareness of healthy food options.

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