Do you have the passion for the environment and desire an opportunity to join the unsung heroes in your community - foreign workers on a trip to Sentosa?

If yes, join us as a volunteer befriender now!

As a Volunteer Befriender, you will be befriending a group of foreign workers from Tuas View Dormitory who are unable to work due to ongoing employment cases with their previous employers or injury. You will be paired with a worker iand tasked to engage him by bringing them around an amazing race around Sentosa. Part of the program is also to inculcate some environmental literacy so that the workers can learn and hopefully apply these skills in their daily living.

Also, while guiding them through the amazing race, you will get the opportunity to interact with these unsung heroes, and get to also understand and appreciate their contribution. Many of them do share the same passion for sports and food and it is your chance to get together in a fun day of activities and games. 

The commitment required as a Volunteer Befriender would be the Orientation & Training session and the Actual Event session.

The Red Box
