In Singapore, Self-Help Groups (SHGs) include the Chinese Development Assistance Council (CDAC), the Eurasian Association, Sinda, and Yayasan Mendaki.
SHGs recently presented awards to 517 students at the 15th Joint Tuition Awards Ceremony. The awards recognised the students’ scholastic achievements at national examinations in Singapore.
Some of the awardees were beneficiaries of the SHGs’ Collaborative Tuition Programme, which gives students from low income families access to affordable tuition.
A total of $66,050 in book vouchers were presented by the guest of honour, Mr Ng Chee Meng, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office and Secretary-General of the National Trades Union Congress.
Mr Ng Chee Meng praised the work done by the SHGs.
