Notable Programmes supported by POSB PAssion Kids Fund


Walk for Wishes

The People’s Association Youth Movement (PAYM) and the Youth Executive Committees (YECs) organised Walk for Wishes on 5 March 2017 to fulfil wishes of 1,000 less privileged children, ranging from new school shoes and bags to household groceries. 1,000 youths were also involved in this symbolic walk to do their part towards this meaningful cause.

Mr Teo Chee Hean, Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security, flagged off the participants and joined beneficiaries from low-income families for a fun-filled day at the zoo.

In partnership with the POSB PAssion Kids Fund, each walk completed by a youth will be matched by corporate donations that go towards fulfilling wishes of the children.


North West – POSB SavingStars Programme

This programme was jointly organised by North West CDC, POSB, Care Corner and The NUS Centre for Social Development (Asia), set to match savings and provide money management mentorship for children from low income families. These children underwent an 18-months programme to cultivate good saving habits.

"SavingStars is cool, awesome and interesting. The teachers taught us things that we did not know before. I have also learnt more about 'needs' and 'wants'" – Pei Jun Yu, 13 years old


Tinker Kit

Children from low income families attended training in creativity development and art making through workshops organised by volunteers. The programme provided opportunities for participants to bond with their peers, parents and volunteers, and a platform to showcase their artwork at a pop-up exhibition.


Children's Charity Carnival

This event aimed to empower children to envision their aspirations. Through roleplays, games and hands-on activities brought by partners and government agencies, children learnt more about various occupations and lifeskills. They captured these visions through canvas painting which were then exhibited at Paya Lebar Kovan CC. Drop by to see them today!


3D Tronics Challenge

3D Tronics Challenge aimed to stimulate students’ interest in science and technology. Students attended workshops on robotics, 3D design and printing lessons and participated in a competition which enabled them to showcase their acquired skills.

Join us for a fun-filled Sunday, packed with activities for the entire family!
