Keen to volunteer in Singapore but not sure where to start? In the second part of this series our expert gives an overview of charities in Singapore
Feeling inspired to start donating your time after Part 1 of Volunteering in Singapore last week, but feeling overwhelmed with the over 2,000 charities in Singapore to choose from? Not to worry, help is at hand! In the second part of our series, Karen Fernandez shares her considerable NGO experience and helps identify some of the charities you can begin with, mama. For even more, you can always browse through our Sassy Mama Supports series, too!
Once you’ve decided where your passion lies and how much time you can feasibly commit to a cause, the next step is to identify a NGO and start talking with them. But, there are so many – even in tiny Singapore – that it’s completely understandable if you are feeling a tad overwhelmed! It may be easier to start with some of the broader categories listed below first. Within each category, I’ve included some of the bigger NGOs as well as the smaller and newer ones – all of them will undoubtedly be very happy to hear from you and benefit from your time and talents.
