MakanMrkt – Looking for Volunteers

MakanMrkt is a social initiative aiming to support hawkers whose business may have taken a hit during this period by creating and broadcasting digital marketing content, especially for older generation hawkers who may not be digitally adept.

The team is looking for individuals who are keen in helping and supporting this cause, and will be scheduling hawker visits and filming around Singapore – no specific schedules, as many as possible!

If you are a huge foodie, and passionate to help the hawkers in need, you can indicate interest here (https://tinyurl.com/makanmrkt) or reach out to them on Telegram (@makanmrkt) to find out more!

Reimagining Singapore’s Social Sector – Resilient and Future-Ready

The COVID-19 Taskforce for Non-Profits is a ground-up initiative that seeks to support Non-Profits through pro-bono consulting projects. The group also collaborated with the National Volunteer & Philanthrophy Center (NVPC) and Lien Center for Social Innovation on a thought leadership piece, highlighting its perspectives on the future of beneficiary, donor and volunteer engagement.

The group is excited to launch the publication at its upcoming webinar, and are proud to have Speaker Tan Chuan-Jin as its Guest-of-honour to share his perspective on what makes a future-proof non-profit.
