ONE (SINGAPORE) is excited to announce the online launch of the $10 Campaign! The number 10 serves as a constant reminder that at least one in ten Singaporeans lives in poverty. The year-long campaign will raise awareness of poverty and inequalities in Singapore. It will also raise funds to generate short-term and long-term solutions to poverty through a two-pronged approach. Proceeds support an Emergency Fund for low-income families as well as research and advocacy efforts.
Most Singaporeans living in poverty are employed and either face barriers to accessing government assistance, or the assistance they do receive is insufficient. Often, urgent needs go unmet. The Emergency Fund created by the $10 Campaign assists low-income families with essential everyday expenses, like milk formula, diapers or a ride to work on public transport. Research and advocacy help create long-term solutions to end poverty and inequalities. Research is essential to identify social and policy gaps. Advocacy enables us to raise awareness and take action to fill the gaps.
There are many ways you can get take action to support the $10 Campaign:
- Take the $10 Challenge
- Join a Street Team
- Host a corporate roadshow
- Stay up-to date via SMS messages and commit to share these with friends, family and colleagues
ONE (SINGAPORE) looks forward to working with you to create solutions to poverty and inequalities in Singapore. Together, we can Make Poverty History.
