Heartware Tuition Programme

For children, whose parents are incarcerated or from low-income backgrounds, keeping up with their academics is an uphill battle. The motivation to learn wanes rapidly with the lack of positive role models in their lives. The Heartware Tuition Programme aims to place these children on equal footing with their peers through free weekly tuition, driven by youth volunteers from tertiary institutions.

River Hong Bao

In collaboration with the Singapore Federation of Chinese Clans Association (SFCCA) for the River Hong Bao Project, Heartware Network volunteers serve as Volunteer Liaison Officers (VLO) responsible for hosting performers from China and Taiwan, and as ushers during the Chingay Parade.

In addition to management of their fellow volunteers, the Volunteer Liaison Committee (VLC) plans training sessions for the VLOs and Ushers, as well as their deployments for the management of performers and Chingay Parade.
