Featured Organizations

This is an overview of the AWA's Featured Organizations for 2016-2017. For information about upcoming volunteer events, visit Community Service.


kidsREAD is a nationwide reading program launched in 2004 by then Deputy Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. The mission of kidsREAD is to promote the love of reading and cultivate good reading habits among young Singaporeans, specifically children from low-income families. The target audience of kidsREAD is children between the ages of 4 and 8, regardless of race or religion. AWA organizes volunteers to work at kidsREAD clubs throughout Singapore. Volunteers will choose a club location that suits their availability. A one-time training session is required. Contact the AWA coordinator at kidsread@awasingapore.org for more information.

Frequency: Club schedules vary. We ask that volunteers commit to attend on a regular basis.


HOME is a charity that works closely with the Ministry of Manpower and Immigration officers in Singapore focusing on advocacy, welfare and empowerment for migrant workers and trafficked victims in Singapore. HOME collaborates with other NGOS, such as UN Women and the Singapore Law Society, as well as corporations and associations. AWA is organizing a variety of group activities with the women living in HOME shelters. Contact the AWA coordinator at home@awasingapore.org.

Frequency: 1 to 2 activities per month

The Ronald McDonald House Charities

RMHC provides support and facilities to families who are caring for a sick child. Volunteers man the reception desk at the Ronald McDonald Family Room (at NUS), a room where families to go for comfort and regrouping. AWA volunteers work the 9 am – 1 pm and 1 pm – 5 pm shifts on Wednesdays. (A 5 pm – 9 pm is also available.) Weekly or monthly shift patterns are available. Brief training is required before your first shift. Contact the AWA coordinator at rmhc@awasingapore.org.

Frequency: 2 to 4 shifts per month, 4 hours per shift

Mt. Elizabeth Hospital

Mt. Elizabeth hosts many patients who are not Singapore residents. People who come to Singapore for procedures or treatments don’t always have the daily support of family or close friends, so AWA organizes volunteers to visit these patients in their recovery wards, providing them with company and reading materials. We need your help in two ways:
  1. Donate current magazines by dropping them off at the AWA office, and
  2. Donate your time and outgoing personality to participate in the AWA visitation program and bring some joy to hospital-bound expatriates.
Brief training and disclaimer form required. Contact the AWA coordinator at mounte@awasingapore.org.

Frequency: 2 hours per visit, starting at 9:45 am or 2 pm, usually during the last two weeks of the month

Food from the Heart

FFTH is a non-profit voluntary food distribution program established in February 2003 after Singapore-based Austrian couple Henry and Christine Laimer read a report in The Sunday Times about bakeries discarding their unsold bread. Stirred, they then decided to channel surplus food from bakeries to those in need. AWA periodically calls for volunteers (between 12 and 15) for food packing drives. Look for announcements on our Community Service page, our Events page, and our Facebook group. Contact the AWA coordinator at ffth@awasingapore.org

Have a charity in mind that you’d like AWA to support ad-hoc? Email commservice@awasingapore.org to discuss.
