Volunteers at Home 🏡

Updated: Feb 19

Everyday Heroes making a difference.

COVID-19 has brought about many challenges. There's no question about that. But we think it's also an opportunity to be thankful!

When SHINE migrated its reading support programme, Reading Odyssey, online from the beginning of May 2020 through a redesigned format: Stories at Home, five out of the 10 community groups we partner came onboard.

Stories At Home

As a result, more than 100 children benefited from Stories at Home with the support of 80 volunteers. While the programme is meant for primary school pupils, some of their pre-schooler siblings also joined in the sessions.

With the support and care of the community, children can continue to learn even when in challenging circumstances.

National Champions "High Five" on Social Media

During the Phase 2 period, many Singaporeans also took part in the #SHINEHi5Challenge to exercise, donate and nominate their friends to support children and youth in need.

A big shout-out to Charmaine Soh, our Netball Singapore Captain for sharing on Instagram and rallying her teammates to exercise to support our kids.

Charmaine shared in her post that "This is a very meaningful initiative to help children and youth from vulnerable families, especially those badly affected by Covid-19."

It’s also inspiring to see our national squash champion Au Yeong Wai Yhann volunteering as SHINE Charity Ambassador for #SHINEHi5Challenge This amazing athlete did a different exercise each day, posted on Instagram and nominated 25 of her friends to join the challenge!

You can check out Day 2 "with some killer double unders" here:
