A little bit more about SportCares:
SportCares Foundation has been the philanthropic arm of Sport Singapore (formerly known as Singapore Sport Council) since November 2012. As a foundation, SportCares operates as a fund under the Community Foundation of Singapore.
With support from partners in the community and corporate sectors, SportCares has organised programmes and projects that have touched the lives of more than 8000 children and youth.
To promote volunteerism through sport, SportCares piloted our Young Mentors Programme–now rebranded as ChangeMakers–which teaches upper secondary and tertiary student leaders to use sport as a means of teaching values and character development to underprivileged children in primary schools.
