6 January 2006
In the last two months of the year, in-kind donations from SUPERSEED reached some 15 grassroots groups in Singapore. We distributed over S$20k in fire extinguishers, computers, projection screens, new t-shirts and other items. More than that, we have brought smiles to the faces of disadvantaged children, contributed to the excellent work of non-profit organisations, enabled Changi Prison inmates to make a contribution to the community and learn new skills, and facilitated corporate giving and civic responsibility.
We have set ambitious yet attainable goals for 2006, including plans to help eliminate the digital divide both here in Singapore and in The Philippines. Our first international shipment - which will aid two organisations working with Sri Lankans to rebuild their lives post-tsunami -- is scheduled to leave for Sri Lanka in February.
Our biggest challenge remains fundraising. Everything we've done to date has been accomplished with no money. Our partners and volunteers have been fantastic. In a way that makes our achievements even more impressive. On the other hand, though, a lack of funds will make it harder for SUPERSEED to achieve institutional sustainability.
