HeritageCares was launched in 2016 and seeks to bring heritage to the beneficiaries of SSOs under the Community Chest. Since its launch, more than 7,000 beneficiaries have participated in HeritageCares programmes including guided tours of our museums and heritage trails, as well as hands-on workshops, and interactive programmes at the museums. These programmes are possible only because of the help of our more than 1,500 volunteers.
Youth Corp Singapore (YCS) is our partner for A Walk to Remember, which offers children from low-income families an opportunity to discover Singapore’s history through outdoor guided walks, accompanied by youth volunteers from YCS. These guided walks incorporate museum visits, and feature heritage-related activities and games at historic landmarks along NHB’s Jubilee Walk.
