Making Community Investment Worthwhile
Singapore Compact held a sharing and networking session on 27 March 2015, for our members to share and learn about on how community engagement projects and initiatives can be made more meaningful and sustainable.
The session began with networking over light refreshments, before observing a moment of silence for our late former Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
