Twenty years ago, my brother and I set up EtonHouse. Since then, it has been our privilege to collaborate closely with families to form a close-knit school community and together, do our part to shape the future through the care and education of our children.
However, there are children who need our support, right here in Singapore. Born into disadvantaged families, they are deprived of a safe and stimulating foundation in the early years. We fear this will make it impossible for them to escape the cycle of poverty.
Two years ago, with your support, we were able to raise money to help these children through the EtonHouse Community Fund. We allocated $100,000 to ECDA KidSTART, an initiative for disadvantaged children. An additional $100,000 was donated to the Punggol North Community Development & Welfare Fund to assist needy families through their Child Development Accounts.
This year, we plan to do even better. We are excited to announce that the EtonHouse Community Fund will be organizing the EtonHouse Charity Walk. Proceeds from the event will be channelled to ECDA KidSTART and to the Bishan North Welfare Fund.
The walk will be held on the 11th of November 2017 (Saturday) at Fort Canning Green. Our Guest-of-Honour, Mrs. Josephine Teo, Minister in Prime Minister’s Office and Second Minister for Manpower and Home Affairs, will flag off the walk at 9.00 a.m. The walk will end in a funfair for the community where we hope to generate additional funds for charity.
If you have any questions or more ideas, please discuss with our Parent Liaison Office. Donations through cash/crossed cheque can be made payable to the ‘EtonHouse Community Fund Limited’.
We look forward to your kind and generous support towards our humble initiative.
