WHO ARE OUR NEIGHBOURS?

Just next door, there are many children and youth in our neighbouring cities living in unimaginable conditions.
In pursuit of better opportunities in the city, many families are trapped in overcrowded and makeshift housing, trying to make ends meet.

THE CHANGING FACE OF POVERTY

These children and youth next door struggle with the “urban paradox”.

Proximity to services and necessities is not equivalent to access and the urban poor, especially children, remain excluded from the benefits of urbanisation, suffering more severe deprivations than their rural peers.

IMAGINE A BETTER WORLD WE ALL DESERVE

For this year’s Youth For Change Conference, World Vision has teamed up with Youth Corps Singapore (Youth Expedition Project), to bring a unique virtual initiative for us to get to know our peers next door and how we can empower them to have a better chance at life.

Youth Expedition Project Goes Online (YEP-GO) provides a platform for youths to continue volunteering with overseas communities without travel. Youths can connect with overseas partner organisations to develop programmes such as online classes or training through virtual means.
