Our Work

For the last 50 years, the Singapore Women's Association had been rendering voluntary services with the aim of helping to make Singapore a peaceful, happy and prosperous home for Singaporeans. They had initiated several programmes and undertaken many projects to achieve the aim of creating a better quality of life for everyone.

Some of them are:

  • Ensuring better living for slum and kampong dwellers through proper use of the modern amenities and facilities provided by the Housing Development Board.
  • Promoting understanding, tolerance and co- operation among the various races in Singapore.
  • Encouraging the wise choice of some of the Asian values and customs for retention, and the selective adoption of modern, western cultures.
  • Promoting closer relationships among members of the family.
  • Assisting the authorities to reduce crime, delinquency and supporting community projects.
  • Rendering services to the various sectors of the community like the senior citizens, youth, women and the handicapped, the sick and underprivileged.
  • Fostering good international relations especially among women.

3 Pillars

Our projects and activities are guided by 3 key pillars - Elderly, Community and Diversity. We run various recurring programmes that benefit our seniors, the general community and building towards greater diversity.

The success of SWA is due to the many ladies who have served the association throughout the years. SWA also helped in hosting FAWA Convention that brings 200 women leaders from 11 Asian countries to discuss and works towards better quality of life
