GLOBAL

WORKS.

In every country we’re in, our approach is to always partner with a local non-profit, to strengthen them by designing targeted solutions and programmes that will address their specific needs.

 

Our partners represent organisations that are already making a meaningful impact in their community. The role of Colours is not just offering more resources, but helping them scale their impact, overcome challenges and co-create new solutions. 

 

Take a look at the works we’ve committed to do in the nations and consider joining us by volunteering or giving through The Colours Tour 2024/25.

HOME SWEEP HOME.

EVENTS COVER IMAGES.png

Home Sweep Home is a project that enters into the homes of the vulnerable communities that live in one/two-room rental flats, or are vulnerable in other ways to reimagine and enhance their homes for a safe, hygienic and dignified living.

We do it through decluttering, refurnishing, painting, and cleaning of the home.

Home Sweep Home was birthed from the belief that a safe, hygienic, and dignified home environment is fundamental for families and individuals to thrive. The home is where the transformation of our minds and lives begins, and a simple makeover could give people a chance to a better start at life.

In the early stages of the program, the Colours team went knocking on doors of one/two-room rental flats in Singapore to find out more about the daily plight of the low-income community. We learnt about the clients’ lifestyle, needs and challenges before reimagining and transforming their homes with a fresh coat of paint and furniture.

 

Ever since we launched this program, we have started partnering with Family Service Centres (FSCs) all over Singapore.

 

The FSCs provide client referrals of families and ensure that the families continue to receive long-term support after the home makeover.

 

This program was also intentionally designed to engage local volunteers, community organisations, schools and companies in serving the vulnerable.

 

Through this program and ecosystem of stakeholders, we continue to uplift the marginalised and vulnerable in Singapore.

COLOURS FRIENDSHIP CENTRE.

EVENTS COVER IMAGES37.png

Colours Friendship Centre (CFC) is a collaborative programme with Hope Initiative Alliance (HIA) that aims to uplift and upskill migrant workers through conversations, community and courses.

Over 700,000 migrant workers toil day and night to form the backbone of Singapore’s economy. Yet, they are often treated as second-class people and pushed aside in society. During the COVID pandemic, it unveiled the harsh realities of the living conditions and plight of migrant workers. 

 

We believe a healthy society is not just one that is economically robust, but one that fosters love and care for all, regardless of background.

Through CFC, we hope to strengthen the social fabric of Singapore by cultivating greater inclusivity and compassion for our migrant brothers. A space driven by people and not by programs, CFC provides a meeting point for Singaporeans and migrant brothers to build friendships and promote social bonding.

With a community-based approach, CFC aims to uplift our migrant brothers with practical skills and knowledge from our volunteer-run courses that are designed based on their needs and interests.

EDUCATIONAL TOUR.

EVENTS COVER IMAGES38.png

The Batam Education Tour is a program that goes into rural villages in Indonesia to run school tours with fun learning activities aimed at promoting school enrolment for village children.

With the Indonesian island located less than an hour’s boat ride from Singapore, the early days of Colours were spent holding education projects in the villages.

 

When we first started, one of the challenges faced by our local NGO partner was the low school enrolment rate as parents placed greater priority on their children working to support the family. 

 

So we launched the Batam Education Tour where we brought in volunteers to run carnivals including games, song & dance, skits and activities that brought life and hope to the villages.

 

Through the carnival, the parents began to entrust their children to our NGO partner for education and development. Colours also supported in strengthening English education for teachers and students.

 

Over the years, we’ve seen thousands of these children being enrolled into schools – a huge step towards greater social equality and transformed families through the power of education.

ROHINGYA COMMUNITY HUB.

EVENTS COVER IMAGESrr-39.png

Colours is partnering with Rohingya Community Hub that aims to uplift Rohingya refugees through education and community support.

Today, there are thousands of Rohingya families that fled from their homes for a new chance at life in Malaysia. Due to their refugee status, many do not have access to basic necessities and opportunities such as finding full-time jobs, proper housing or healthcare. 

 

While statelessness presents significant challenges, we believe in Education as a vehicle of change that will give the Rohingya an ability to learn, develop their mind and even prepare them in a career to be active and contributing members of society.

 

That is why we run weekly classes at the hub, incorporating digital learning tools, visual aids and activities to provide a holistic education for children.  

 

Alongside our curriculum, we also run monthly carnivals with our volunteers which include games, song & dance, skits and other activities. These carnivals are specially themed to bring to life what the children learn in the classroom. By offering a blend of structured curriculum and exciting events like carnivals, we foster a rich learning environment that sparks curiosity and fun for children.

COLOURS HOPE CENTRE.

EVENTS COVER IMAGESrr-40.png

Colours Hope Centre is a one-stop hub that serves 100 low-income families in the Philippines. The centre provides healthcare, training and a safe place through pop-up clinics, skills training, youth & children development and community programs.

Poverty, child trafficking and a widening social inequality are major social issues that millions of Filipinos face.

We believe that strengthening the family unit in the Philippines is the solution to the deep social issues

they face.  


So, with our local NGO partner, we adopted a community of 100 families from the urban poor settlement in Paranaque. Colours Hope Centre serves this community through regular programs and services that aims to uplift them through education and social support.

Colours continues to partner with government officials, corporates and local stakeholders in serving the community and working towards replicating the family centre model throughout the Philippines.

COLOURS COMMUNITY NIGHTS.

EVENTS COVER IMAGES41.png

Colours Community Nights are gatherings held in different cities for young adults to come together to be inspired to see change in their own lives and the world around them through music, powerful stories and global friendships in a positive atmosphere. 

Our hope is for the young people in each city to be encouraged and challenged to do more as they hear from thought leaders, CEOs, changemakers and influencers who are leading social change in their spaces.

 

Through Colours Community Nights, we mobilise young people to serve the community around them and join us on our trips and volunteer opportunities.
