Singapore-based Groups I Support

Singapore is quite a happening place. Attending the different events past few years have led me to meet many passionate individuals who are running or involved with various wonderful groups/ organisations/ communities. Do check out their respective websites to learn more about them and what they are doing! PS: If the groups are already in the “Singapore’s Green Community” tab or “Volunteering in Singapore” tab, chances are, they won’t be listed here. Also.. this list is not exhaustive- I went through 1.6K Facebook friends and 1.9K Facebook likes and managed to pick out this before I thought this is a good list for now.
