Congratulations Team Aidha for participating in Aidha’s Tour de Singapore 2019!
On Sunday, 12th May 2019, Aidha and a team of over 100 cyclists, consisting of partners from Anza, Barclays, Cargill, Duff & Phelps, Aidha volunteers and students, cycled for Aidha’s Tour de Singapore in the OCBC Cycle 2019!
They woke at 3am to conquer the roads and fundraise for us. Also, many supporters volunteered to help us with logistics and with the cheering, pom poms and all! Not only did we fundraise but the amazing Aidha community came together, which was another fantastic outcome of the ride. Additionally, our amazing sponsors, Procter & Gamble and The Straits Wine Company, who sponsored the goodie bags and the winning prize for the top fundraiser, made the ride that extra bit special for all.
Our fundraising campaign is open until 31st May. Help us to raise $30,000 to fund 300 scholarships. Give more women the chance of a financial education and empower them to build a brighter future.
Change a life. Give the Gift of Education.
There are nearly 250,000 foreign domestic workers (FDWs) living in Singapore. They have made the difficult decision to leave behind their children and family in hopes of creating a better future. While their remittances provide much needed financial support to their families, most women return home with little to no savings at the end of their contracts.
With your help, foreign domestic workers and lower income women in Singapore can learn the skills and confidence to save, invest and start businesses of their own through Aidha’s financial education programmes. They can take their first steps towards economic independence.
Aidha’s life-changing programmes are only made possible thanks to the support of generous donors. And that’s why we need your help!
Rhea worked in a local government accounting department before coming to work in Singapore nine years ago, as a domestic helper. A mother of 3 children, she sought a better income to support her family back home.
Keen to invest in something to give herself a sustainable income on her return home, she signed up with Aidha, hoping to learn more about managing money and running a business. She graduated in 2017. Using the skills and confidence she gained at Aidha, she now has her own, thriving fish farm and has plans for expansion and diversification in the future.
Aidha is an IPC (Institution of Public Character). It means for the Bike Ride is that any donation you make to Aidha will receive a tax deduction of 250%. So, for example, if you donate $100, you will be able to deduct $250 from your taxable income. Doing good will benefit both you and Aidha!
We would also like to say a BIG THANK YOU to our sponsors for their support: Procter & Gamble which generously offered the latest premium products in the Beauty Care world from Olay and Herbal Essences to all the riders; and the Straits Wine Company for sponsoring the prize for the best fundraiser!
