"The day when the care of other people TRULY becomes more important than yourself, is the time when your's and other peoples lives change for the better"

Like any human who wants to give back, my Journey with Charity work started when I decided to clean my closet and find an abundance of clothes that never got worn, this certainly offered an opportunity to provide to others more needy than I.
Each year thereafter my social activities offered more opportunity to give back, from regular orphanage visits in Singapore to supporting the Community Chest organisation with their annual Toy Runs where the Jeep and Harley Davidson Clubs rallied together to also support the Singapore aged community by partnering with Realms of Tranquility.
These activities ultimately culminated with my biggest eye opening opportunity of all - a CSR project partner visit to Uganda in 2016 with We See Hope a supported Charity of my employer Qlik.
In Uganda with We See Hope, I witnessed the strongest form of Human belief, resolve and togetherness like nothing I'd ever witnessed before. From Children educating adults and the wider community on Child Rights to remote Communities building sustainability together with Village Investor Programs to lastly supporting young adults with effective vocational learning and employment opportunities.
Seeing first hand the impact that these programs had, helped me to realise that other communities suffering similar issues around the world should also be educated. In investigating different country situations I also identified a significant lack of Literacy in large populations in particular countries like Indonesia and Australia, hence "Dreams For Life" was born with our Vision to Eliminate Poverty by Making Dreams a Reality through education programs such as "Read For Life".
