It took months of hard work and planning for the organising committee, volunteers, and youth performers to put up such an amazing show, dedicated to celebrate the generous donors, as well as pay tribute to the strength of the beneficiaries of our North West Student Support Fund (SSF) campaign.
Launched in May 2022, the SSF campaign supports less-privileged students with financial support to defray educational expenses, and enrichment opportunities to learn valuable soft skills. The community's support for the SSF over the years have enabled us to uplift the lives of over 130,000 students, with many more set to benefit in the near future.
Guest of honour of the North West Youth Concert, Mdm President, announced the successful SSF fundraising campaign:
The organising committee was led by long-time volunteers, Mr. Allen Ang, played a big part in the success of the campaign. Mr. Allen Ang spent the last few months exhausting all avenues, to garner support for this meaningful cause.
Likewise, for Mdm Heng, who was in the inaugural organising committee, some 10 years ago.
From dancers to musicians who are passionate about their craft, youths were given the voice to express themselves through the North West Youth Concert. A line-up of nine performances took the stage, showcasing their talents and appreciation to the special guests and donors of the evening.
The youngest performer, Riley, 10, shared her experience on performing in front of a large audience for the first time.
Leader of Beat A 'Box and finale performance on Green Drumming, Arthur, hoped to spread the message of sustainability through their performance.
