  5. 5. Chairman’s Message I discovered an interesting fact recently about something I thought I knew all about – apples. The apple is a fruit that is frequently associated with ex-offenders with the analogy of the rotten apple one that is often used to characterise them. However, I learnt that if you cut an apple sideways, you see that the core is actually formed in the shape of a star – so even a rotten apple has a star inside it waiting to come out. Another eventful year has passed and For the year in review, more than sors for their generous sponsorships I am pleased to see several new 2,200 ex-offenders and their family and all donors for donating towards initiatives being implemented for the members utilised and benefited our cause.

  17. 17. Outreach and Awareness 1 May 2009 Singapore Island Country Club - May Day Donation The Singapore Island Country Club’s May Day Charity Open grew from humble beginnings in 1972 and has become a popular, long standing tradition of the Club. This annual charity drive brings together members, corporations, businesspeople, staff and supporters to contribute to the lives of the less fortunate. Since its inception, the event has raised $14 million for over 70 charities, earning the Club its most prized accolade, “The Club with a Heart”. What started out as a charity golf game has now grown into a Club-wide effort by the various sporting and lifestyle communities to raise funds for the needy and underprivileged in a concerted, yet diverse effort. The happiness and appreciation shown by the beneficiaries with these donations cannot be described in words. This has been made possible by the tireless efforts of staff and volunteers and importantly, the abundance of very generous donations. In 2009, SICC raised an admirable amount whereby 14 charities were chosen as beneficiaries. SACA is pleased to be one of the recipients. 3 June 2009 Charity Film Premiere - State of Play 620 movie-goers enjoyed an evening at the cinema despite the double trouble of the economic gloom and flu outbreak. State of Play, a political thriller starring Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck certainly “put journalism and politics in a different perspective,” as our guest-of-honour Mr. Lim Boon Heng (Minister, Prime Minister’s office) remarked in the lift on his way out of Cathay Cineleisure after enjoying the movie. Mr. Jeffrey Beh, Chairman of SACA, highlighted in his speech that “due to troubled times the economy is currently facing, voluntary welfare organizations are painfully feeling its effects. There is nothing to do other than to accept the challenge placed before us and strive to do our best to meet the ever growing needs of those who require some assistance to get by.” Our supporters went against the downward pull of the economy and helped us raise a record $111,400. A teapot handcrafted by a student in a pottery workshop held at Kaki We lovingly named it, our Pot of Hope. Bukit Prison School was presented to our guest-of-honour. CA SA 0 1 9/ 15 AR 0
  18. 18. Outreach and Awareness 6 September 2009 Running into Prison This inaugural fun run organised by the Yellow Ribbon Project saw participants run past historical sites such as the Johor Battery, Changi Chapel Museum, Old Changi Prison Wall and into the prison ground itself! Curious participants were intrigued to see the mock-up prison cell that was set up. Hanniel Choong, an ex-offender who took part and outpaced many in the race, demonstrated his determination to outrun his drug abusing past. This was an inspiration to many inmates. On site, there were amusements to enjoy such as street magicians, free ice-cream and stage performances by ex-offenders. The public gained a new perspective “in prison”. We also participated with an information booth with the objective of building awareness and recruiting new volunteers. 29 October 2009 Experiencing a Black Out “When there is a black out, bring out the light.” This is the motto of a group of do-gooders, mainly business professionals who are the best of friends. The organisers teamed up with us for the one- night BLACKOUT event at Mt Emily; funds raised were channeled to the Education Fund to support ex-offenders' reintegration into society through education. The organizers of Blackout@Emily felt that incarceration is akin to experiencing a ‘blackout’. Can a life that has gone through a blackout re-adjust and reintegrate into society? Can a person who is here but really away for years get back on the right track? Can a person regain his confidence and self-esteem and walk out of his own darkness? Where is the real blackout? BLACKOUT celebrates the simple gesture of reaching out to light a candle in the dark - just when it is needed most. Tery Chua, a trainer with Right Impact Training, who is the leader of the organising committee hopes that through BLACKOUT they can support the assimilation of ex-offenders into society, and bring greater awareness to young professionals regarding SACA and the work it does.

  19. 19. Outreach and Awareness Community Visits 14 August 2009 MHA Visits SACA Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Senior Parliamentary Secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs visited SACA in August 09. The objective of the visit was to find out more about the service gaps in the community faced by ex-offenders. After spending an afternoon understanding our services, Mr Masagos expressed interest in meeting up with the students who had benefited from the Education Support Program (ESP), a service that provides funding, support networks and workshops to motivate student-clients who are enthusiastic about upgrading their skills and continuing their learning. Seven students who are currently pursuing diplomas in various polytechnics met the Senior Parliamentary Secretary in September. It was a fruitful session with informal dialogue and interactions between our esteemed guest and the students. The students felt comfortable to openly share their thoughts, and our guest enjoyed listening to their ideas. Both sides had such an enjoyable time, it was difficult to say goodbye! 29 March 2010 Prisons Counsellors and CNB drops in 16 in-care prison counsellors and representatives from the Central Narcotic Bureau paid a visit to get a better understanding of the services offered at aftercare organisations. The members, who work with drug & inhalant abusers as well as long-term offenders, found this visit helpful and of much relevance to their work in prison. “ I like doing what I do because I believe in second chances. Having the public support our cause is certainly encouraging to the work that we do. “ CA Christine, Communications & Partnerships 0 SA 1 9/ 17 AR 0

I took a step at a time with care. And whenever I was confused or lost, THEY helped me by guiding me out of the darkness. THEY don’t feel tired nor get bored with our questions. THEY didn’t give up on us. THEY try very hard to keep us on the right track. THEY make me feel at ease which gives me the strength to move on with my life. THEY are like angels in human form.

  27. 27. Education Support Programme Programme Activities 13 March 2009 Gaining Self and Esteem Our first workshop focused on building confidence and self-esteem. This was an important topic to kick off the New Year, as we believe with confidence and high self-esteem one is less likely to give in to peer pressure and negative influences. It was also an opportunity to introduce the freshmen to their seniors in the support group, resulting in positive relationships. Guest speaker, Mr Jonathan Lee worked with the students on how having self-esteem works to their advantage in their everyday lives. 30 April 2009 Meditation for Improved Concentration As part of its Vocational Service Committee project, the Rotary Club of Singapore collaborated with Sensei International to organise a half-day workshop for the student-clients. Mr Gerald Abeyawardena, a senior trainer with Sensei International, emphasized the importance of life purpose, and demonstrated how a positive attitude plus passion can help students achieve their goals. The workshop equipped students with the tools and meditation techniques for self-improvement, self-empowerment and self-discovery. “ The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet. ” Aristotle 0 SA CA 1 9/ 25 AR 0
