Blossom Home Refresh
A youth led project under the guidance of Blossom World Society (BWS).
It will be an annual BWS flagship event to enhance intergeneration cohesion and understanding through acts of service towards the pioneer generation via ‘refreshing’ their households.
‘Clean a Home, Paint a Smile’
Through a direct act of service towards the elderly, we aim to achieve 3 levels of development: personal, interpersonal and the community. Via small acts of cleaning and painting the houses of the elderly, we aim to nurture kindness amongst the volunteers to appreciate the hard work of our pioneer generation. They too will become old. Hence, enhancing intergeneration cohesion and understanding. This is especially pertinent when ageing population is prevalent in Singapore. Lastly, through this project, we aim to inspire more to start giving, either to the elderly or other under privileged people in Singapore.
What have we done?
We have benefitted more than 36 households and attracted more than 300 volunteers thus far.
Testimonials of volunteers:
“Although this process is tiring however it is fruitful. It opened up my horizons to notice the lower income families and reach out to them when needed”
