A sight-guiding workshop, a Chinese New Year shopping trip and a 3-day roadshow were some of the activities organized to empower, raise awareness and fundraise for the visually impaired.

Previously, Project R.A.I.S.E. was known as Signature Love Project (SLP), and iterations before that have partnered with organizations to support marginalized causes such as Down Syndrome and Parkinson’s disease.

Some of the initiatives in the 4th iteration include sports engagement, photography contests for the migrant brothers to showcase their photography talent, Healthserve screening and an outing to Little India and Singapore Cultural Chinese Centre.
