For the second year running, ISCOS joined hands with Goldbell Foundation to award over $63,000 worth of bursaries to 193 underprivileged yet deserving students at the Goldbell-Yellow Ribbon Fund-ISCOS Bursary Award presentation ceremony held on 9 December 2016 at OnePeople.SG. Goldbell Foundation is the sole sponsor for the awards this year.
The awards were presented to children of ex-offenders from low-income families under the Yellow Ribbon Fund-ISCOS Fairy Godparent Programme (FGP), to reward them for their hard work and perseverance. The students beamed with pride and excitement as they headed onstage to receive bursaries ranging from $200 to $500 each, in the presence of their loved ones.
We sincerely thank Madam Rahayu Mahzam (Member of Parliament for Jurong GRC) for gracing our event and giving words of encouragement to the students. We would also like to thank our ISCOS volunteers who have contributed to the success of this event.
The ISCOS Bursary Award was also covered by The New Paper, Berita Harian and Shin Min Daily. Thank you for spreading the word about our social cause and the work we do.
