This Award identifies and further encourages individuals from the citizen sector with a strong drive and vision to resolve social issues, thereby creating positive social impact in their respective communities in the ASEAN region.
The inaugural ASEAN Social Impact Award will honour Dr. Ee Peng Liang’s generous contributions as the founding father of the charity sector in Singapore. The award is inspired by an individual with a selfless drive to uplift communities in need as well as an active philanthropist who focused on supporting causes that made a lasting change. Hence, the Award will not only celebrate social impact organizations but will also convene philanthropists committed to collective action for community betterment in the ASEAN region.
Candidates and their initiatives would also be assessed based on social impact, entrepreneurial quality, innovation quality and sustainability. The candidate’s area of work can include sectors such as economic development, migrants, environment, health and nutrition, ageing, learning and education and others.
Three winners will be selected, and each winner will receive a cash prize of up to S$50,000 to further scale the impact of their work.
