Many hackathons and innovation movements have been organised high level by large organisations or companies. But here at Leng Kee YEC, we believe that every person or organisation, big or small, should have the chance to benefit from social innovation. No challenge statement is too small to warrant a new angle to re-examine it.
This gave rise to our first-ever ground-up social innovation event, the SIF 2018! Every problem, every challenge statement you see in SIF 2018 is a collection of the various issues faced by various resident groups or beneficiaries in our area. And we invite you to give every challenge statement a chance, and to develop an idea or a solution to solve it.
Lengkok Bahru is one of Singapore's older estates, with a higher proportion of elderly residents. There are also rental blocks in the area surrounding Leng Kee Community Centre, as well as offices or headquarters of many VWOs or community partners such Enabling Village, Salvation Army, CDAC, Lion Befrienders, and many more.
A Part For Everyone To Play
We are continuing to crowd-source challenge statements, whether from a household or an organisation. Watch out for our upcoming lead-up activities!
If you have an idea that you wish to contribute, be sure to share them at our Public Festival on 9 Sep 2018. Or better still, join our SIF Hackathon!
