Our 2nd upcoming event will be a fundraising event! This is regarding Project Poverty Living Around You (PLAY), which SSWS has adopted.  Project PLAY is a project initiated by Social Work undergraduates, which includes a theatre production and an exhibition to tackle the issue of poverty in Singapore. Hence, the objective of this event is to raise funds through the collection of newspaper so as to launch this project. We really hope you could join us in our Newspaper Collection / Flyer Distribution to raise funds! You can sign up at the link below:
We really hope you will join us because we need your help to make project PLAY possible! ( :

Last but not least, our very own Social Work majors have piloted the first Inter-Professional Education (IPE) together with the Nursing Faculty students and are currently embarking on this exciting journey in implementing a project entitled Project H3: Heads, Hands, Hearts! It aims to foster working relationships among Social Work and Nursing students, to enable students to see patients using a person-in-environment perspective and to educate students on effective communication with patients from different backgrounds. H3 will last over 2 days, 31st August and 7th September 2013:

Day 1:
·      Part 1: Walk-A-Mile, a poverty simulation game which participants will assume roles play in induced real life scenarios and learn to conduct decision making that would enhance their health given their situation.
·      Part 2: Talks by professionals in the field

Day 2 (AM):
·      Visiting of older adults in a Senior Activity Centre (SAC).

If you can make it on both dates and are interested in experiencing a journey that increases your empathy and understanding of the lives of others, we want you! All you need to do is to simply click on the link below and fill up your particulars by 25th August 2013 so that we can contact you for further details.
