Actxplorer is embarking on a new dialogue series starting 2018!
Featuring Social Enterprises from around Southeast Asia, we hope to provide a platform for them to share about their acts of doing good that are impacting the communities around them. Through these exchanges, we hope to inspire more to make a change in Singapore and in our neighbouring countries.
“After all that is said and done, usually more is said than done.”
Indeed, there is still so much to be done.
In our inaugural session Beyond Refuge, we are inviting speakers from two Kuala Lumpur-based social impact businesses that work with the refugee community to share about their work.
The Impact ActXchange: Beyond Refuge
Date: 1 November 2018
Time: 7.30pm – 9.30pm
Venue: The New Charis Mission, Kembangan-Chai Chee Community Hub
Speaking Organisations: Dignity for Children, The Picha Project
Kindly RSVP here!
We appreciate your patience as we furnish this page with more details on the talk and the speakers who will be sharing about their journey in doing good!
Guest organisations and speakers:
Dignity for Children works to provide quality education for marginalised children in Malaysia, including refugees from other parts of Southeast Asia and the Middle East. Besides English language education, children also participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities and vocational training to improve their confidence and employability. Now ito their 20th year of operation, Dignity has won multiple international awards for the work they are doing. Click here to find out more about them and what they do!
Rebecca Lin is one of the teachers at Dignity School, a subsidiary of Dignity Foundation, and school to over 1000 children from marginalised communities. Through quality education and enterprise training, children are empowered to succeed and break the cycle of poverty. The success of this school is nothing short of amazing.
The Picha Project was started by 3 fresh graduates who had a simple vision of providing livelihood for refugee families in Malaysia. These families struggle to find employment due to their lack of identity. Today, they run a food catering business featuring recipes from all over the world, channelling the income back to these families who can now cook for a living.

Suzanne Ling is a co-founder of The Picha Project, a social enterprise that empowers the marginalised through sustainable food catering. They provide job opportunities as well as a platform for communities to share their local cuisine with others.
