[AMP] Social workers have it tough.
Local Posted 4 weeks ago

Social workers have it tough. Their lives often revolve around others and the work that they do sometimes consumes them emotionally. But they are driven by their passion to help others and often feel rewarded when those under their care do well and gain self-reliance.

As we celebrate our colleagues from AMP's Social Services Division, here is a look into a typical day in the life of case officer, Ms Suhailah Sapuan, who works with families under AMP's Adopt a Family & Youth Scheme (AYFS).

#MotivationMonday: Writer and designer, Graham Hill, lays out the facts in this short video: we have more stuff than we’ve ever had in history, yet many of us are far from happy. At times, we buy way more than we need.

His recommendation is simple: we need to edit our life – just like writing. When we are not weighed down by our possessions, we have more freedom (and more money!) to pursue the activities, experiences, and memories that truly matter to us.

Also, tune in to Mediacorp Radio WARNA 94.2FM this Thursday, 18 May at 5.00pm where our officers from AMP Debt Advisory Centre will share their thoughts on the importance of financial literacy, especially among youths. (more…)

Local Posted 2 months ago

AMP senior manager Hameet Khanee told The Sunday Times that easy access to narcotics has contributed to the increase in the number of Malay drug abusers.

Highlighting that some drugs are easily available online, she added: "Current awareness programmes and drug prevention campaigns should be enhanced, especially those targeted at schools.

"More effort should go into enhancing the role of the family as the main avenue of support and educator. This is particularly more important for families where both parents are working and supervision is minimal."

In a move to reach out to Malay/Muslim drug offenders who are still behind bars and their families, AMP launched last month its new Development and Reintegration Programme.

Madam Hameet said there are two phases in this initiative. The first one has 10 sessions covering topics on reflection, strengthening families, financial literacy, work-related skills and new beginnings.

These are designed to complement the programmes that are currently being offered by the Singapore Prison Service.

The second phase focuses on after-care, with case work services for inmates and their families.

There are 23 inmates and families in the pilot run. The goal is to support up to 100 inmates and their families over a year.

A Ray of Light in the Darkness

Alhamdulillah, we have raised more than $130,000 through our telepoll campaign on MediaCorp Radio Station Warna 94.2FM in aid of the Adopt a Family & Youth Scheme (AFYS) over the past four weeks.

However, we are still $20,000 short of our target of $150,000 needed to help the families under AFYS.

With your support and generous contribution, the families under AFYS will be assisted in their journey towards achieving self-reliance through various economic empowerment and socio-educational programmes.

Most importantly, we are helping these families strengthen their family unit.

Our telepoll lines will be open for donations till 24 July 2017.

You can still lend your support by calling:
1900 112 4020 (for $20 donation)
1900 112 4050 (for $50 donation)

Join us in our efforts to uplift the socio-economic status of underprivileged families.

Help spread the word to aid our cause. Your generosity will be most appreciated.

#ICYMI

COMPASSION 8888 made it to the Singapore Book of Records as the largest distribution of nasi minyak packages in one day!

AMP-Comma Convention and Free Food for All thank all of the donors, volunteers and supporters for contributing towards the success of our charity drive.

Held on Saturday 11 February 2017, our event was attended by Mr Amrin, Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Home Affairs, who helped in the preparing of the meals; as well as Mr Zainul Abidin Rasheed, who flagged off our volunteer drivers carrying the meals to the beneficiaries.

We hope the event had been meaningful and shed some light on the socio-economic divide in Singapore to our participants.

Following this, CommaCon will be organising an experiential bus tour to highlight the many layers of "poverty" in Singapore. Do add us on www.facebook.com/commaconvention to keep posted on this and other upcoming events!

A Ray of Light in the Darkness

While we would never expect calamity to befall us or our families, none of us can say for sure that it will never happen. Rarely are we prepared for when it does happen. Many of the families under AMP's Adopt a Family & Youth Scheme (AFYS) have gone through such difficulties and with the help rendered under the scheme, are staying resilient in the face of tough times. The scheme supports these families in their effort towards building a better future for themselves.

Tune in to Mediacorp Radio WARNA 94.2FM to listen to the interview of the beneficiaries assisted under AFYS.

📖 Kenali peluang baru demi wujud dalam ekonomi masa depan
[Berita Minggu, Pg 11, 1 Jan 2017]

____________________________

Pada masa depan, ekonomi Singapura dan dunia akan melalui pelbagai perubahan di mana ketergantungan pada pasaran tradisional akan berkurangan.

Peralihan pertumbuhan dan teknologi akan memberi kesan jangka panjang dan akan berlaku lebih pesat.

Perusahaan baru yang dapat seiring dengan ekonomi baru akan merancakkan keadaan ekonomi di Singapura dan di samping itu, memberi peluang pekerjaan, menajamkan kemahiran dan keupayaan dan berpeluang mengembangkan sayapnya. Namun, setiap usaha ini bukanlah mudah.

1) Kebanyakan dari perusahaan sudah pun mula memanfaatkan teknologi dalam operasi bisnis mereka dan mengenal pasti peluang-peluang mereka di ekonomi akan datang.

2) Kenali juga wadah perniagaan yang boleh membantu anda seperti penasihat-penasihat perniagaan, geran pemerintah, pemodal teroka (venture capitalists), inisiatif 'crowdfunding' dan juga ruang kerja bersama (co-working space).

3) Perusahaan-perusahaan perlu peka tentang jalan keluar mereka.

4) Perusahaan dalam industri yang sama mungkin boleh meluaskan pasaran bersama. Lebih besar pasaran, lebih banyak bahagian untuk setiap pengusaha.

5) Akhir sekali, jika anak-anak muda cenderung dengan keusahawanan dan perusahaan baru, sokongilah mereka.

Amat penting untuk kita dan perusahaan kita bersiap sedia untuk mengharungi ekonomi baru dan cabaran yang akan timbul.

To our members, volunteers and donors

As we enter 2017, we want to take this opportunity to reflect on AMP’s accomplishments in 2016, many of which are due to the contributions of members, volunteers and donors like you. We rely upon members of our community who generously share their time and expertise to advance AMP’s purpose — and we are truly grateful for each one of you.

Since you are among these generous contributors, we would like to acknowledge your efforts as we highlight some of our successes last year:

- Achieved a turnover of $16.8 million as a Group

- Raised more than $350,000 through our 25th Anniversary Charity Dinner graced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in November 2016

- Awarded the Charity Transparency Award by the Charity Council

- Established the first-ever engineering scholarship for Malay/Muslim undergraduates in partnership with SUTD Singapore University of Technology & Design and Lembaga Biasiswa Kenangan Maulud (PMBM Scholarship Fund Board).

- Organised Comma Convention, a convention for youths of all races to come together to discuss sensitive issues; the first-ever convention organised at a national platform where the lead initiator was a Malay/Muslim organisation

- Produced our first-ever TV series, Buku 555, on Mediacorp Suria to raise awareness on debt issues

- Introduced the Renung Sejenak series on Warna 94.2FM and Berita Harian Singapura to raise awareness of and encourage reflection on issues such as education, family, finance, youth, marriage and health. The series is currently still running in Berita Minggu.

On behalf of the AMP Board of Directors and staff, we thank you for helping us to deliver on our purpose: to help you realise the positive potential of helping the community to scale greater heights of achievement. We have had a busy and productive year, and we look forward to your continued support in 2017 and beyond as we advance our purpose in serving the community. Please visit us online (www.amp.org.sg) to find new ways to contribute. Do read our Annual Report 2016 and let us know your views and ideas on how AMP can do better in realising its mission and goals.

We have reviewed AMP’s direction and priorities and have come up with our 5-year Strategic Plan (2017-2021). We will share this with you at a forum by the second quarter of 2017.

We wish you all the best for a happy and prosperous new year.

Sincerely
Abdul Hamid Bin Abdullah
