1-18 November 2018 – CIP Project with students from ITE
With special thanks to Nurin Najwa Binti Amran, Ang Zheng Quan Dion, Cheng Qi Ting Joanna, Lina Li Yuan, Nick Bryan Tan, Tan Xuan Xin Dulcie!
6 students from ITE volunteered with Art for Good to create their own art program with the underprivileged children and followed by fundraising by selling these keychains at our Christmas booth. They made plastic shrink keychains together with the children from the Art Outreach Program, where the drawing and colouring of the keychains was done in the classroom. The ITE students then brought them back to microwave and attached the keychain mechanisms. The children from the Art Outreach program got to keep two keychains while the rest were sold at the booth. Keychains are available on our online shop!

Lithan Academy PCP Program
Nov 2017- July 2018
I had the opportunity to learn about managing a micro business, particularly a social enterprise that works closely with various partners, ranging from government to non-government organizations, educational institutions as well as corporate entities. Art for Good also focuses on employee development, as I was a beneficiary of the Professional Conversion Programme, a 9-month course which equipped me with digital marketing skills to boost the company’s marketing efforts. The most memorable experience through my time here was making a difference to youths at risk, through art and art therapy. Watching them grow and express themselves better through art made my job all the more meaningful.
Internship from: June – August 2019
This internship has provided me with many opportunities, where I have gained experience that helps me both professionally and personally. By helping out behind the scenes for events and handling the website requirements, gave me insight to how such organisations are being managed. One of my experiences was that I had first-hand contact with the beneficiaries like special needs children and underprivileged children. Previously, I have done volunteering work for underprivileged elderly, but helping the children gave me a different vibe as the children are active and constantly smiling. For these experiences, I am very grateful to have worked with Art for Good.
Internship period: March – August 2020
My Internship with Art for Good provided me opportunities to handle tasks which I would not have imagined myself to learn. Not being very IT Savvy, helping with the back end of the website was daunting in the beginning. However, I got to learn many things just from handling the backend of the website as I navigated and familiarised with the system. Handling the Social Media design and posts, I feel more confident with myself and handling my tasks as the days go by. Knowing more about the Social Enterprise Model gave me a different view on how we could use art to improve the lives of others. Most importantly, art improves mental health and improves well being. All in all, my internship with Art for Good allowed me to learn and experience new things and I am thankful for the opportunity given by Art for Good!
