Registered as a charity under the Charities Act of Singapore, Daughters Of Tomorrow complements and supports existing training and workforce-related agencies by connecting volunteers and community resources to enable each woman on an individual level. By deep-diving into practical day-to-day constraints of these women, we offer hand-holding and individual coaching to help each woman reach regular and sustained employment.
Our beneficiaries are women aged 20 to 60 from low-income families (surviving on $200 to $500 per capita per month), mostly living in government-subsidized rental flats, and facing multiple stressors in their families. Since our incorporation in August 2014, we have impacted more than 60 women through our skills-training, job-bridging and support programmes. Through sustained employment, women in our employment bridging program regains confidence in themselves and gains a social support network that helps them through their difficult times.
