It is with great joy and honour that Arc received its first inaugural Charity Transparency Award by the Charity Council on 28 September 2016. Arc has since garnered the award for 2 more consecutive years in 2017 and 2018.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to our Board of Governance and our precious sponsors, staff, partners, medical team, families, and volunteers who have helped us maintain responsible and good governance.
Here’s to building a strong circle of care for our children!
The Singapore Woman Award, organized by MediaCorp, is an annual tribute celebrating ordinary women who have accomplished extraordinary achievements.
Arc would not be around today if not for two women who passionately believe that all children deserve that little extra.
Ronita Paul and Geraldine Lee, Arc founders and centre managers, were both nominees and honorees at the Singapore Woman Award 2015 for the work they do for Arc and the community.
Humble and unassuming, they remain a core inspiration to Arc’s children, families, staff and volunteers to always place others before self.
“To be nominated and be up against some of the very best is an honour.” – RONITA PAUL
“We would like to thank MediaCorp and Pamela Oei who nominated us. This recognition is humbling for us as it further propels us to continue to give our utmost to the children and their families.” – GERALDINE LEE
Foreign Affairs and Law Minister Mr K Shanmugam graced the event in March 2015. In his speech, he also outlined some of the positive measures that are being taken to address the challenges women face at work and at home.
