We are a social movement consisting of people with a passion to empower the next generation to develop their talents using arts, music and leadership forms.
As a ground-up tribe, we resource the work of children and youth in the 4 to 14 age window.
We began locally, in Singapore, giving guitars away to children who could not afford one. Then, we made trips to orphanages and kids centres in Indonesia and Myanmar and did the same for children there.
Soon, we became a movement of like-minded dreamers interested in the work of empowering the next generation. As a movement and not an organisation, we do not store funds. Instead, we raise them as needs arise and we connect the right people with the resources to fulfil our SONG-OUT schemes.
We have two main types of activities in a year that you can get in on:
- SONG-TRIPs are conducted regularly by volunteers to orphanages/children centres in cities such as Batam, Yangon, Penang etc. There, children are engaged in music, arts, handicrafts, and other creative pursuits.
- SONGKIDS FESTIVALS exist primarily to serve the underprivileged children in a city, and the invitation is extended to all the orphanages within a city. With the collaborative support of local sponsors, businesses and volunteers, children who attend the festival get the opportunity to experience song, dance, friendship and fun in an environment that prioritises and values their wellbeing.
