This is an extension of Project Home Sweet Home - it is happening at the same time and same community. We are looking at inviting 40 elderly in Jalan Kukoh community to join us for a monthly chit chat session with their new friend (ie YOU - our beloved volunteers). And we need your help! At the same time, we are hoping that our elderly can teach our volunteers a new language or dialect during the kopi chat!

REGISTRATION POLICY

- Should there be any changes about the event , registered and waitlist volunteers will be notified via email.
- Each volunteer registration allows a maximum of 5 people. We would highly encourage each individual to register for their account as the system would send an automated reminder to the registered email. If you are coming in a group bigger than 5, please have another friend to register. This will help to update the volunteer count and the community know which event needs more volunteers.
- Volunteers are highly encouraged to update your registration if there are changes to your attendance. And you can help the us anticipate the number of volunteers turning up, and how many more to recruit.
