(1) ABOUT THE KOPI-TEH-or-MOI PROGRAMME (an extension of Home Sweet Home programme)
Often we find that conversations and interactions with the elders (as we fondly refer them as our treasured gems), lead to unexpected learnings about life and wisdom. And we hope this programme provides a platform for our volunteers and gems to spend time with each other and get to know a new buddy/teacher!
So, we would like you (our dear volunteers) to empower the seniors over a cup of coffee and your conversation with them!
