为较弱势的华族群体提供援助的非营利团体。

DEFINITION

Noun

A non-profit organisation that provides assistance to the less privileged within the Chinese community.

由来

  • 在1992年以前,马来族与印度族在有需要的时候,分别可以向回教社会发展理事会(Mendaki)和新加坡印度人发展协会 (Singapore Indian Development Association, SINDA)寻求援助,华族民众却没有一个具代表性的自助团体。
  • 1992年,新加坡中华总商会(Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry, SCCCI)和新加坡宗乡会馆联合总会(Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations, SFCCA)联合发起新加坡华族自助理事会(简称华助会)。
  • 华助会旨在帮助较弱势的华族群体,尤其是在教育与经济方面提供援助。通过各种项目、自助计划与互助计划,华助会帮助这些较弱势的群体,发挥他们的潜力和突破社会流动性的障碍。这些项目包括学生培育、家长教育、家庭支援和鼓励乐龄人士参加义工和康乐活动。

ETYMOLOGY

  • Before 1992, the Malays and Indians could seek assistance from the Yayasan MENDAKI and the Singapore Indian Development Association (SINDA) respectively. However, the Chinese did not have a prominent self-help group that catered to their needs.
  • In 1992, the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SCCCI) and the Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations (SFCCA) jointly set up the Singapore Chinese Development Assistance Council (CDAC).
  • CDAC aims to provide assistance to the less privileged in the Chinese community, especially through providing education and financial support. Through various projects, programmes and assistance schemes, CDAC helps the less privileged to unleash their potential and achieve greater social mobility. These programmes include student development, parent education, family support, and activities for senior citizens such as volunteer and recreational programmes.
