It was reported that a new social entrepreneurship award was launched by the NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences’ Department of Social Work on 8 May to recognise individuals from social organisations and philanthropists who have made a positive difference for the disadvantaged – not just in Singapore, but in the ASEAN region. Known as the ASEAN Social Impact Award, the initiative is a partnership with the Ee Peng Liang Memorial Fund, Asia Philanthropy Circle and Ashoka Innovators for the Public, and is inspired by the charitable initiatives of the late Dr Ee Peng Liang, Singapore’s Father of Charity. The award is open to candidates of all ages and nationalities who work with marginalised groups in ASEAN and have made an impact in this area for at least three years.
