Started in 2000, Paint-A-Home aims to improve the living conditions of our beneficiaries through the provision of a fresh coat of paint. In PAH, we believe that improving the aesthetic outlook of the beneficiary's’ home would improve their standard of living because it is not merely a house, but a home to them- a place where one lives and grows; a place with emotional ties. Through our event, we invite volunteers to join us in making a difference in the community. Over the years, our volunteers have reached out to BHID (2007), Jamiyah Children’s Home (2008), Thong Teck Home for Senior Citizens (2012) as well as rental flats in various regions around Singapore (2009, 2013-2019).

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, PAH XXI (2020) has been delayed to the end of 2020.
PAH XXII will be held following the normal schedule in AY20/21 Semester 2 should circumstances allow it.
The highlights of the previous iteration is included below!
This year, in our 20th iteration, we helped 27 units in Toa Payoh, Holland Village and Bukit Merah. Our beneficiaries were the elderly, low-income families, and physically disabled individuals living in one and two-room rental flats. NUS students and external volunteers joined us in painting these homes to give our beneficiaries a comfortable clean and refresh living environment.
