Project We Are One (WAO) started off as a L.E.A.P. (Leadership. Engagement. Aspire. Potential) project under NUS Students’ Community Service Club (NUS CSC) from March 2019 to September 2019 and have since been converted into a Special Project. Project WAO aims to raise awareness for the migrant workers in Singapore among the NUS students through various initiatives. We also hope to provide opportunities for students to interact with migrant workers and hope that through their experiences, we can all work towards integrating migrant workers into our society such that we are one in unity.

Item-Based Donation Drive
Item-Based Donation Drives were held, collecting daily essentials and useful items for the beneficiaries. Such items include shampoo, body soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, shaver, shirt, shoes, water bottles, tote bags and suitcases.
Unfortunately, many plans had to be cancelled or adapted. However, the committee stay true to their aim and creatively conducted various online initiatives instead
