Since August 2016, CIS secondary students have been involved in the Empty Bowls initiative. This initiative aims to raise money and awareness for those in Singapore who are unable to get enough food. In its 25th year of operation, the international Empty Bowls Project is an international grassroots movement dedicated to ending hunger globally.
As student leaders of the project, we have helped build and organise the club, and have worked with an interchanging number of student volunteers to create ceramic bowls. Over the course of the academic year, we have made over 40 ceramic bowls, with every student designing and creating their very own bowl - in the hopes of selling them to raise money for those without sufficient nutrition.
We will be selling these bowls at the Night of MADness on 7 June. Funds raised on the night will go to the Willing Hearts Organisation, a charity that shares Empty Bowl’s quest to end hunger. We selected Willing Hearts because of their impressive capacity: they serve 5,000 meals daily in over 40 locations across Singapore, all year-long.
We hope that the CIS community come forward and support the cause and our club. We look forward to seeing you at the Night of MADness!
