Metro For Children Project Milestones

About Metro for Children Charity

Launched by Metro Pte Ltd in 2001, the Metro for Children charity is an annual fundraising initiative that aims to help children from needy communities in Asia. The money raised will help finance the participation of Singapore students and skilled volunteers in capacity-building, sharing of knowledge and carrying-out community service projects for the long term benefit and betterment of lives for these communities.

With the generous support and donations from its shoppers, corporate partners and Metro staff, this project has raised over S$1 million for Cambodia, Laos, India, Myanmar and Vietnam since its commencement. Metro for Children is a collaborative effort by Metro Pte Ltd, the Singapore International Foundation and Pioneer Junior College. Together, we identify areas for improvement and work towards building tangible growth and progress in the long run.

Metro for Children Project milestones are the result of our devoted involvement for communities in need.

Library of Hearts in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Now in our 11th year, our latest fundraising initiative provided the lives of underprivileged children with a safe learning environment and cultivation of their love for reading by building a library for Children's Shelter Foundation (CSF) in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Through education, we have allowed these children with traumatic life experiences to break out of the poverty cycle and work towards a brighter future.
