By adopting a more holistic whole of nation approach, the YSHHB Strategic Plan 2020-2035 aspires to address current societal issues, particularly in the area of eradicating poverty and reducing unemployment through meaningful collaborative efforts.

Ultimately, the foundation’s new strategies aim to empower the communities that they serve, by employing more programmes that can imbue their target demographic with the necessary skills and knowledge that can better their socio-economic standing.

Four strategic goals have been outlined within the new strategic plan, each addressing an important quality of life aspect such as; bettering access to basic needs, organising entrepreneurial programmes to foster self-reliance, supporting students’ academic journeys and achieving financial stability for the foundation.

“We trust that (the new strategic plan) will become an example to create a more proactive and innovative society that will work tirelessly towards self-reliance, and does not rely on assistance alone”.
