About the Springboard Programme
The Youth SDG innovation platform for Asia-Pacific
SELF was founded in Singapore in 2021 by Ong Wei Ching.
SELF is a ground-up initiative with the aim to reduce inequalities faced by low-income Singaporean women by bridging opportunities for them to sustain their employability and achieve progressive income growth. We take a user-driven approach to develop innovations that meet some of low-income women’s most pressing needs.
SELF aims to harness the power of the community to create a conducive environment for women to be sustainably employed. This includes a resource portal for women to access resources tailored to their needs, and a kinship network of interdependent women supporting one another and their families.
Focusing primarily on SDG
"The Youth Co:Lab community is definitely my key takeaway. There are so many inspiring social entrepreneurs doing amazing work in the region. It constantly fuels my drive to want to bring change to society."
