About the Campaign

Gift-a-Dream invites donors to meaningfully contribute and participate in the students' learning journey. By contributing $200 for one primary student OR $250 for one secondary student a year, you provide your Beneficiary with his/her basic education needs such as access to supplementary educational materials and transport subsidies.

This assistance alleviates the stress a family faces and provides your Beneficiary with the opportunity to simply focus on their studies. Your support also provides them with continued access to enrichment programs.

We aim to match students from disadvantaged families to donors who are keen to join them on this journey. Gift-a-Dream to a student in need today!

Thank you for your contribution. Your support give will go a long way in nurturing future leaders for the nation.


Yayasan MENDAKI (Council for the Development of Singapore Malay/Muslim Community) is a pioneer Self-Help Group formed in 1982 dedicated to empower the community through excellence in education, in the context of a multi-racial and multi-religious Singapore. In 2002, MENDAKI streamlined its focus along four key areas of Education, Youth, Family and Employability.

MENDAKI helps to administer the Education Trust Fund, which is a community-driven fund that supports the education needs of children from disadvantaged Malay/Muslim families to ensure that every child gets the resources to succeed in school.

ETF subsidies spanned from Primary 1 to Secondary 5 students to tertiary students. To further support students in their educational pursuit, students who received ETF subsidies are offered academic support in a form of free tuition under the MENDAKI Tuition Scheme (MTS) or the Collaborative Tuition Programme (CTP). In 2017, ETF provides additional assistance to Malay Muslim students enrolled in Big Hearts Student Care Centre to defray the cost of monthly fee and programme fees. In 2019, more corporate donors, like Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce Foundation, SM Jaleel Foundation, Global Radiance Group and Mr Siddiqui, came on board to provide bursaries and scholarships.

With your help, we hope to raise $2 million yearly for this cause.
