With the pandemic upending economies and societies, it is now more critical than ever for us to take urgent action to support those who may find themselves being displaced by new forces of technological and economic disruptions.
To ensure that no one is left behind, the DBS Foundation raised the bar in 2022 with the formation
of a new Community Impact chapter, to prepare our communities for the future through 2 focus
- Future-Ready Skills: Equipping the underserved with skills like financial & digital literacy and mental resilience, to face the future with confidence
- Food Security: Enabling communities to be more food secure and resilient, by tackling issues like food waste and food accessibility
With a firm belief that we can create more impact together, our vision is to spark collective action, together with our partners and DBS People of Purpose (our volunteer movement), to help build a better world for generations today and tomorrow.
