Archive for December 8th, 2008

This workshop was held after gathering workshop signups from both Clean and Green Week Singapore and ARTy pARTy 2008. 33 people had indicated their interests, sadly, only 9 turned up. When we called them up individually, many said they had forgotten, but were still interested, thus we helped some sign up for the 20th December workshop.  Hopefully, there will be a better turnout on 20th December; we will definitely call all participants a day before the workshop from now on.

Following after the South East CDC, we received another invitation to set up a meeting with Ms Emily Tan. Reaching nearly an hour early outside the building, we again dedicated time to sit down and go through our presentation materials (this time sadly, unaccompanied by a pretty water fountain).

Our project presentation comprised a powerpoint, video and scrapbook. Similar concerns from our earlier meeting with SouthEast CDC were also raised regarding the importance of our project’s sustainability, especially since holding soap-making workshops would be one-off events for our participants.

Project Explanation

Project Explanation

A rather interesting proposal was posed by her, as we explained that the limited availability of used cooking oil, apart from our collections from hawker centres, was a project obstacle.  She proposed a used-cooking-oil-collection from interested households within our chosen region, with the help of Green Clubs from various schools.  This proposed programme, piloting in the year 2009, would hence be ideal in more directly reaching out to households in a certain region in Northwest Singapore (most probably Buona Vista). The oil collected by us/Green club members from interested households could be made into soap by the Green Clubs (who we would like to hold a workshop with). These soap could then be sold at various carnivals, with the revenue going to help the needy.

So far, this possibility has been met with much enthusiasm from our group. Hopefully, with the full approval of this new project direction from our teacher mentors, we would be able to undertake this new course of outreach with much success. As such, we look forward to future collaboration with North West CDC.
