(ii) Information on the Special Projects 

1. Ethelontêr XVI

Ethelontêr means "Spirit of Volunteerism" in Greek and hopes to introduce CSC and its many volunteering platforms to freshmen and build an enthusiastic youth volunteering community. In addition, Ethelontêr also hopes to be a platform for like-minded youths to meet one another and build lasting friendships.
 

The project worked with beneficiaries from the children/youth, intellectual disabilities and elderly/terminally ill sectors in Ethelontêr XIV and Ethelontêr XV. In addition, you would get the opportunity to explore beyond these sectors. Ethelontêr XV leveraged on the camp setting to expose freshmen to the notion of mental health and its associated stigma.
 

Preparations will start in December 2018 and the main phases will occur in July 2019.

For general information on Ethelontêr, please visit http://www.nus-csc.org/main/ethelonter.html and https://www.facebook.com/nuscsc.ethelonter

2. Paint-A-Home XX 

Paint-A-Home aims to improve the living environment of our beneficiaries by giving their homes a fresh coat of paint, and at the same time providing volunteers with the opportunity to
make a difference in our community. 

 

The project worked with elderly from King George’s Ave Seniors Activity Centre, THK Seniors Activity Centre and patients under the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) in PAH XVIII. PAH XIX
worked with THK Senior Activity Centre @ Macpherson and Care Corner Senior Activity Centre @ Toa Payoh.

3. Project C.A.N

Project C.A.N. aims to collect canned food and dried rations from the community and redistribute them to the less privileged. Through its activities, Project C.A.N. hopes to encourage the
spirit of giving back to the community, while cultivating compassion and creating awareness for the less privileged.

Project CAN XIV had contributed to beneficiaries under the Public Assistance/Public Rental Scheme in 2017; and Project CAN XV continued this effort in 2018, concentrating on the less
fortunate in the MacPherson region.

Preparations will start in January 2019 and the main phases will occur in June-July 2019.
