Filos’ 18th Anniversary – Empowering Bedok Back to list

Did you know that Filos’ 18th Anniversary falls on 7 July 2022? It has been a journey putting down roots in Bedok, listening to the needs on the ground and finding new ways to better assist and empower the community.

Over the years, we are grateful to have received the outpouring of support for Filos’ work from volunteers, donors and partner organisations. It is also heartening to see Filos’ outreach efforts amplified through our role as SG Cares Volunteer Centre @ Bedok since 2019.

One of our recent initiatives includes the expansion of Reading Room programme to other community partners in Bedok town! Filos’ Reading Room Programme is designed to strengthen the linguistics foundation of young children by fostering their interest in reading English books through storytelling.

Having seen the impact it has made on Filos’ beneficiaries, we partnered 7 Oaks Student Care this year to help recruit and train volunteers to roll out the programme for the centre. To ensure future sessions can be catered to the kids’ interests, the volunteers also took the time during the first session to get to know the children and find out their likes and dislikes!

If you are from a Social Service Agency in Bedok town that could benefit from our Reading Room programme, we welcome you to get in touch with us at to discuss collaboration opportunities!
