The Awesome Aim

To get every child in Singapore, and especially girls, to dream big, aim high, chart their own path, and live their lives at the fullest potential

How Will We Do This?

We bring to our school children the amazing stories of the Awesome Women of Singapore – the pioneering women who broke through boundaries and shattered glass ceilings. These are women who helped to shape Singapore, and they are inspirational role models for young Singaporeans.

Many of the women faced obstacles as they chased their dreams but they persisted, and they made their dreams come true. Their stories will inspire young Singaporeans to challenge whatever limits they may face, to dare to dream, and to want to make their dreams come true.
