Rebuilding Lives

FY 2014-2015

Yellow Ribbon Fund Temasek Cares Star Award
Helping ex-offenders to raise their employability through further studies
Partner: The Yellow Ribbon Fund

The Yellow Ribbon Fund Temasek Cares Star Award provides financial assistance to needy ex-offenders by helping them to upgrade themselves and achieve self-sufficiency through further studies and eventually, gainful employment.

Students awarded with the bursary would also be guided and helped in their preparation to work with potential employers. Through this initiative, the ex-offenders are given a new lease of life and reintegrate smoothly into society and their family. 20 students were supported through this award in the last financial year.



FY 2012-2013

The Yellow Ribbon Fund Temasek Cares STAR Award
Helping ex-offenders to gain employment and become self-sufficient
Partner: The Yellow Ribbon Fund

The Yellow Ribbon Fund - Temasek Cares STAR Award helps ex-offenders rebuild their lives. The programme offers bursaries to financially-needy ex-offenders to help them with the cost of skills and vocational training. This training will help them to gain new skills so that they can obtain employment and be self-sufficient, both of which are key milestones in their efforts to reintegrate into society. Temasek Cares is reaffirming its support for ex-offenders with a new grant to support 15 STAR awards for another year.



FY 2010-2011


Temasek Cares and the Yellow Ribbon Fund have set up the STAR Award to help ex-offenders rebuild their lives. The programme offers bursaries to financially-needy ex-offenders to help them with the cost of skills and vocational training. This training will help them to gain up-to-date and employable skills so that they can obtain employment and be self-sufficient, both of which are key milestones in their journey to successfully reintegrate into society.

The STAR Award helps ex-offenders to reach their fullest potential. Ex-offenders are often unable to upgrade themselves upon their release from prison due to time and cost constraints. In order to provide for themselves and their families, they often have to take on low-skills jobs with limited prospects. By providing bursaries to help with educational and living expenses, Temasek Cares is helping these ex-offenders to increase their employment potential so that they can build a better future for themselves and their families.
