PD18: We empower!
Power is about helping others. PD18's mission is to empower 8 social causes through partnering Music for a Cause - an all-local Music Festival that generates awareness and fundraises.
Our Social Causes
Actions for Singapore Dogs
ASD was established to improve the welfare of stray and abandoned dogs in Singapore through rescuing and rehoming efforts, advocating sterilisation as a means of controlling the stray dog population and promoting responsible pet ownership. They hope to create greater awareness of the plight of the stray dog population in Singapore amongst youths through Music For A Cause.
Care Corner Counselling Centre started operations in 1987 as the first counselling centre in Singapore that focused on serving the Mandarin-speaking community. The Centre provides services such as Clinical Counselling and Hotline Counselling for individuals and families struggling with mental health challenges, marital distress, or family relationships. The Centre serves people of all races and religions, in both English and Mandarin.
Operation Broken Wing
Operation Broken Wing is a regional fitness charity movement originating in Singapore dedicated to improving the lives of the Forgotten Youth. Rise to the occasion and lift not just weights, but also the lives of others. We don't just raise money but also directly help many of the disengaged youth to do CrossFit, to keep engaged and be involved in a positive community. Our goal is to rally the fitness community together, to allow everyone and anyone to use our Fitness For A Cause. OBW will be looking to hold the first of it's kind, Singapore Team Rumble (STR) at MFAC18. This is going to be an inclusive, friendly CrossFit styled team fitness competition.
Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter
OSCAS is a charity and non-profit dog shelter in Pasir Ris that has been in existence since 2006. All the dogs in the shelter are mongrels rescued from the streets or from being culled. A total of more than 110 mongrels are currently housed in OSCAS and the efforts are sustained by public donations and volunteers. They hope to get youths to be more aware of the various ways they can give back to the community and to volunteer their time.
Our Singapore Reefs
Our Singapore Reefs was started by a group of SCUBA divers who love the ocean. It aims to protect Singapore's coral reefs by sharing the problems caused by marine debris. Through these, OSR seeks to show and preserve the many wonderful marine animals living within Singapore’s waters. It organises underwater cleanups regularly. Volunteer divers will help to remove the trash underwater to create a cleaner and healthier ocean for everyone to enjoy.
Samaritans of Singapore
SOS is the only suicide prevention centre in Singapore. It is a secular non-profit organization which provides 24-hour confidential emotional support to people who have difficulty coping during a crisis, who are thinking of suicide or affected by suicide. With an increasing suicide rate amongst youths in Singapore, SOS hopes to create awareness on the help available for these youths.
St. Andrew’s Autism Centre
Austism lasts a lifetime. At St. Andrew's Autism Centre (SAAC), we believe that no one should take that journey alone.
A non-profit, integrated centre for the education, training and care of persons with autism and their families, SAAC presently operates a special school for children and youths with moderate to severe autism aged seven to 18 years old, and a Day Activity Centre (DAC) for the adults, aged 19 years and beyond. SAAC vision is to enable persons with autism to lead dignified and meaningful lives. Its mission is to enrich the lives of people with autism and their families through quality education, training and care, distinguished by Christian love and compassion.

The activities organized by the three divisions range from helping youths to develop empathy and teach them the value of caring and serving the community around them through service learning, to steering at-risk youths away from crime by improving their family relationships and helping them stay in school through mentorship, casework, group-based activities and family engagement.
