Dear Friends,


“Raising Today’s Children To Be Tomorrow’s Environmental Advocates”

As we are approaching the end of another eventful year, it is important to reflect and take stock of what is to come, for instance whether we have done enough to address the issue of littering and the overall efforts to fight climate change? At Waterways Watch society it is our desire to see that more can be done to spread the message of keeping our waters and waterways clean and safe and eradicating litter. Our programmes have always been focussing in these areas and never lost sight of the problem we face. In this regard, it is heartening to see many parents coming for our programmes with their young ones especially during the school holidays. Thank you parents for taking the steps and leading the way for your children to be Tomorrow’s Environmental Advocates!

Waterways Watch society would like to see more schools and including the pre-schools to be more forthcoming to get the children out in the open to see and experience first-hand in tackling the environmental issues. Teaching them about the environment from an early age can help ensure they will take care of our planet for decades to come.

On this note, the CEO and staff of Waterways Watch society would like to thank all our members, volunteers, our clients, our corporate and individual sponsors and donors for your ardent support over the years without which our programmes and activities would not have been possible.

We would like to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

In summary, the following activities were done for this week: 

  1. We conducted 8 CSR programmes which were attended by 206 participants and they collected a total of 249 kg of litter.  
  2. We conducted a 1-Star Kayaking Award session at Kallang for our facilitators on Saturday. 9 facilitators participated with 4 members assisting in the conduct of the session.
  3. This week a total of 79 members were involved for CSR/VIA programmes, talk, patrols, administration, housekeeping duties and training and, the total trash collected = 273 kg.
