In support of Daughters Of Tomorrow

DATE // 25 August 2018, Saturday

VENUE // Crate and Barrel, orchardgateway@emerald

TIME // 12pm - 6pm


In Singapore, more than 25,000 women come from low-income families and are struggling to sustain a living. With the goal of empowering low-income women, Daughters Of Tomorrow enables the DOTpreneurs with skill-sets and resources to help each women achieve financial self-sufficiency for a better future.

As part of the company’s initiative to make a positive impact in the lives of women in Singapore, Crate and Barrel will be partnering with Daughters Of Tomorrow (DOT) to run a handicraft bazaar and an embroidery workshop. All proceeds from the workshop will be donated back to the charity organisation to fund moms with basic necessities such as transport and phone top-ups, as well as access to DOT’s employment-bridging support programmes. As women make up a huge part of the customer base at Crate and Barrel, having a bazaar at the store also serves as an additional platform to reach out to like-minded individuals that support the same cause.

About Daughters of Tomorrow

Registered as a charity under the Charities Act of Singapore, Daughters Of Tomorrow complements and supports existing training and workforce-related agencies by connecting volunteers and community resources to enable each woman on an individual level. By deep-diving into practical day-to-day constraints of these women, we offer hand-holding and individual coaching to help each woman reach regular and sustained employment.

Our beneficiaries are women aged 20 to 60 from low-income families (surviving on $200 to $500 per capita per month), mostly living in government-subsidized rental flats, and facing multiple stressors in their families. Since our incorporation in August 2014, we have impacted more than 100 women through our skills-training, job-bridging and support programmes. Through sustained employment, women in our employment bridging program regains confidence in themselves and gains a social support network that helps them through their difficult times.
