Project Step To Change
Each year, Ambassadors have been organising a big-scale fundraising project to help the underprivileged in our society. Quick to adapt to changes this year, 12 Ambassadors stepped out of their comfort zone and curated the project Step To Change in aid of MWS Bethany Nursing Home remodelling care project, sponsored by the PSP in kind and in cash. In response to the COVID-19 situation, two project arms ACShop and ACS Challenge were created. ACShop, an online market sells COVID-19 useful items such as handmade soaps, face masks, face shields and T-shirts to raise awareness. ACS Challenge encourages students to showcase their talent by making a video and collecting donations using their video. The process was filled with obstacles. Our students could not widely publicise the event during school assemblies as usual and had to use alternatives such as Instagram in order to make the project work.

The student volunteers were engaged and eager to learn about the process of blood donating, so as to attain sufficient knowledge and experience to plan a blood donation drive independently in the future. One bag of blood can save the lives of three patients and every day, large amounts of blood are needed in hospitals for transfusions.
