CDAC offers programmes and assistance schemes to help the less privileged in the community to maximise their potential and strive for social mobility through self-help and mutual support.

Programmes/Activities

In 2019, CDAC reached out to 17,000 lower-income households through educational and development programmes, bursary and subsidy schemes for needy students, fulfilling ageing activities for seniors and financial assistance and employment support for families. Please refer to our Annual Report 2019 for more information on CDAC programmes and achievements.

In 2020, CDAC will continue to support students and families through broad-based programmes to help them strive for upward social mobility. At the same time, CDAC will also focus on deepening help for the more vulnerable families by providing holistic support to help them.

CDAC will continue to enhance its outreach and engagement efforts to uplift more families through more collaborative efforts with network partners and volunteers.
