Elderly Learning Journey to URA

Wee Kar Kho Events

A bond of friendship was forged between 25 seniors from CDAC@ Yew Tee and 25 university students from Taiwan during an elderly learning journey on 4 September 2017.

As part of the Youth Ambassador Exchange Program, these youth ambassadors visited Singapore in early September for exchange and learning and they accompanied our seniors in a visit to the Singapore City Gallery at Urban Redevelopment Authority.

During the tour, the students learned about Singapore’s history and geography while the seniors rediscover the changes and progress undergone by Singapore in the past decades.

After the tour, the group had a good chat over cups of local coffee. Acting as local guides, the seniors explained to their new friends about Singapore’s coffee shop lingo and introduced to them Kaya and chili paste.
