Beyond conventional gatherings, this marked a notable step toward a cooperative and impactful era in Asian philanthropy, fostering deep connections and strategic partnerships.

Comprising over 30 philanthropy leaders, such as Mr. Ye from Yao Foundation, Mr. Liu from China Foundation for Rural Development, Ms. Shen from Guangdong Vipshop Philanthropic Foundation and more. The event served as a melting pot of ideas and innovations. Their collective wisdom and experiences enriched the discussions, shaping a forward-looking narrative for philanthropy in China.

Amid a series of engaging activities including social entrepreneurship showcases, site visits, workshops, and dialogues, the event distinguished itself as an ideal environment for mutual learning and the exploration of potential partnerships development. More importantly, the event provided a platform for participants to immerse themselves in Singapore’s philanthropy ecosystem and gain insights from a broader Asian perspective, paving the way and laying the groundwork for future collaborations, embodying the true spirit of a learning experience.
