Strengthening Generations

At the beginning of 2021 CWA Singapore (CWAS) launched its first wellness and empowerment programme Strengthening Generations for volunteers aged 50 years and older.

The programme is funded by the Council of the Third Age who share CWAS interest in positive ageing and senior volunteerism.

As part of the programme, volunteers will:

  • Learn how to pilot an e-trishaw and provide trishaw rides to seniors and people with limited mobility
  • Receive training on longevity and wellness topics
  • Help build healthier communities as volunteers share what they learn with people they encounter on trishaw rides
  • Enrich the lives of the senior volunteers by allowing them to learn a new skill and through that serve others

Eligibility Requirements

  • 50 years or older
  • Singaporean or PR
  • An interest in cycling or a willingness to learn
  • An interest in impacting the lives of others

Volunteer Training

  • 3-hr trishaw handling training

Commitment Requirements

Opportunities to Connect

  • Volunteers Appreciation Event where we demonstrate our appreciation towards your dedication and a time of get-together with all other volunteers
  • Be connected with the rest of the volunteers through events, shared experiences and learn new skills together

Locations and Dates

CWAS have trishaws located across Singapore. Locations include Jurong Lake Gardens, Passion Wave Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay and upcoming new locations in 2024.
