What does it take to bridge the past with the future?
The answer — one trishaw ride.
Temasek Foundation Moving Generations is a programme that connects the youth with seniors. Through the trishaw rides organised by Cycling Without Age Singapore and funded by Temasek Foundation, youth have opportunities to engage with seniors in an active setting, allowing them to have meaningful dialogues and learn about the past.
The Temasek Foundation Moving Generations programme have trishaw rides at various locations in Singapore, in partnership with eldercare centres. Each ride with the seniors will take about an hour with youth volunteers cycling through pre-identified routes in the Park Connector Network across Singapore. Wherever you are, there is always an opportunity to be part of this programme.

We welcome all youth aged 16 to 35 to join us in the Temasek Foundation Moving Generations programme.
