Non-profit organisations make beeline for Singapore, Business Times, 30 July 2014

In May 2014, Yale-NUS College launched its inaugural non-governmental organisation (NGO) bootcamp, where nearly a third of its students worked alongside practitioners from NGOs to learn how to make an impact on local and overseas communities. Laurence Lien, CEO of the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre, said that a bootcamp would help students deepen their contribution as volunteers, supporters and donors. Mr Wong also said a measurement of success would be for NGOs to see Singapore as effective in serving their regional causes and helping them come up with new partnerships and models in social financing. He added that over time, he hopes to see more NGOs having their global project managers based out of Singapore.
