Dear Friends of Soristic

Hope you are safe and healthy in the current public health crisis. This extraordinary time has been even more trying for our vulnerable communities. Let’s rally and extend support for them as much as we can.

2019 – Meanwhile, we are happy to share with you a summary of our activities in 2019. Thank you very much for your support throughout the year! 

Basic Needs Gaps – Soristic is organising a session on this in Q2, 2020 (subject to change depending on the public health situation). We hope to share with you some gaps we have identified in vulnerable communities in Singapore that you can potentially help. Keep a look out for the event!

The State of Enterprises with Social/Environmental Impact in Singapore – Soristic is commissioned by British Council to conduct this study. This in partnership with raiSE and supported by HSBC and the UNESCAP. The global research project has already been conducted in over 20 countries. The Singapore segment will extend the knowledge base and facilitate deeper comparison for better policy making. It will also track the changes to the sector in Singapore, and advise the policy makers on programmes and initiatives to better respond to gaps and opportunities.

Surveys – As part of this study, we are running two surveys. If you are an enterprise with social/environmental impact, or a finance institution investing in such enterprises, please help us do the surveys to enable ecosystem supporters to come up with more targeted and relevant policies/support schemes to better meet your needs!
