The New Initiative Grant (NIG) is seed money for startups or existing organisations with new initiatives that meet community needs in Singapore and are strong in volunteerism and/or philanthropy.
We are in the process of evaluating all the laws and regulations to setup a Global Non-profit organisation for IT Products/services to service Charity/Non profit Organisations and help the poor. The startup will be funded by donations/investments in trading futures/derivatives and run by volunteers.
Possible +schemes on the pipeline;
+Use of existing government schemes for VCF Info-Communications Technology (ICT) Grant, beyond what is sipulated ie we will match dollar for dollar, for ICT Core and Non Core services.
+A PC with Internet for every home ie for the poor who cannot afford one.
+Recycling used computers for Home Industries thru the Salvation Army.
*The idea behind it is to first help Charity/Non Profit Organisations with all their IT needs at the lowest costs possible using open source softwares and contributions from other hardware and solution vendors so that they can concentrate on providing core services and funds to help the poor and the needy, then directly providing the poor with access to IT. We need consultants, volunteers who are trained in IT, and other organisations who are able to help us with our objectives. Areas of concentration includes IT for Education, IT for Healthcare, IT for Logistics, IT for your Homes/Offices.
What we believe in ; “Access to a roof over their heads, a decent meal, proper healthcare, and IT for the poor. We will help Charities/NPOs achieve our same vision.”
