Welcome to AIN Society
Ain Society is a voluntary welfare organisation registered with the Registrar of Society on 10th October 2000 and affiliated to the National Council of Social Service.
It was founded in 2000 by 12 activists who resided in Woodlands, the northern part of Singapore, mainly to serve the residents in that area. As it grows, its target group has widened not only to the residents in the north, but also island wide.

Football with a Heart
Singapore Pools together with the Singapore Sports Council (SSC) and Football Association Of Singapore (FAS) are putting together an executive football charity fund raiser named 'Football With A Heart' (FWAH) where business leaders and managers can network and raise funds for charities. Ain Society is fortunate to have been chosen as one of its nine beneficiaries. 40 teams will be deciding the allocation of donation to selected beneficiaries through a charity pitch. Beneficiaries will screen their corporate videos during a Charity Pitch event to be held in July 2013 at Livewire (Marina Bay Sands), and also mingle with the corporate guests to share their cause.

President’s Challenge was established by the 6th President of Singapore, Mr S R Nathan in 2000.

Thank You, Woh Hup Trust!
Ain Society has been extensively raising funds for the past 2 years for the setting up of Serenity Social Service Centre which will be catering to our Cancer Clients.On 1st December 2012, Ain Society was honored to receive a benevolent donation of $70,000 from Woh Hup Trust in support of our efforts in setting up the Serenity Social Service Centre.
Ain Society’s new centre, named Serenity Social Service Centre, has been receiving overwhelming response from the public since it was opened on 1st April 2013. In the first month of operation, the number of clients who are suffering from cancer and chronic illnesses, has increased by 10% to 75 clients.
The Serenity SSC at Blk 2 Eunos Crescent is the first centre of its kind managed by a Malay/Muslim organization dedicated for clients suffering from cancer and chronic illnesses. The centre provides counseling services consisting of individual counseling, support group for clients and support group for caregivers. Clients also receive other types of support such as financial assistance and food ration assistance.
The centre also opens its doors to the elderly, especially those from low-income families living in the Eunos Crescent area. Since its operation on 1st April 2013, the centre has attracted about 200 old folks who came for assistance and to participate in activities organized at the centre.
About $60,000 per month is needed by Ain Society to manage the centre. To financially support the activities and services provided at the centre, a charity concert with Mediacorp Suria will be aired on 31st April 2013. Follow us in Twitter using this hashtag #ProjekKasih. This is Ain Society’s first collaboration with Mediacorp Suria in organizing a charity concert.

ESM Goh Chok Tong: Compassionate Meritrocracy
Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong said Singapore should try to improve its system of meritocracy to ensure that it continues to benefit society, and this means showing compassion, even while meritocracy is at work.

Our artsploration programme had commenced on 31st March 2012 for our Clubkids Children as well as their siblings. The 2-year art therapy programme was funded by our most generous funder, Nippon Paint Singapore. Its aim was to tap on the childrens’ most artistic abilities, to encourage self-expressions and to relieve these children of their emotional issues particularly for the children diagnosed with cancer. All of them seem pleased with the initial lesson condiucted by our art teacher and therapist, and through chit-chats with the kids, we could hear that they are pretty excited to attend upcoming lessons!
