There were no shortage of ‘favourite’ Aidha moments this year; rather with the brilliantly fast and furious year we’ve had, it’s probably hard to pick just one favourite! What was yours?
It seemed like Christmas had came early for Aidha this year: a record 166 graduates, three super confident and polished Business Plan finalists who wowed everyone, and a completely unexpected award to top it all!
What did these three events have in common? They all showcased our extraordinary and inspiring students!
August was a month of both celebrations and musings on where Singapore was headed in the next 50 years. Such thoughts were on our minds too. Sharing the SG50 mood, we asked our community what they loved about Singapore and you’ll see that the responses were endearing and funny at the same time.What lies for Aidha as we continue on the exciting path of growth we started on last year?
With effect 1 October 2015, course fees for Module 1 and Module 2 will be increased to $400 each (currently $350). A discounted rate of $650 will be offered to those who sign up for both modules at the start of the programme.
This small increase is the first increase in over three years. We have tried very hard to keep costs unchanged for as long as we can.
Nine years and counting today…Happy Birthday, Aidha!
As we close out our financial year (July 2014 – June 2015), we celebrate a year filled with many highs! The last 12 months saw a record 110 students graduating in November 2014, the launch of our inaugural Alumni Development Programme (ADP) in January 2015, being awarded the much coveted IPC (Institution of Public Character) status in April, exceeding our target of $100K in our signature Aidha Tour de Singapore Bike Ride fundraiser (translating to 150 student scholarships) in May, and our very first Big Pitch, which saw all seven Alumni finalists securing both donations and mentoring for a year to help start their small businesses.
What makes someone commit to a 100km cycle ride, at an ungodly pre-dawn hour, on a precious Sunday? What makes someone want to organise an after-work event that involves sending rounds of emails, when they already have to do that in the normal course of their everyday jobs? And why, if you already work 17 hours a day, would you spend another three hours of it baking more cookies for an event? Why drives anyone to part with their hard-won free time, cash, and energy to help people they don’t even know? Read More
