Just like the handprints on this GoCar, most of us don’t know much about the refugee community living in our country. What do they like to do? Where do they live? How does their food taste like? Silenced, marginalised, we don’t see or hear much about them in our daily lives. That is reason enough for us to do more so they can better their lives. And at the end of the day, we are not that different. All we want is a stable and safe environment so we can live our lives peacefully until the end of our days.
Having made the arduous journey to a foreign country is distressing enough, but their journey doesn’t end on arrival. Next is to rebuild their lives in a new country, and that’s where education can help to achieve that goal. For this reason, it was also why we’ve partnered up with like-minded partners such as Robson 7, Picha Eats, Boozeats, MINNAMARINA, and Wowwwz at our recent GoLove event to raise funds for these children.
While our event was a success, it doesn’t mean we’re going to stop with our efforts. And you can contribute to this meaningful cause too!
How You Can Help:
From 6 September until 31 December, for every booking made on the “Education Empowers” GoCar at Robson 7, 10% from each booking will go towards these children’s education fund. So book this car today!
We will also be deploying more cars as such at various locations. To be the first to know, follow us on our social media:
