I am a People’s Association Personal Trainer with SkillsFuture courses to my name.
Attending St Joseph’s Institution for my secondary school education, I was taught “To be men for others” and embarking my financial services career since yr2001, the budget constrained have always held a special place in my heart.
Government policies change with changing needs of the residents and it can sometimes be very hard to keep track as well as stay updated. In the days of old, the information was hardly digestible by the man on the street too. But that has set to changed ever since AKK came along.
Lifting from the website:
To communicate government policies to the public in a simple and accessible way, PA introduced the Ask Kopi Kakis (AKK) initiative in all Community Centres/Clubs (CCs). Residents can learn more about key government policies and schemes that they can benefit from by visiting any of the Ask Kopi Kakis kiosks conveniently located at 108 CCs island wide. Mobile kiosks are also deployed at community events to engage residents in understanding government policies while participating in activities in their neighbourhood.
The Ask Kopi Kakis booklets, a set of three easy-to-read policy booklets, contain bite-sized details on a wide range of topics ranging from healthcare subsidies and housing grants, to transport and education schemes that are of interest to residents at various stages of their lives.
Download the PDFs to save paper, they come in 4 main languages too.
