International Women’s Day 2015

Ace Adventures Expedition again this year helped raised funds for our Project Pari to commemorate International Women’s Day on 8 March  2015 with their Mount Kilimanjaroo climb in Tanzania. They also raised awareness to our Project that led to donations on the SG Gives portal to Project Pari.

Esprit Singapore is another company with a heart. They chose Project Pari for their Corporate Social Responsibility project. They worked very hard within the tight deadline to obtain regulatory permits, make the collaterals and train their staff so that they can launch this fund raising stint at all their stores during the period running up to International Women’s Day.

Zonta Singapore is ever grateful for the wonderful kindness and support of these corporations who wish to raise the status of women in Singapore –and through Project Pari.

 


Music Appreciation Workshop for the Project Pari Girls at the LASALLE College of the Arts

30 May 2015

It was a bright and sunny morning as Zontians and volunteers arrived early at the LASALLE College of the Arts to prepare a hearty breakfast of cakes and milo for the Project Pari girls. Very soon, the girls and their teachers from the various schools started to stream in and enjoyed a quick breakfast before the music appreciation workshop.

Karen De Silva from the LASALLE College of the Arts had kindly volunteered to organize and conduct a music appreciation workshop for the girls. She got together her friends and classmates at LASALLE to bring the girls and Zontians through 3 hours of fun, laughter and melodies.

The workshop kicked off with Karen and her friends playing and singing the song “Price Tag” by Jessie J. The upbeat song got both the girls and Zontians up on their feet and everyone sang along. This was followed by a game quiz of pairing musicians to the music they wrote or sang. Our dynamic Zontian, Pek Lyn, was encouraging the girls by giving out lollipops for all correct answers.

Karen and her friends brought the girls through various aspects of music including history, beats, genres as well as code of conduct when attending a formal symphony orchestra through playing games and interacting actively with the girls. Karen and her friends also shared their own personal journeys in the pursuit of their passion in music with the girls.

Zonta Club of Singapore would like to say a big thank you to Karen and friends for organising this wonderful music appreciation workshop for the Project Pari girls.

Photography Workshop for the Project Pari Girls at SCWO

A photography workshop was held for interested Project Pari girls on the 4th of July. That morning it rained but the girls braved the rain and mostly turned up on time at the SCWO premises, armed with their cameras and smart phones, ready to learn more about taking nice pictures.

The workshop was facilitated by Mr Theofilus, a Canon EOS Ambassador who had kindly volunteered to share his knowledge and experience of photography with not only the Project Pari girls but interested Zontians wanting to know how to take that one amazing shot.

Theofilus shared with us the many different kinds of cameras available in the market, techniques when it comes to framing a shot and also how to look out for certain angles that would highlight the subject of your picture. Shortly after his talk, there was a suggestion raised to take a short ‘photo walk’ so everyone upped and we walked from SCWO to the MacDonalds at Bras Basah where we intended to have lunch.

Throughout the entire walk, Theofilus was showing everyone potential places we could frame a good shot and elaborated on how the shot could be taken. The girls had plenty of fun shooting away as we walked down alleyways and back streets, taking care not to be knocked down by passing cars. We even found a graffiti wall nearby where the popping colors provided a wonderful backdrop for instagram worthy pictures!

The Zonta Club of Singapore would like to thank Theofilus for giving his time to share with us the tips and tricks of taking a good photo. We look forward to the next instalment of this workshop!
