The Self-Help Groups Centre (SHGs Centre) is a collaboration of the four Self-Help Groups: the Chinese Development Assistance Council (CDAC), Eurasian Association (EA), Singapore Indian Development Association (SINDA) and Yayasan MENDAKI (MENDAKI).
Besides providing a common space for different races to bond and integrate, the SHGs Centre also organises programmes to serve all ethnic groups, such as educational programmes for students and talks and workshops for parents. Each SHG also conducts programmes specifically to meet the needs of their communities.
In addition, the SHGs will also provide Activity Fee Subsidy (of up to 90%) to eligible students from low-income families to attend educational programmes conducted by the centre.
The Centre opened in 2018.
