Poverty Alleviation
This article features :

Since its establishment in 2018, Ferris Wheel Organisation (FWO) has been operating as a dedicated non-profit, charity organisation, officially registered with the Registrar of Societies under the registration number PPM0031029052018. Our primary objective is to touch and improve lives through sustainable methods, where we want to uplift and support the welfare of marginalised and underprivileged communities through sustainable and impactful methods.

We are committed to making a positive and lasting difference in the lives of others through sustainable charity work. Since our inception, we have successfully executed various campaigns and projects that have brought significant benefits to our local communities. Through our collective efforts, we are proud to have positively impacted and served the lives of at least 10,000 individuals.

To achieve our mission of creating a sustainable charity impact, we have two main campaigns that play a crucial role:

The Yellow Bag Movement

The Yellow Bag Movement is where we provide grocery care packs to those in need, containing essential food items like rice, flour, 3-in-1 drinks, and hygiene products. The generous contributions from the community enable us to create these care packs and distribute them to individuals and families who require immediate assistance.

The strength and impact of the Yellow Bag Movement lie in the generous contributions and support from individuals, businesses, and organisations within the community. Their support plays an important role in making this initiative possible and allows us to extend a helping hand to those who are facing difficult circumstances.

The Yellow Bag Movement is more than just providing grocery care packs; it represents hope, solidarity, and a commitment to making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

The Ferris Green Project

Ferris Green Project is the first urban vertical farm for charity using aquaponics technology. The produce grown on the farm will be sold to the community to provide healthy food options to individuals and families where the proceeds from the harvest will then be used to support those in need by providing them with basic grocery necessities. Additionally, the farm will serve to provide employment opportunities for single mothers, educational resources, providing workshops and classes on sustainable agriculture practices and cultivating healthy community works.

What sets the Ferris Green Project apart is its innovative approach to giving back. Instead of relying solely on external donations, the farm generates its own revenue through produce sales. These proceeds are then channelled back into the community to support those facing economic challenges by providing them with essential grocery necessities (Yellow Bag Movement).This circulatory system ensures a continuous and sustainable cycle of giving and support, creating a lasting impact on the lives of those in need.

Additionally, we actively organise various activities to further support the FerrisGreen Project. These activities encompass workshops and charity movie events, aiming to educate and engage the community. Through this comprehensive approach, we strive to make a meaningful and continuous difference in the lives of the underprivileged.

Other Supporting Campaigns in FWO

Birthday Pledge

Our "Birthday Pledge'' campaign encourages individuals to celebrate their birthdays by requesting their friends and families to donate instead of giving gifts. These contributions support our charitable projects, making a meaningful impact on the lives of the underprivileged. By turning personal milestones into opportunities for giving. We celebrate not only the joy of birthdays but also the joy of giving. It serves as a reminder that every person has the capacity to make a meaningful impact in others lives.
