Leong Sin Nam Football Trophy


A rare picture of Leong Sin Nam (seated 3rd from left) with the football team. LSN was a keen sportsman but not a footballer. Date of picture unknown.

I am currently creating the Life and Times of Leong Sin Nam Exhibition at 15 Clarke St.  These photos were originally small in size and need to be made clearer using Photoshop.

ABCD

Assets based community development. What is right with you? What gifts has God given to you that you can use to improve your life and that of your neighbour? How can the individuals and organisation in your community work together to improve your community? Once the assets have been identified the next question is about needs. How can you use your assets to address those needs and to solve those problems.

Relief, rehabilitation and development

Ensure participation of the affected population in the assessment, design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of the assistance programme. Conduct an initial assessment to provide an understanding of the disaster situation and to determine the nature of the response. Respond when needs of an affected population are unmet by local people or organisation due to their inability or unwillingness to help. Target assistance based on vulnerability and need and provide it equitably and impartially. Aid workers must possess appropriate qualification, attitudes, and experience to plan and effectively implement appropriate assistance programmes.
