WHAT WE DO
It is created by Mark Chang, founder and CEO of JobStreet. The key concept that Mark, through the Little Rain Children Trust, hopes to promote is "Inspiring the next generation to do good, to do well". Mark believes that there are many people caught in impoverished and negative spiral situations that can be turned positive when the right forces, resources and guidance intervene. Through formal and informal education, and financial assistance for educational purposes, the Trust hopes to provide help to those in need, and inspire the young to strive hard and achieve success while doing good and giving back to society.
We support formal and informal educational initiatives for children in need.
ENTREPRENEURSHIP FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
We provide small financial assistance to underprivileged entrepreneurs.
TO DO GOOD
We hope to inspire the young to strive hard and achieve success while doing good and giving back to the society.
