About Us

Helping Today.

Helping Tomorrow

Women Empowered Singapore is a charity organisation in Singapore which aims to help the low-income women and their families in Singapore. The idea was first planted in 2015 after the founder, Nilofar Iyer, returned from Pennsylvania, USA having witnessed many low income African-American families in dire straits.

Today, WE Singapore is one of Singapore’s foremost independent charities…



Observing that many of the requests for assistance are coming from women who are in dire circumstances to support their families, we have renamed our charity from HEN to Women Empowered Singapore.

Once you join us, you can volunteer in 3 ways

Do you find yourself with a lot of time in your hands and want to use the time meaningfully?

If you said a YES to that, why not help in our Committee? We meet once a month to brainstorm for ideas and discuss various social and women’s issues. Contact the President Nilofar Iyer at to volunteer as a committee member.

Do you only have a few hours to spare?

You could help us in Storytelling for children on Tuesday mornings, Elderly Befriending on Thursday mornings, ad hoc teambuilding workshops for empowering women or even for the packing of the food rations once a month. It requires only a few hours every month and no experience is necessary as all training will be provided.

If you are interested to volunteer on an ad hoc basis, contact us at

No time to spare at all?

Don’t worry! You can still play your part to help our community. You could donate to help provide for the dry food rations.
