Heartland Ambassador Programme for Seniors (HAPS)
Our Heartland Ambassador Programme for Seniors (HAPS) is an initiative where seniors help build friendship among residents and strengthen their sense of belonging for the neighbourhood through guided tours and the sharing of stories of the town.
Punggol Town Tours
Our Senior Heartland Ambassadors currently conduct Punggol Town Tours for students and the elderly. Since 2014, the Senior Heartland Ambassadors have conducted 18 of these tours, reaching out to a total of 1,211 participants. Participants are brought to interesting sites such as Treelodge @ Punggol and Punggol Waterway.
Treelodge @ Punggol
Participants are brought to interesting sites such as Treelodge@Punggol, Punggol Waterway, and Punggol Point War Memorial. Along the way, the Senior Heartland Ambassadors will also share their personal anecdotes about living in Singapore’s mature housing estates, as well as old memories about Punggol.
These tours were well-received by students and the elderly. The ambassadors themselves also enjoyed conducting the tours! Check out what the ambassadors and the participants say about their experiences.
