Mother and Child Project, a social enterprise run by the Singapore Anglican Community Services, is the first non-profit social enterprise of GET SINGAPORE. It was set up in 2005 by Anna Tsang, a US-trained fashion designer. Anna started to train women to sew and to make a range of products she designed. Many were single mothers or women recovering from psychiatric illnesses and their newly acquired skills became their main source of income.
MNCP provides home-based work sewing contract work for disadvantaged mothers so that they can become economically self-sufficient. It produces a wide range of products ranging from tissue pouches to patchwork quilts and hand-painted clothing. Designed by Anna and made by mostly single mothers, these original creations are constructed from unlikely fabrics and are skillfully transformed into wearable works of art. Each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind.
