This is a publication project that will feature 50 kampongs in Singapore from the early days to present day. The publication will feature stories of individuals who have grown up in different kampongs and how they have proceeded to contribute to the society.


The stories hope to portray important values such as resilience, kampong (community) spirit, unity and harmony etc through the collection of personal stories by these key personalities. The publication will enable readers to relive the kampong experience and understand the struggles that our pioneers went through, thereby appreciating their contributions to Singapore’s development over the years. A book launch will be organised to drive public awareness and buzz.
