The spirit of the past
Decades ago, Singaporeans used to live in kampungs (villages), where it wasn’t uncommon for people to render help or support to their neighbours – it was almost like living with an extended family! This is what we refer to as the “kampung spirit”, having a strong sense of community and solidarity with our fellow Singaporeans.
From past to present
“Today, it is harder to see the same kind of kampung spirit among the new generation of Singaporean, and I strongly believe digitalisation is a key element in bringing it back. Thus, I’ve successfully launched the SGKampung app on the Apple App Store and Google Play stores, and I believe this app will be the means for Singaporeans to take baby steps in galvanising us towards bringing back the “kampung spirit”. - Khalili Bin Ismail, Creator, SGKampung
In the past, despite living under separate roofs, neighbours often interacted and socialised with one another, readily offering help, food, and support when needed. Today, one can easily live in isolation despite being in the same neighbourhood, by keeping to ourselves behind closed doors. Somehow, though we live in closer proximity to one another, this sense of togetherness has withered.
