INTRODUCTION

WUJ Kampong Clean-Up is a monthly community outreach initiative by Wan's Ubin Journal started in January 2019 where volunteers and participants can assist our residents by cleaning their houses, courtyards and gardens. They may even get a chance to learn more about Ubin's heritage from our residents as well!

The clean-up project takes place every last Saturday of the month.

Curious as to how a typical WUJ Kampong Clean-Up might be like? Read up on the posts below!

WUJ Kampong Clean-Up takes a break for Jun '19!

ABOUT

While it is true that there are quite a number of volunteer groups that are already actively working on cleaning up Pulau Ubin, WUJ Kampong Clean-Up stands out from the others with the simple fact that our initiative is the first of its kind that focuses on helping our Ubin residents and community.

Apart from just being a community involvement project, WUJ Kampong Clean-Up wishes to also promote Pulau Ubin's heritage, culture and traditions by encouraging our participants to strike casual and meaningful conversations with our residents during the clean-up. They may get to know a lot more about the stories and significance of the places that they are cleaning-up, which in turn encourages our participants to carry out the clean-up projects with a renewed sense of purpose, too!

As a descendant of the Pulau Ubin community, I can say sincerely that your involvement in WUJ Kampong Clean-Up brings a lot of joy and happiness to our residents here as it helps them to know that they are remembered, loved and cherished. Your assistance in helping them to maintain the beauty of their kampong means the world to them, and I hope through this initiative you will get to feel the wonders of the true kampong spirit and to bring it along with you, everywhere you go.
