Social Innovation Park (SIP) Limited is an impartial, not for profit organization that aims to develop a self-reliant and thriving model for both aspiring and budding social entrepreneurs alike to bring positive transformation to society. In so doing, SIP aims to create a robust and dynamic social entrepreneurial community both locally and globally.
This year, the inaugural SIP Fellow Award was presented to four outstanding and high achieving individuals who are creating systemic change to the community. Tan Ye Peng, founder of CityCare, was amongst the four recipients of SIP Fellow Award 2008, together with Claire Chiang (Senior Vice President of Banyan Tree Holdings Limited), Veronica Colondam (Founder of Loving The Children’s Foundation) and Amit Wanchoo (Managing Director of Eaton Laboratories).
Tan founded CityCare, a non-profit organization birthed out of the vision of a group of professionals. Tan wants to see social transformation in Singapore by helping people to help people. His endeavor to build a city that cares was realized in 2007 when he founded this non-profit organization that seeks to bring about positive social transformation.
