They were keen to assist children from underprivileged backgrounds to get an opportunity for exposure to the arts. The idea was to assist needy youth by providing them relevant training and education in the field.
A movement named ChildAid Asia was born, starting in Singapore in 2005 where the first fundraising concert was held. ChildAid Singapore has since grown to become a major event supported by a number of huge corporate sponsors.
