Description

The Majurity Trust Official Launch
in conjunction with the Inaugural Majurity Conversations

The Majurity Trust Official Launch
MAJU means to advance, to move forward in the Malay language. It is a call to action in our national anthem, Majulah Singapura, for Singaporeans to progress together as a nation.

We are a philanthropic organisation that aims to help individuals and organisations across sectors to work together to build a thriving community in Singapore. We have been laying the foundation for over a year, and we're excited to share our dream and plans with you at our launch.

The Inaugural Majurity Conversations
Designed as a dialogue, this annual event will bring social impact leaders in Singapore together for a conversation about societal needs, ideas, and best practices both globally and locally.

Be part of our journey to build a thriving and sustainable
community for all in Singapore. Our goal cannot be achieved on our own.
We invite you to join us as we begin our journey.

Keynote Speakers

Scott Harrison - Founder of Charity: Water

Scott spent almost 10 years as a nightclub promoter in New York City before leaving to volunteer on a hospital ship off the coast of Liberia, West Africa as a volunteer photojournalist.

Returning home to New York City two years later, he founded the non- profit organization charity: water in 2006. Turning his full attention to the global water crisis and the world's 663 million people without clean water to drink, he created public installations and innovative online fundraising platforms to spread international awareness of the issue.

In twelve years, with the help of more than 1 million donors worldwide, charity: water has raised more than $320 million and funded nearly 30,000 water projects in 26 countries. When completed, those projects will provide over 8.5 million people with clean, safe drinking water.

Scott has been recognized on Fortune magazine’s list of 40 Under 40, Forbes’ Impact 30, and Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business, where he earned the #10 spot. He is currently a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader and author of the New York Times Bestselling book Thirst.

Scott lives in New York City with his wife Viktoria, son Jackson and daughter Emma.
