Alone, we can only do so little, but together we can achieve so much more. Help us to spread the word to all Pasir Ris residents as Ocean Purpose Project has been serving our beach town as an ocean community sustainability platform sine 2020 when we started from zero. Let's get the gotong- royong spirit going! We would sincerely appreciate it if you or your platform publicizes this event and we would be glad to be featured in any promotions and interviews.
