Donations will be channelled directly to Yellow House’s account.
This rejuvenation is designed to empower and serve marginalised and vulnerable communities. Yellow House, to date, has served thousands of beneficiaries despite its space and operational constraints. The idea is to help Yellow House scale up, so that it can increase the number of these communities served.
Yellow House will continue to exist and operate, albeit in a much smaller scale. Without its space, key personnel will work remotely to serve their beneficiaries or work on planned projects, before going full-scale post the rejuvenation.
All extra proceeds beyond the stated goal in the fundraising exercise will be channelled to Yellow House’s benefit, for the organisation’s future programmes and operation costs.
No. YTL Foundation is merely acting as a supporting catalyst and benefactor for Yellow House in this rejuvenation project. All operational aspects will continue to be handled by Yellow House thereafter.
With a more optimised space, Yellow House will be able to scale up and carry out new projects that the old place had no carrying capacity for. Some of the planned projects in the pipeline are those that will generate a source of income as social business. The SE model will not only contribute to the beneficiaries but will allow Yellow House to sustain its business model.
Future plans in the pipeline
1. Co-working space as a revenue generation platform
Establishing a co-working space within the newly revamped Yellow House presents a promising revenue generation model while also fostering social impacts and sustainability.
2. Farming & Farm to Fork Initiative
Yellow House hopes that once the renovation is complete, it will be able to begin farming and table-to-fork initiatives as a revenue generation model. Through diversified revenue streams, community engagement, and social impacts, Yellow House can achieve financial sustainability while making a positive difference in food security, education, and local resilience.
The co working space, a farm to fork initiative, a repair café and not forgetting a welcoming safe space for those in need of mental health rejuvenation will enable Yellow House to continue its social mission whilst allowing it to financially sustain its operations.
YTL Foundation has roped in the assistance of the YTL Group’s construction division for Yellow House’s rejuvenation project. As the Design & Construction partner, YTL Construction will undertake the renovation of the Yellow House building, especially in providing design & construction expertise, network and manpower.
In line with YTL Foundation’s ethos and Yellow House’s own sustainability practices, YTL Construction has conceptualised the idea of incorporating bamboo as an innovative and sustainable building material into Yellow House’s renovation. This serves not only as an eco-friendly choice, but also to add a unique touch of natural beauty to this initiative.
