In a heartwarming ceremony on the 22nd of October 2023, we celebrated our Module 2 and 3 graduates who devoted themselves to a journey of self-empowerment through financial education. Their journey, marked by determination and resilience, reflects the power of education and the pursuit of better opportunities. We cheered for their accomplishments, embraced their unwavering commitment, and recognised the profound impact they can make in their lives and those of their loved ones.

Congratulations to these inspiring women, whose graduation marks the beginning of a new chapter filled with hope and potential.

We’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks to our distinguished guests, mentors, employers, volunteers, students, alumni and wider Aidha community for making this event such a special one.

We were thrilled to welcome Aidha alumna, Retno Nawangsih, to the stage to co-emcee alongside returning emcee, Ms Ting Claravall; who dazzled the crowd with their dynamic and spirited enthusiasm; that set the tone for the rest of the afternoon!

Our ceremony began with a warm and inspirational welcome address from Aidha CEO, Ms Jacqueline Loh, who set the stage for the momentous day ahead. Ms Niky Sakhrani, this year’s Keynote Speaker and longtime Aidha supporter, left us inspired and empowered with her insightful speech!

We also heard from our four Business and Personal Financial Plan finalists who did a stellar job presenting their winning plans!
