1. Overview and Objectives

Avelife Foundation is a Volunteer Welfare Organization conceived in May 2009 and set up in
November 2009 by Mr Zech Goh and Mr Mark Cheng.

It comprises of an advisory Board, a Board of Directors, a management team and a group of


passionate volunteers whose vision is to create avenues to improve the quality of lives of the
socially disadvantaged by matching support and funding for Public Health Programmes and

We also aspire to impart green values to the community through service learning. ‘Ave’ means
‘salute’ in Latin and ‘Avelife’ means saluting life!

1.4 Our Logo

The Avelife logo spells out the name of our organization, with green, white and blue concentric
circles shaping the Avelife initial letter “a”.

Blue is used to symbolize water, and therefore “life”. Green embodies our commitment to the
environment. Meanwhile, the white ring between the blue and green circles represents the “gap”,
within the community, between the promotion of public health (“life”) and protecting the
environment. With this combination of colors, the Avelife logo aims to convey our
organization’s plans to use sustainable resources to bridge the gap for the betterment of both
people’s lives and the environment.

The green Initial letter “a” stands out from the rest, represents Avelife’s vision of being an
advocator of Green Innovation for Active learners and Corporate leaders. A variety of programs
will be implemented which will incorporate Green and Resource Management Values and
encourage the birth of Green Innovation ideas.

At Avelife, we firmly believe that we must first start by reaching out and working towards
improving the health and quality of life of our communities in order to effectively protect the
environment.

Thus we hope to increase awareness of Green Innovation through service learning using the Arts
as a medium and leading various Green related events and activities.
