Mr Chng Hwee Hong may have just taken on the Chairmanship of the Singapore Corporation of Rehabilitative Enterprises (SCORE) Board on 1 September 2012, but he has been actively helping offenders to rehabilitate for several years.

The former Executive Director of Haw Par Corporation Limited first started as a Prison volunteer in 2005.

He joined the Singapore Corporation of Rehabilitative Enterprises (SCORE) Board as a member in 2009 and also led the SCORE Training Committee from April 2010.

Mr Chng played a pivotal role in enhancing programmes geared towards upgrading offenders’ vocational and employability skills.

In addition, Mr Chng helmed SCORE's Strategic Planning Sub-committee on Rehabilitation, which was part of SCORE’s Strategic Planning Committee which was set up in 2010 to map out SCORE’s key strategies for the next five to ten years.

He led a review of SCORE's programmes and services and proposed ways to enhance current efforts in reintegrating offenders into the workforce.

Mr Chng takes over the reins from Mr Kong Mun Kwong who had been SCORE’s Chairman for the past 16 years.

Mr Kong was instrumental in leading the development of education and training programmes for inmates.

He is one of the co-founders of the Community Action for the Rehabilitation of Ex-offenders (CARE Network), and has helped inspire the concept for the Yellow Ribbon Fund as well as the Yellow Ribbon Project.

Mr Kong joined SCORE as a Board Member in 1991 and was appointed Chairman of Board in 1996.

His outstanding contributions to SCORE and the community were recognised and honoured when he was awarded the 2012 Meritorious Service Medal.

“I would like to thank Mr Kong for his invaluable contributions, and SCORE will continue to work on and strengthen them,” said Mr Chng.

“Rehabilitation of ex-offenders is something close to my heart, and I look forward to working even more closely with the community in building bridges and changing lives.”
