Singapore Women¡¦s Everest Team
Since its formation in July 2004, the Singapore Women¡¦s Everest Team (SWET) has taken community outreach as one of its guiding objectives. SWET not only aims to become Singapore¡¦s very first team of female mountaineers to summit the world¡¦s highest peak¡XMount Everest, SWET also strives to become positive role models for today¡¦s youth.
Living up to the team motto to ¡§Redefine the Impossible¡¨, SWET is a premier example of how six ordinary Singaporeans can share a seemingly impossible goal, but with enough courage to dream and fortitude to persevere, be on the road to success.
Since 2004, SWET has been sharing its inspirational journey in talks to audiences all across the nation, from youths in secondary schools to junior colleges and tertiary institutions. SWET¡¦s message to our youth has always been simple, but resonates with motive: ¡§Climb Your Own Everest¡¨.
SWET believes that Everest signifies the pinnacle of success and as such, each and every individual has his or her own ¡§Everest¡¨ to climb. For SWET, ¡§Everest¡¨ is a literal mountain, but to today¡¦s youth, ¡§Everest¡¨ can stand as a metaphor for each individual¡¦s goal, be it to achieve top grades in the next exam, to break a sports record, to run a marathon or as a guiding light to remind one to continuously aim higher for self-improvement.
SWET Introduces ¡§Aspiring Mountaineers¡¦ Programme¡¨
This year, to further benefit our youth with the experience of SWET¡¦s four-year journey of leadership and self-discovery on the climb to the summit of Mount Everest, SWET launches the Aspiring Mountaineers¡¦ Programme (AMP).
AMP is a holistic student confidence development programme that aims to empower our youth to dare to dream and to persevere in their ambitions. Throughout the various activities in AMP, the overarching themes will be that of:
AMP is catered for youth between the ages of 15 and 21. All activities of AMP will be conducted by members of SWET and by the specially formed AMP Support Crew where additional manpower is required.
The complete AMP comprises of 3 levels: ¡§Base Camp¡¨, ¡§High Camp¡¨ and the finale ¡§Summit¡¨ segment. The 3 levels of the AMP are synonymous with the various checkpoints on Mount Everest that SWET will meet up on the actual climb to the summit.
