Chou Sing Chu Foundation (CSCF) was set up in 2004 as a non-profit organisation to promote the Chinese culture, education and language in Singapore. We aim to create a platform for all to appreciate the beauty of Chinese language and culture.

Upholding this conviction, CSCF, as the official partner of the National Library Board’s “Singapore Memory Project”, has embarked on a series of “irememberBookstores” memory recollection campaigns to record and preserve the precious history of Singapore’s bookstore industry and its contribution towards education. Together, all the individual recollections come to form a collective memory of many Singaporeans. CSCF’s publication, THE BRAS BASAH bookstore journey, for instance, is a collection of stories behind the bookstores in the City of Books.

Get up close and personal with the Chinese culture and language, and follow us on our Facebook page to learn our latest news!
