Mission

The TCKCF aims to provide support to the Christian missionary family or Christians who have lived cross-culturally and internationally, with a special focus on children who are raised in families with global experiences, also known as “Third Culture Kids” or TCKs.

We aim to bring awareness about the strengths and struggles of living a cross-cultural and mobile lifestyle. and organise activities that support TCKs adjust to life back in Singapore through helping them to integrate into the Singapore education system, work life, church life and Singapore culture. We promote and advocate the importance of member-care and overall care provided in churches, especially highlighting the psychosocial needs of TCK individuals and families facing global transitions. 

Goals 2021-2022

  • Awareness: To raise awareness of TCK/TCK family issues that accompany an internationally-mobile life of cross-cultural transitions, to churches, Christian organisations, mission organisations, missionaries, Christians, and to other relevant spaces (e.g. mental health profession). 

  • Bridge: To bring together expertise, experience, and questions, for collaborative and collective wisdom, to support the development and implementation of thoughtful, well-considered actions for TCKs and their families.

  • Support: To provide or collaborate with guest speakers/service providers to provide expertise, programs, or resources that inform and support TCKs and TCK-related issues.

Vision

We aspire to be a bridge that brings together expertise, experience, and research, to promote awareness and support for the needs of TCKs and their families, through training, connections, and consultation, to the Christian community in Singapore.
