1991 for The Eurasian Association, Singapore, became known as the year of the Eurasian Awakening, when a younger group of Eurasians decided to take the lead to uplift the community. This was a turning point, with membership increasing and new programmes and activities introduced. Most were driven to rekindle that sense of belonging to the community, especially among the younger generation. Since 1994, the Association was accorded by the Government Self-Help status to act on behalf of the Eurasian community in Singapore. Today, their Social Hub is the Eurasian Community House, and this is where the Eurasian Association operates from. The House was officially opened by H.E. President S.R. Nathan on 5 July 2003.
