Evangelism Explosion started as a US organization over 50 years ago. In Singapore, it is called Evangelism Equipping.

Evangelism Explosion (and Evangelism Equipping in Singapore) is a ministry that trains people how to share their faith in Christ and how to bring people from unbelief to belief. It utilizes a variety of components including prayer, actual on-the-job training where the experienced lead the inexperienced, and the principle of spiritual multiplication. More information can be found at EE site and EEM Singapore site.
