WHY INTERNSHIP FOR YOUTH?

Helping youth by helping others

Youth at-risk often face multiple stressors in life, including difficulty transitioning successfully into adulthood.

By providing them with internship opportunities, they can improve their livelihood and on-the-job skills to succeed in life.

A career in early childhood can be especially rewarding, as it gives them the chance to make a positive difference to other children.

ECF Enrichment Sponsorship

Supporting the holistic development of children

Children from low-income families are encouraged to enrol for enrichment classes through this sponsorship programme and continue growing alongside their peers.

img
IMG

WHY ECF ENRICHMENT SPONSORSHIP?

A new way of learning for children

Apart from sparking new interests and stimulating the mind, enrichment classes such as art and music also help to develop creativity, cognitive and social skills.

However, not all families have the means to send their children for enrichment classes.

Children from low-income families need additional support to enrol in enrichment classes so that they can keep up with their peers.

WHO WE IMPACT

Enriching the lives of vulnerable children

The ECF Enrichment Sponsorship was introduced so that pre-school children from low-income families may join their peers in enrichment classes. We have helped a total of 377 vulnerable children benefit from the sponsorship programme.

CDA Top-Ups

Supporting the development and learning of children

In a partnership with the government, we disburse funds into the Child Development Accounts (CDAs) of vulnerable children to best support their early learning and overall development

img
IMG

WHY CDA TOP-UPS?

Lightening the costs of raising children

Pre-school plays a critical role in laying the foundation for children’s growth, yet some families impacted by economic uncertainty and job losses can’t afford pre-school, even with government aid.

By making an initial deposit into children’s CDAs, we help them lighten financial expenses such as pre-school fees and medical bills at Baby Bonus Approved Institutions.

It also enables children to benefit from the government’s dollar-for-dollar matching contribution, thereby doubling the number of financial aid available to them.

WHO WE IMPACT

Providing financial aid to vulnerable children

In 2020, we partnered with MOE and Community Foundation of Singapore (CFS) on a CDA Top-Up programme. We reached out to 14 times more beneficiaries than the previous year, benefiting about 1,300 pre-schoolers from low-income families.

This initiative is facilitated by the Uplifting Pupils in Life and Inspiring Families Taskforce (UPLIFT), an inter-agency taskforce. Eligible children whose families have a gross monthly household income of S$4,500 or less, will receive S$250 top-up to their CDAs each year for up to three years, as well as Additional Subsidy for their pre-school fees as of July 2020.

Helping children live a healthy life with diabetes

Together with KKH Health Fund, we provide holistic care to help under-resourced families with diabetic children live better lives.

WHY CARE FOR DIABETIC CHILDREN?

Children can lead an active life with diabetes

Caring for children with diabetes can be challenging, but connecting with the right people and community, as well as tools and resources, can make all the difference.

Diabetic children from vulnerable families don’t need to be limited by their conditions to have a fulfilling life. What they need is help with everyday diabetes care.
