In support of the Giving Week movement and the giving season, we invite you to celebrate the spirit of giving by supporting our beneficiaries at APSN Student Care Centre.
Apart from offering activities such as indoor and outdoor games, art and craft, and music and dance, APSN Student Care Centre also reinforces the lessons our beneficiaries learnt in schools by providing guidance on Activities of Daily Living Skill and Community Living Skills. Over time, these skills will enable our students to become independent and self-reliant members of the society.
Your gift will go towards programme funding, teaching resources, engagement of external instructors, as well as the sponsorship of centre fees for families who are struggling to make ends meet.
Little acts when multiplied by millions make a world of difference. Together, let's build a #CityofGood - an inclusive Singapore that Cares!
