Our Campaign Story

ends 11 Dec 2022, 11:59 PM

Meet Michael (not his real name), a 10-year-old student enrolled in Canossaville Student Care (CSC).

Both his parents are blue-collared workers who work long hours to make ends meet, and by the time they reach home, have little to no time to guide Michael with his homework. Additionally, Michael has a language disorder which results in difficulties expressing himself and makes forming friendships a challenge, causing him to feel frustrated and sad.

At Canossaville Student Care, Michael is able to receive the essential support he needs for his studies. He also receives regular speech therapy to manage his language disorder and occupational therapy to assist in his organisational skills.

These therapeutic services offered by our Canossian Child Development Unit are at no additional costs to the families. We understand that such challenges put a strain not only on the children but on the whole family unit. We hope to transform their lives as Canossaville believes that every child deserves equal opportunities to succeed.

Your donations will enable us to positively impact the lives of children like Michael and his family. Thank you for being a Never-Ending Gift!

About Campaign

Technology plays a huge part in empowering all our children especially those with severe to profound hearing loss.

Children with hearing loss need more intense and intentional literacy instruction from the early years and throughout their development pathways for literacy acquisition.

Through iPad applications such as Proloquo2Go, our students who have difficulties with speech can finally find a voice to easily and more confidently communicate with others, especially with their families.

Other digital devices such as interactive smartboards allow our teachers to engage students especially those with hearing loss and other learning difficulties, more effectively and efficiently during lessons. It creates opportunities for students to practice collaboration and fosters closer interaction with the lesson materials. Multimedia content are also especially effective at keeping students engaged during class.

In response to our recurring needs in this area, the Canossaville Digital Fund is designated towards the purchase of digital equipment such as interactive smartboards and iPads, and their accompanying accessories and applications. Specific for our children with hearing loss, the fund will also be used for audio and equipment needs that support assessment and intervention.

Thanks to the support of Tote Board's enhanced fund-raising programme, all donations to this fund, will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

Grant our children the gift of communication today!
