Our Campaign Story

ends 29 Jan 2022, 11:59 PM

Eighty years is a long time, but Canossaville Children and Community Services has stood the test of time as one of the oldest charities in Singapore.

Formerly a home for children, the charity has since started offering pre-school programmes and a student care catering to both mainstream children as well as children with hearing loss. The in-house Canossian Child Development Unit provides therapy support in areas such as speech and occupational therapy.

The charity is consistently expanding and supporting children and their families to help them reach their fullest potential. All these can only be made possible with kind support from donors like yourself.

Join me in doing my small part to raise funds to support their programmes and services for children from all race and faiths.

I hope to raise as much as possible to support the cause. Your small donation can make a world of difference to the children at Canossaville.

All donations to this campaign will go towards the Canossaville Digital Fund and be eligible for a 40% matching. This means that every dollar receives an additional 40 cents! Together we will raise a significant amount of donations.

100% of funds are channelled directly to Canossaville.

Thank you for donating to my appeal.

About Campaign

Technology plays a huge part in empowering our children 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 with an additional 40%!

Grant our children the gift of communication today!
