Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jan 2022, 11:59 PM

The new year brings about new hope and aspirations. It also marks the start of a new academic year.

At Canossaville, we believe that the heart of education is the education of the heart. Regardless of a child's family background, we believe that all should have access to a quality education. Canossaville prioritises all our programmes and services for the poor.

Since our founding 80 years ago, we have strived to provide the best for the children and their families under our care. This cannot be achieved without the kind support from donors like yourself.

Our needs have evolved tremendously over the years. With the COVID-19 global pandemic, the realities of our lack of resources in key areas are made much more obvious. Technology has been a key enabler to ensure our programmes and services run seamlessly in the face of the uncertainties.

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%!

Thank you for helping to Give the Best Start for our Children this 2022!

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!
