Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Jun 2023, 11:59 PM

Meet Sally (not her real name), a 10-year-old student enrolled in Canossaville Student Care.

Sally's father sadly passed on when she was 10 months old and her mother suffers from clinical depression, rendering her unable to care for Sally. As such she has been living with her grandparents and four cousins in a 2-room flat.

Sally struggles significantly in school and does not have anyone at home to help her with homework and revision. Once the teachers learnt about her situation, they immediately recommended her to attend our Canossaville Student Care, which can provide her with much-needed homework support and structure beyond school hours.

Sally's aging grandfather is the sole breadwinner and struggles financially to support a large family of 7. Thankfully, our Canossaville Education Fund helps to greatly subsidise her Student Care fees to help ease the burden on the family while still ensuring that Sally receives the help she needs.

Your donations to Canossaville Student Care Fund 2023 (#CSC23) will help provide access for Sally and others like her to attend Canossaville Student Care so that they can be empowered to realise their fullest potential.

About Campaign

Canossaville Student Care (CSC) provides after-school care for primary school aged children. Priority is given to those from vulnerable and challenging family backgrounds.

CSC is a working proof of inclusion in action where children with hearing loss, learn and play alongside their typically developing peers in a supervised environment. Children are provided academic support and homework supervision to ensure that students stay on track to meet their learning goals.

Your donations will be used to support the programs and activities organised by the student care, impacting the lives of over 220 enrolled children. This includes, but is not limited to, the purchase of essential resources and educational materials. This will enable us to continually provide a safe and nurturing after-school environment for learning and play, allowing our students to meet both their academic and developmental goals.

Thanks to the support from Tote Board, every dollar donated to this campaign will be matched with an additional 40% and will go towards supporting the Canossaville Student Care Fund 2023 (#CSC23).
