Our Campaign Story

ends 17 Oct 2020, 11:59 PM

Be the guardian of our flight and let's teach everyone how to fly together! We are a YFC and NYC powered project, Project Guardian, a group of students from Hwa Chong Institution (College) and Raffles Institution (College), working with the Dyslexia Association of Singapore. Our goal is to tackle the stigma towards dyslexia and specific learning disabilities in order to create a more loving and homogeneous society where students can learn together joyfully. We hope to do so through various platforms: Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/project.guardian/?hl=en), Our Website (https://projectguardian20.wixsite.com/website) and also through the sales of our merchandise.

Our Mascot, Jr. Albert Einstein the Penguin, is the symbolization of the point of view of a person with dyslexia. Albert Einstein is an inspiration to our project, as he was first diagnosed with dyslexia but later on became one of the greatest successors in history! This further emphasizes our message that people with dyslexia are in fact no different from us and we should not treat them differently.

If you would like to support our project beyond financially, please contact us through our Instagram Page (@project.guardian).

About The Charity

Children suffering from dyslexia are often misunderstood, mislabeled and deprived of the proper attention and support. The DAS aims to provide the expertise to assess and help dyslexic students keep up with their peers in school. In Singapore, about 23,000 children in the age range of 6 to 16 require specialist intervention.Donors help reduce DAS' annual operating deficits and help fund dyslexic children who need financial assistance in overcoming their learning differences. Each donation received will go towards the most pressing need at the moment.With funding from donors, we will definitely be able to maximise our resources to reach out extensively to more dyslexic students.
