We are a group of seven students who want to give back to society by helping children that come from difficult backgrounds. As such, we decided to partner with Canossaville Children and Community Services, an organisation focused on helping children with issues at home by providing them with emotional and psychological support using promotional and preventive approaches.
There are children in Singapore who are facing difficult family situations. You can help them by donating to the funding for intervention therapy programmes organised for them in Canossaville Children. 8-10 therapy sessions can cost from 100 dollars all the way to 300 for each individual child, so every cent donated counts. With the funding, they will be able to go through intervention therapy such as animal-assisted therapy, art therapy and play therapy which will help them to diminish anxiety and depression, feel calmer and develop the confidence to express bottled emotions. These are just some of the many benefits of intervention therapy.
All these things will allow the children of Canossaville Children and Community Services to develop new found confidence and express themselves outwardly. Donate today to contribute to a child's wellbeing!

The Canossian Sisters, in response to the rapidly changing social landscapes, have embarked on an inclusive preschool and student care centre. The project aims to cater to mainstream and mild to high functioning special needs children, giving priority to the most needy.
A Child Development Unit (CDU) is also being set up to meet the special needs of the children and is scheduled to operate in 2008. Located within the Canossian Eduplex in the MacPherson/Circuit Road area, Canossaville reaches out and lends support to preschool children and students in the neighbourhood.
Canossaville Children & Community Services is an approved Institute of Public Character (IPC) and is authorised to receive tax-deductible donations.
