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!

Formerly known as Canossaville Children's Home, the residential home was closed earlier this year to make way for an inclusive preschool and student care centre to cater to mainstream and special needs children, giving priority to the most needy. A Child Development Unit (CDU) comprising a team of speech therapists, education psychologists and social workers to meet the specialised needs of the children is also being set up, and is scheduled to be operational in 2018.
In preparation for our new role as Canossaville Children & Community Services, developments are ongoing. This includes the designing of a special curriculum to meet the unique needs of Canossaville, with a distinctive focus on Formation of the Heart, the key foundation of a Canossian education.
Canossaville Children & Community Services is an approved Institute of Public Character (IPC) and is authorised to receive tax-deductible donations.
