Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Nov 2020, 11:59 PM

Update: Thank you to all the silent donors. I wish I could thank you personally. I didn't know I don't get notifications. Do email even just to say Hi!. Thank you so so much. Kamsa very much!
A seasoned volunteer once told me that it is most effective when you volunteer your most valuable skills.

Most of my students call me Wann saem. (saem is like 'cher in Korean). I have been teaching Korean since 2003 and been giving free Hangeul lessons for many years. I want to make it more meaningful in this tumultuous year.

Until 30th Nov, I will be providing one online lesson to donors of this campaign, teaching you how to read the Korean alphabets. One donation of $25 allows up to 2 pax.

If you already know how to read the Korean alphabets, there is a 30-minute clinic where you can ask any question you may have about Korean vocabulary and grammar. For those of you not keen in Korean language, I do hope you would still donate to improve the quality of lives of children in need and their families through this campaign.

Learn to Read Korean Alphabets (50-min):
Wednesdays 12pm
Sundays 4pm

Korean Grammar Clinic (30-min):
Wednesdays 1pm
Sundays 5pm

Make a donation here and email me at [email protected] at least 1 day before the class to receive online class details. If there are other timings you prefer, do contact me and I will try to arrange.

All proceeds go to the ST Pocket Money Fund.

About The Charity

The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal during recess, paying for transport or using it to meet other schooling needs. The financial help also eases the burden of the many parents who are already struggling to feed their families on their meagre incomes.

The Fund supports about 10,000 children and youth a year. Since the year 2000, the Fund has disbursed more than $80m and helped over 180,000 children and youth.

STSPMF disburses the funds to needy students through participating mainstream schools and disbursing agencies such as Youth Centres, Family Service Centres (FSCs), Special Education (SPED) schools, VWOs working with persons with disability, specialised schools, Children's Homes and PAVE.

STSPMF is a charity with Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.
