How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Many of our students from low income families are on financial aid. There are some who fall short of the criteria but actually need some assistance. $10 may help these group of students.
Your simple $50 can help to contribute to the various programmes in school, which will ultimately benefit our children and teenagers with special needs.
A $100 can help to subsidise the transport fees for a student from a lower income family for a month. This will help ease the financial burden of the family and get the student to school.
With $200 or more, you can help use with our Building Extension. With the extension, we are able to increase our capacity to serve more students and provide better experiences.

The new purpose-built facility will serve 350 children aged 6 years and below in the Early Intervention Programme and an additional 130 students aged 7 to 18 years in the Special Education Programme. The new wing will house RC's Head Office, its Training and Consultancy unit and also a new Special Student Care Centre for 50 students.
The building project is estimated to cost $21.5million. Our share of the cost is estimated at $6.5million after funding from the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Social and Family Development.
