Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM

Your GIFT creates REAL impact!

Meet Charmaine (not her real name), a 3-year-old student who benefits from the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC) for her hearing loss at Canossaville Preschool.

The Canossaville Preschool is the only mainstream preschool in Singapore with a specialisation of working with children with hearing loss, with intervention sessions held during curriculum hours.

It is a struggle for Charmaine's family to meet their daily needs. Charmaine's mother has to put aside money each month for Charmaine's brother who requires monthly occupational therapy at KKH. Charmaine's grandfather has a heart condition, and while he is able to work, most of his salary goes to his medical care.

To ease their burden, Canossaville subsidises half of Charmaine's preschool and school bus fees. We believe that a child's preschool years are crucial for their development, even more so for children with disabilities such as hearing loss.

Your donations will help us strive to do all we can for Charmaine and others like her by giving them the best possible start in their education.

About Campaign

All donations to the Season of Giving campaign shall be eligible for dollar matching by the Singapore Government and Tote Board up to cap of $250,000 per charity.

Every year, we all look forward to a special occasion. For some it could be a birthday, for others, a festive season such as Christmas. While we all celebrate these special occasions in our own ways, many also choose to give and share with others who need a little bit more help.

At Canossaville Children and Community Services, our programmes and services are open to our children and their families all year round, with priority given to those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Education is at the core of what we do and our Canossian Circle of Care provides the supporting structure to children through a preschool, after-school care as well as a child development unit.

This can only be made possible with the support of donors like yourself. We advocate for sustainable giving all year round to support all our programmes and services. In reality, donors tend to only donate at the end of the year during the season of giving.

We acknowledge this and humbly seek your kind support for us to build up enough donations to sustain our programmes and services through the year.

Thank you for not forgetting us during this season of giving. Your special thoughts warm the hearts of our children and their families under our care.
