During COVID-19, many of them lost their jobs and saw severe reduction of their income. We hope for the parents to be trained in relevant, certified courses under accredited service providers to enable them to be more employable. This would give them the means to escape the poverty trap as they would be able to find more stable, higher-paying jobs.
An example of how this programme has helped our parents is the story of Mr M (pictured above) who was sponsored to undergo his Class 3 Driver's Licence after he had done his research and found out that there are companies out there which are willing to hire ex-offenders as dispatch drivers and pay them full time salaries with CPF benefits.
Armed with his licence, he is now a temporary dispatch driver and his main goal is to ensure that he gains as much as experience as he can by clocking more hours on the road. This would increase his chances of eventually securing a full time job. Mr M would not have been able to afford driving lessons if not for the programme and he is grateful for the support rendered.
Your contribution will help sponsor parents to attend training courses. This will go a long way in helping families escape the poverty trap, and provide our children with a better home environment.
Thank you for your kind support!
