Many of our beneficiaries' parents are uneducated, unskilled, and employed in odd-jobs or low-wage jobs.

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!

About the Charity

Children's Wishing Well (CWW) is a registered charity and IPC founded in 2002. We have won the Charity Transparency Awards accorded by MCCY from 2019 to 2022.

We focus on supporting children and youth from low-income families, mainly through educational programmes and financial assistance. We reach out to over 1,000 beneficiaries each year via 2 full-service centres, 7 community sites, and collaborations with other charitable organisations. We depend solely on donations from private organisations and members of public to fund our services, while keeping all our programmes and services 100% free of charge for the children and families. We believe that by providing the children with educational support and more equal opportunities, they will be able to maximise their potential and get out of the poverty trap.

Cash donations above $50 are eligible for 250% tax deduction, if full name and NRIC/FIN/UEN number are provided. We will auto-file the tax deduction with Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) only if you provide your full name and NRIC/FIN number. We regret that we would not be able to process the IRAS auto-filing if you do not provide complete and accurate information.
