Like many Malaysians, CS (not his real name) came to Singapore to make a living many years ago. Working odd jobs and in warehouses, he earnestly works to make a living. He has since settled here, living in a rental flat as a single dad and with a young 6yo daughter to care for.

Everything is going up, he says. The cost of living is becoming an increasing burden for this family of 2, and yet, he cannot work extra hours because no one else can care for his kid. The fear of his daughter being isolated and falling behind is also slowly creeping in. As she grows and moves on to higher grades, he is worried about not being able to guide her anymore or afford tuition. It was especially harder for him to be apart from his daughter, who was stuck in JB during covid.

You can help ease a father's burden by making a small donation to Glyph Community. This will help us continue running different non-academic activities for underprivileged kids, providing them opportunities they otherwise would not have.

It is stressful, but when I come home, I hear my daughter laugh and talk; all the stress goes away. - CS

About the Charity

Mission: Enriching development of children from families-in-need through quality non-academic programmes

Vision: Equalising opportunities for the next generation

Glyph Community aims to advance opportunities for underprivileged children and youth in Singapore to access world-class holistic development, through conducting weekly non-academic activities and programmes, which are structured around a developmental framework and a socially connected community.

People lacking the resources, exposure and a conducive environment from very young lack the confidence, skills and relationships to capitalize on opportunities in life. When they try to acquire these skills and networks later on in life, it's so much more difficult for them to succeed and break out of a vicious cycle. Glyph Community disrupts this cycle by offering kids and youth from lower-income households or challenging family environments access to affordable privileges in life. It is our mission to continuously endeavour new ways to combat obscene inequality and to equalise opportunities among the social classes.
