About Campaign

50 runners from Morning Star Community Services will be taking part in the Standard Chartered Marathon 5km Run on 8 Dec to help raise funds for the kids at NOVA. We welcome and appreciate your support in helping us to fundraise at least $20,000.

Children enrolled in NOVA are referred by their school because they have learning difficulties and social-emotional issues. These children tend to come from multi-stressed, economically disadvantaged families.

The NOVA Learning Intervention Programme helps them to overcome these difficulties and develop their confidence. Last year, through the efforts of the facilitators at NOVA, two of the students at NOVA were among the top performers in the PSLE Foundation Level.

The NOVA Learning Intervention Programme is currently available at four primary schools and is offered to the beneficiaries at NO cost.

Funds raised will support the running of the NOVA Labs as well as the expansion of the programme to more schools.

About the Charity

Morning Star Community Services is a registered charity and Institution of Public Character which aims to enrich and strengthen family relationships in Singapore. By empowering individuals and families, we strive to build vibrant communities that can make a difference to society.

In a world where challenges to harmonious family relationships are increasing in intensity, Morning Star Community Services also provides upstream, preventive and early intervention programmes, counselling services, and family life education workshops which are conducted regularly for the benefit of parents and their children.

We have two initiatives that serve the underprivileged and disadvantaged children - NOVA and CareNights.

NOVA is school-based (our centres are located in the schools) and reaches out to children who are not doing well in school. They tend to come from low-income and multi-stressed families.

CareNights is a free night care programme for children of families in need. The children come to our centres from 6pm to 10pm on weeknights because their parents are unable to look after them at night for various reasons. We provide dinner and structured activities to enhance the children's learning of skills and values.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
