What can you spend with your 20SGD? A buffet lunch? A premier movie ticket? How about helping children who struggle in reading?

#20in2020 campaign aims to raise 20,000SGD from 1,000 donors who can donate 20SGD each to support 200 children in Steady Readers (SR) Programme. SR is an intervention programme for children who are reading below their academic level.

Studies consistently show that reading proficiency is highly correlated with a child's academic success, social skills, and character development. In Singapore, there are children who are struggling to read at their academic level. They typically come from low income families and from non-English speaking home environment.


"Our family moved to Singapore from Malaysia a few years ago. As a foreigner without having English as the first language, my daughter Sophia*, found it difficult to catch up in school. This affected her self confidence. She felt intimidated when speaking out and had low self esteem. But since she enrolled in SR, I observed she became more confident in expressing herself. She can now communicate well with her peers without feeling shy or intimated. Thank you, SR for helping her improve!" shared Anna*, mother of Sophia.


Take action today! Please support the #20in2020 campaign! No amount is too big nor too small.

Help build the reading literacy of our nation's future leaders!
