About Campaign

New Life Stories has collaborated with Ming Tan, author of children's book Near and Far, to provide its child beneficiaries with creative activity packs to keep them occupied while they stay at home and to encourage them to connect with their loved ones creatively.

Near and Far explores social distancing from a child's point of view. The book includes ideas for staying in touch, inspired by natural animal behaviour. The activity packs will include a drawing block and colour pencil set, a set of origami paper and instructions, a DIY postcard, a plant growing kit, activity sheets on colouring and joining the dots, an ocarina and the Near and Far book written by Ming Tan!

New Life Stories is aiming to raise enough through this campaign to provide the activity packs and a facilitated one-on-one in-home session to all 200 of its child beneficiaries. New Life Stories and Near and Far both show that it is possible to build and maintain bonds over distance, and that there will always be a way to close the gap.

About the Charity

New Life Stories was established in 2014 to prevent intergenerational incarceration. New Life Stories is an IPC (Institution of Public Character) that aims to provide children of incarcerated parents with essential reading and pro-social skills to ensure that they are not left behind in their crucial early years of development.

New Life Stories has put in place a holistic strategy targeted at providing support to children of the incarcerated and their families. The programmes aim to provide these children with educational and emotional stability so that they can have a fairer start in school. Their parents are also supported by our customised in-prison programmes to prepare them for their release and to give them the reassurance to successfully reintegrate back into society. New Life Stories also educates and guides the families by providing them with essential tools to be self-sufficient.

All monetary donations above SGD50 are entitled to a tax deduction of 250% of your donation amount.
