About Campaignends 27 Mar 2023, 11:59 PM
New Life Stories supports children of the incarcerated and their families through early childhood education, personal growth and parenting engagements.
We provide upstream intervention - which means we provide preventive solutions for the children early in their lives - to achieve better outcomes and give them a fairer start in life. This is done through our Family Strengthening Programme.
Each family we work with is supported closely by a member of our counselling team, our social work team, our volunteer management team and a trained befriender.
We restore emotional connections within the family through our Family Play Box. We strengthen family bonds through group counselling sessions and open visits in the prison.
This is what sets us apart from other service providers - we provide intensive, personalised, at-home intervention for these families to ensure they are not left behind.
We seek your generous donation to help our
children and give them a fairer start in life. At a rate of a monthly
phonics class, support us through a cash donation to help us serve these families.
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.
