About Campaign

Giving Tuesdays is a weekly play-based programme that takes place every Tuesday afternoon for children with varying disabilities.

Little is known on how play supports children with a disability in terms of the development of executive and 21st century skills. Understanding what children can do through play is a process of discovery and Giving Tuesdays provides the opportunity for further exploration and observation on this.

The Centre remains open to all other children at the same time to promote the spirit and importance of inclusiveness. For children with varying disabilities and their families, admission is supported by donations and the doors are open free for them.

Currently, we have over 10 families who come regularly for the programme where they engage in different forms of artful play - painting, role-playing, tinkering and more. Through different activities, they have been able to express their creative potential, develop crucial skills such as communication and collaboration, and form new meaningful relationships.

Giving Tuesdays has now become a weekly activity that they look forward to where they enjoy dedicated playtime with their family members and new friends, for the two hours or more that they are here for. We are also witnessing how parents of these families are gradually forming a community, as they interact and share relatable experiences.

We are seeking for more donations to support more families to be part of Giving Tuesdays.

About the Charity

Playeum is a non-profit independent organisation that champions children through play, creativity and the arts, and is also an advocate and promoter of the voice and rights of children. They see children as authentic culture citizens. Through direct participation and collaborations with artists and art groups, they offer all children equal opportunities to create, express and ignite their imagination while using play to enhance social emotional learning and confidence building.

They run Asia's first Children's Centre for Creativity currently located at the serene settings of Gillman Barracks. The Centre is opened to ALL children, where they can play freely everyday 6 days a week. For those where fees are a consideration, they have the Play-It-Forward fun where donors pay it forward. Playeum works closely with community partners such as Family Service Centres (FSCs), Children's Home & Child Protection Services to ensure that children from disadvantaged backgrounds have the space and time to play creatively, through the support of the Play-It-Forward programme.

Playeum also does social impact work with children from challenging backgrounds through high touch programmes and workshops that use play to enhance social emotional learning and confidence building.
