Playeum is a non-profit independent organisation that champions children through play and creativity, and is also an advocate and promoter of the voice and rights of children. They see children as authentic cultural citizens and advocate for children by ensuring that each child is given equal opportunities to play; and playing in a way that ensures growth and learning.

They run Asia's first Children's Centre for Creativity currently located at 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 fund where donors pay it forward to allow for free entry.

At the Centre, Playeum provides all materials for children to be able to express their creativity with. Some items are running out/damaged and Playeum needs help to raise money to get more of these materials:

1) Markers
2) Colour Pencils
3) Pencils
4) IKEA Paper Rolls
5) Masking Tape
6) Low Benches (for Workshops)
7) Glue Guns + Glue Sticks
8) Aprons for Children
9) Child-friendly Tools

The raised amount will be used to purchase as many of the items listed above. Any amount goes a long way!

Special thank you to Empire Lounge who kindly offered to host the Giving Tree at their venue to spread awareness about the campaign!

About the Charity

Playeum is an independent charity organisation (IPC) that creates equal opportunities for children in Singapore to develop creativity and confidence through play and the arts. In particular, we work with children from marginalised backgrounds and children with varying disabiities.

We hold safe and non-judgemental spaces for children to have a voice and be heard, as well as to build 21st century life skills such as critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. Through this, children are empowered to thrive and be the best versions of themselves.

Our work also supports adults in becoming powerful creative facilitators for children as we shift mindsets to seeing children as creative and competent. Over the past year, we have reached out to more than 2,200 children and adults through our impact work. We work with parents, social workers, volunteers and educators.

Support our cause with a donation here today. Your support enables our work with children, to level the playing field.

Every donation dollar will be matched 1-for-1 through the National Arts Council Cultural Matching Fund.
