About Campaign

Azri* and Azmi* are K1 and K2 students of PPIS Early Childhood Education (Bukit Batok) centre. Both their parents are in prison and they are taken care of by their grandparents who are dependant on financial assistance. Both students received fee subsidies from ECDA. However, they have difficulty paying the monthly school transport fees that are about $170 each.

Diana* and Hisham* are another pair of siblings studying at the same centre at Nursery and K1 level. Recently, their father had a very bad accident and the family is in financial crisis. Due to this, they are not able to pay the monthly transport fees.

In both cases, each family has to fork out a sum of about $4,000 per year just on the transport fees of two children. This is a huge sum for a family with low income. At PPIS we encounter about six to 10 such cases per year that require a total assistance of about $20,400.

* Names have been changed to protect the identity of the children.

About the Charity

"Growing up, I witnessed how my mum raised my siblings and I. She put us through school and provided food by working two jobs everyday. The only chance we get to spend time together sharing our day is when she picks me up from the student care centre (SCC). Seeing how strong she is makes me want to become a firefighter when I grow up. I want to study hard and achieve my dream so that she doesn't have to work so hard and have time for herself. At PPIS SCC, I was given the opportunity to visit a fire station for the first time! Since then, I knew I wanted to be as strong as my mum and help others." At PPIS Student Care Centres, we strive to keep our fees as low as possible while students enjoy enrichment programmes and activities at no extra cost. We want them to realise their dreams and become contributors to the society. Your contributions can help our centres provide better programmes to unleash the potential in these children.
