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.
