Pearlyn, aged 16, is a beneficiary of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.
She lives with her mother and her old-aged grandmother. Her mother is recovering from a stroke two years ago and is unable to work.
Life has not been easy for the family, who gets by with about $700 per month from the rental of one of the rooms in their flat. Despite their circumstances, Pearlyn excels in her studies and aspires to be a nurse so that she can help save lives.
Ronn, aged 14, was a beneficiary of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund.
His dad lost his sight and his mum lost her job while he was studying in secondary school.
He drank water during recess at times just to slience his growling stomach. He did not have the energy to play with his friends in games. The Straits Tmes School Pocket Money Fund helped him to focus better in school and to develop more holistically. He has completed his studies in Singapore Polytechnic and aspires to be a good landscape architect.

The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal during recess, paying for transport or using it to meet other schooling needs. The financial help also eases the burden of the many parents who are already struggling to feed their families on their meagre incomes. The Fund supports about 10,000 children and youth a year. Since the year 2000, the Fund has disbursed more than $55m and helped over 150,000 children and youth. STSPMF disburses the funds to needy students through participating mainstream schools and disbursing agencies such as Youth Centres, Family Service Centres (FSCs), Special Education (SPED) schools, VWOs working with persons with disability, specialised schools, Children's Homes and PAVE. STSPMF is a charity with Institution of Public Character (IPC) status. Read more about STSPMF at www.spmf.org.sg
