About Campaign

In Singapore, children below 18 years old can be removed from their natural families due to abuse, abandonment, neglect or the loss/incarceration of parents. They are then placed temporarily in out-of-home care (e.g. foster family or a children's home).

Among them, there is an even more vulnerable group who have been identified as having special learning needs, including those formally diagnosed with developmental conditions (e.g. Dyslexia, ADHD, etc).
Many of these children attend mainstream schools, but they lack basic academic skills, have limited capacity for learning, and struggle with behavioural and psychological co-morbidities. They struggle with literacy and/or numeracy, and fall drastically behind their peers.

As they are underperforming profoundly and require specialised attention to help them manage their behavioural and psychological challenges, there is a need for specialised learning support programmes (LSPs) for them, but the cost of LSPs can be a source of financial strain for their caregivers in out-of-home care.

World Vision Singapore (WVS) is committed to stand in the gap to enable children in out-of-home care with special learning needs access specialised LSPs every year. We will work with agencies in the out-of-home care sector and accredited LSP providers. WVS will cover their LSP fees, as well as the cost of learning needs assessment prior to enrolment and related transport costs for children in residential care where needed.

About the Charity

World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice.

World Vision Singapore is a branch of World Vision International, and is a registered charity with Commissioner of Charities in Singapore.

In planning, implementing and evaluating its work, World Vision staff considers the basic needs of the child and the dynamics of the particular child's community. Does the child have a healthy diet? Is he or she attending school? Does the child have access to adequate health care, clean water, housing and clothing? Do his or her parents have an opportunity to improve the family's condition by growing more food or starting a small business?

All projects are regularly measured against such goals and objectives. Audits are conducted regularly by field staff and occasionally by outside consultants to ensure that the project is on track and is meeting the specific goals established by community leaders and World Vision.

Our help is offered without any reference to the religious faith of those with whom we work. People from Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu and animist communities all receive help from World Vision.

World Vision accounts for every dollar. Audits are conducted regularly by external firms to verify the accuracy of World Vision's financial reporting.
