Project Hand in Hand

Project Hand in Hand

Supported by Temasek Foundation Cares

Project Hand in Hand aims to engage volunteers to be mentors to pre-school children.  These children do not attend pre-school regularly due to various challenging family circumstances.  As a result, they miss out on development opportunities during their critical early years.

We are looking for volunteers to walk the child to and from pre-school regularly or when the parents are unable to do so.

If you believe in our goals of:

- Building the ‘Kampong Spirit’ where neighbours help one another

- Breaking the cycle of poverty through education

- Getting retired seniors involved in the community

Join us as a volunteer today! You can make the difference to a child in need!
