Canossaville Children and Community Services
Licensed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development and Early Childhood Development Agency, Canossaville Children and Community Services runs a Student Care Centre, and an integrative preschool. Together with a Child Development Unit that will be set up in mid 2018, this is a programme catering to both mainstream children, as well as those with mild-to-moderate special needs, giving priority to the poorest living in the lower income neighbourhoods. We are open to all faiths and races.
By providing a safe and integrative environment where every child is respected and supported according to his or her unique needs, our children are given the opportunity to learn and develop to their fullest potential. Our children are taught values and skills to prepare them for life. Above all, they are nurtured and empowered to be persons of integrity, committed to God and caring for others under our “Formation of the Heart” programme.
Intended use of funds through the YFC 2018 programme
The fees charged by Canossaville are highly subsidised. They cover only about 40% of the actual cost of running the centre. The funds raised will contribute towards covering the cost of running the centre, which includes the provision of specialised programmes and therapies for the children.
Engaging and involving the YFC participants
1. Invite the teams to our centre to understand our cause and to know the beneficiaries
2. Share with them the same values that we inculcate in our children
3. Encourage and motivate them to hone their entrepreneurial skills
4. Steer them towards their own personal growth and development as well during the project
