Intended use of funds through the YFC 2023 programme

Engaging and involving the YFC participants
We may engage them by conducting an awareness talk for them. The talks are focused to inspire our audience with a deeper understanding of dyslexia, subsequently empowering them with the ability to identify dyslexic students and tips on how we can help our students with their daily academic demand as well as their self-esteem. With up-to-date information, visuals and hands-on activities, our Awareness Talks aim to ensure that audiences leave with a better appreciation of dyslexia.
