Project Hand in Hand is a community self-help programme supported by Temasek Foundation Cares. It aims to engage volunteers to bring preschool children (aged 3-6) with irregular attendance to school and/or back home, when the parents are unable to do so. As these children are often from complex family background, their parents often face difficulties to bring the children to school. As a result, these children lose out on the opportunity to benefit from the resources in school and face difficulties catching up with their peers when they enter primary school. You may find out more at our website: http://www.aeces.org/
We have an on-going recruitment of volunteers island-wide for the project and hope to be able to disseminate this information through different avenues so that we may reach out to as many children who needs assistance. Volunteers can either register their interest on our website, or contact me directly for enquiries. We will match the volunteers according to their availability and location. A token allowance will be given to volunteers in appreciation.
