Continuing The Reason We Smile
“Continuing The Reason We Smile” campaign seeks to make a difference in supporting over 12,000 AWWA clients within our 30 services organisation-wide, including early intervention for pre-schoolers, education and disability support for children and adults with additional needs, assistance to low-income families, caregivers, and health and social assistance for vulnerable seniors.
This campaign aims to invest in a more inclusive community. Giving where the need is greatest, we believe your support will fuel existing clients and generations to come with a brighter future, empowering the greatest potential in them.
Beyond 50 – Building Future Leaders
Every contribution goes beyond another 50 years of service in the community.
In the non-profit sector in Singapore, there is a gap in establishing a better sense of occupation. This fundraising effort will help in the development of continuous talent in the sector, allowing for better long-term services, holistic care, and a more inclusive community.
Your invaluable contribution will go towards AWWA’s Welfare Fund, which supports over 12,000 clients, including early intervention for pre-schoolers, education and integration support for children and adults with additional needs, disadvantaged families, and therapy services for seniors.
The Tote Board Enhanced Fund-Raising programme provides additional support grants with a 40% matching capped at $100,000. It means your donation will be multiplied!
Giving Children A Voice
AWWA School @ Napiri started in 1979, providing special education to children with multiple disabilities and autism, aged 7 to 18, to enable the potential for independence and improve their quality of life.
Students with complex communication use various forms of Augmentative Alternative Communications (AAC) to express their needs and participate in the community. Currently, most students carry paper-based communication systems such as PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) files, or Aided Language Displays (ALD), which have limitations such as a lack of voice output and portability.
This project aims to provide opportunities for students with complex communication needs to learn how to use an AAC device to communicate and interact with others. Students identified have the capability to learn how to use an AAC device for communication and will benefit from using a high-technology AAC device to interact with teachers, therapists, friends, and family in all environments.
To achieve this, AWWA School @ Napiri needs funding to purchase AAC devices that can be customised for students with complex communication needs and provide greater opportunities to enhance our students’ communication.
Our Steps Forward
The “Our Steps Forward” campaign aims to make a difference in supporting thousands of AWWA beneficiaries by providing early intervention for pre-schoolers, education and integration support for children and adults with additional needs, social assistance for vulnerable families, and care services for seniors.
The goal of this campaign is to invest in a more inclusive community. Giving where the need is greatest, we believe your support will allow us to continue to empower the disadvantaged to maximise their potential to lead independent and dignified lives.
Your contribution enables transportation for our children with special needs to attend school, balanced meals for our seniors to keep them nourished, mobility training and basic daily living skills for those with additional needs to encourage their mental and physical wellness, and food rations for vulnerable families.
Make an impact today by donating to make a difference in the lives of those in need! Your donation to this campaign will go towards the AWWA Welfare Fund.
Build A School
AWWA School @ Bedok started operations on 4 Jan 2022 and targets to serve 300 students aged 7 to 18 years old with autism. It aims to develop the abilities of every child, enabling them to reach their fullest potential. To achieve this, the school adopts an extensive curriculum that includes using assistive technology and communication apps to enhance learning, building facilities that will give our students the opportunity to participate in new activities, and developing a conducive classroom environment for our students.
Be part of the #BuildASchool campaign to raise $50,000 for 300 students with autism. Your donation will change the lives of many students just like Darius and give them an opportunity of going to school and able to receive higher subsidies for quality special education such as transition planning, vocational program, inclusion collaboration, engagement program, integration of sports, and environmental learning.
A Place We Call Home
In line with AWWA’s mission to empower the disadvantaged to lead independent and dignified lives, AWWA has embarked on a journey to operate an Adult Disability Home and Day Activity Centre (DAC) which is estimated to be operational in 2022. This provides 300 stay-in clients with a safe place to live at ADH. 50 clients can benefit from drop-in services and activities daily at DAC. For families who are unable to care for their loved ones, this place provides respite and peace of mind. Funds raised will go towards supporting this cause.
