Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple Walks The Journey

Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple has been walking the journey of empowering lives with AWWA for the past 6 years. Dr Tan Choon Kim, the Chairman of Kwan Im Thong Cho Temple has always been active in giving support to the disadvantaged in the society especially in education. AWWA Resource and Training Centre is one of the services that receives continuous support from the temple to empower caregivers, educators and the less privileged through our wide range and availability of books, AV materials and toys for children with special needs. Workshops on disabilities awareness are also conducted with over 1,500 participants.

“The trainer is very knowledgeable and had provided participants with many ideas on how to teach those with math dyscalculia and learning difficulties. I applied some of these fun learning techniques with my kids who immediately developed an interest. I never knew there could be so many fun methods of teaching math. Till-date, my kids still want to play math games especially my eldest daughter who has never shown a great interest and inclination for maths. I would also like to thank AWWA for organizing this workshop and hope to attend more of these workshops in future to broaden my scope on ways to teach my kids math,” says Christine Lim, a programme participant at our “Dealing with Dyscalculia & Math Learning Difficulties” workshop.

With the support from the Temple, AWWA Resource and Training Centre is able to:

  • Empower and equip parents, educators and professionals with the skills and resources to better interact and engage their children/youths with disabilities.
  • Enrich and inspire more lives by providing more convenience such as tapping on technologies such as e-journals, online teaching video, etc.
  • Reach out and educate the public on disabilities and allow better integration for people with special needs.

Since 2008, Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple has donated more than $500,000 in support of AWWA and people with disabilities and education.
