Children's Wishing Well
Founded in 2002, we started as a help desk for latchkey kids. The Founder built a team that offered advice to students who seemed lost and lacked family support. Today, we provide a broad range of assistance. We offer monthly groceries, lunch pocket money and cooked dinners. Our signature program, Grant-A-Wish, helps needy students with necessities for education, health and basic living. We have thus provided spectacles, hearing aids, sports shoes or equipment, book vouchers and household items. Even fumigation services.

Children’s Wishing Well provides a broad range of services for children and youth in Singapore from disadvantaged backgrounds. They come from low-income families, and their parents may be ill, incarcerated, or absent from their lives. All our services are provided free-of-charge to the beneficiaries. All cash donations are also eligible for 250% tax deduction which we can file directly with IRAS.

 

Our services support their current educational and daily living needs, and equip them with skills for their future, so as to build a strong foundation for them to contribute as useful members of society, and escape the poverty trap.

Turning the tables with an “empowering” narrative for we see people not as “what’s wrong”, but “what’s strong”. This initiative creates opportunities for students who are keen and talented in areas such as music, arts and crafts and sports to be sponsored to pursue personalized training or qualifications to help them achieve their potential.

Host a visit for secondary and post-secondary school students at your organisation to expose them to different industries and jobs, and inspire them to fulfil their maximum potential by working towards their career goals.
