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.

We are a registered charity founded in 2002, and the only charity organisation in Singapore focused on the holistic education of children and youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. Our children come from low-income families, and their parents may be ill, incarcerated, or absent from their lives. We provide a broad range of services to them 100% free-of-charge.


Our programmes support their current educational and daily living needs, as well as equip them with skills for their future, so as to empower them to escape the poverty trap.
