I CAN READ WITH JOY PARTY



I
Can Read and children from AMKFSC Community Service Ltd celebrated the completion of literacy courses sponsored by I Can Read Singapore.



On the 14th of December 2017, children from 
AMKFSC Community Services Ltd, their parents and representatives of I Can Read Singapore gathered to celebrate the completion of the “I Can Read with JOY (Joint Outreach for the Young)” campaign.  The event was part of an ‘I Can Read Corporate Social Responsibility campaign’ and included the cooperation of AMKFSC Community Services Ltd, a community-based social service agency, which provides a holistic range of services to support children, youths, families and seniors at multiple touchpoints across Singapore.

During the yearlong campaign that started in February 2017, I Can Read sponsored a class of 20 students between the ages of 6 and 9, by supplementing their studies with I Can Read literacy courses. Apart from being a great success, the initiative allowed I Can Read to give back to the Singaporean community by supporting students from financially disadvantaged families and ensuring their journey to reading literacy was an enjoyable and rewarding one.

At the event students feasted on a buffet spread, snatched up some goodie bags and collected letters of commendation from I Can Read Executive Director, Mr Ngo Tong Yong. The children’s excitement was evident, and our staff was thrilled with the exceedingly positive feedback from AMKFSC’s staff and parents. One happy parent said “I hope I Can Read will continue with their programmes at AMKFSC, because my child has learned a lot from the teachers. His English grades have also improved tremendously.”

Encouraged by the positive experience and the significance of the cause, I Can Read and AMKFSC has decided to continue this campaign for the next two years. This initiative will also be extended to two Voluntary Welfare Organizations (VWO), namely Club Rainbow and Trans Family Services.

Stay tuned to our Facebook page as I Can Read will document the campaign and success of our next batch of deserving students!
