EduGrow For Brighter Tomorrows
EduGrow for Brighter Tomorrows
Strengthen social mobility of children from low income families by adopting a relational approach where community mentors are matched to the children, supporting their aspirational, character, educational, financial and relational growth. This is a joint project with WeCare@Marine Parade.
Underprivileged children can be weighed down by adversity in life, despite their innate qualities and strengths. I hope, through EduGrow for Brighter Tomorrows, to foster a caring community in Marine Parade who will mentor and enable these children to maximise their potentials and excel.

Children in pre-school and primary school are enrolled into the programme, with a volunteer mentor matched to the child. As the child goes through a series of activities designed to facilitate growth in their aspirations and character, volunteer mentors play the role of an active supporter to rally the child and family towards achieving their aspirations and potential.
