This week we have been gearing up for a busy time ahead, with our Giving Week Campaign coming up and having Christmas just around the corner.
Also, on Saturday the 26th of November from 10am to 12pm, we’re having a 'Volunteer Orientation' , at our office #06-39 Paya Lebar Square. So if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a 'Learning Friend' with New Life Stories, now’s the time to find out.
It’s a great chance to meet other Learning Friends and discover more about the rewards - and the commitments - of being a volunteer. For more information about what we do, please have a look through the rest of our site.
This week saw our second week of#ThrowbackThursday where we post relevant articles on early education, that have been published through the years. Follow this link for a piece from Forbes about how powerful storytelling is and how it should be more recognised in education: http://ow.ly/Pm9C30624fl
New week we are launching out campaign with Giving Week, which is taking place from the 29th of November to the 5th of December, so keep a look out on our social media for posts relating to this.
While in prison, Salimah Sukar feared that she would remain trapped in a cycle of crime, and separated from her children.
Worse, Salimah fretted that her children would fall behind at school while she was unable to be there to motivate them.
See how we worked with Salimah to provide the support she needed.
