Our Story

From a humble shoebox outfit to three bustling centers, we ignite boundless learning through enrichment programs for 2,000 underprivileged kids islandwide.

Humble

Beginnings

Starting as a small initiative in 2017 to assist families in need, we conducted weekly non-academic classes for underprivileged kids in the community.

Our primary goal was to bring typically inaccessible opportunities beyond school closer to the heartlands.

 

This endeavor expanded our influence islandwide, culminating in the establishment of three centers.

Relative Poverty

 

"POOR" IS RELATIVE

Some families stretch budgets for gadgets, trips, and rides to avoid social exclusion for their kids.
 
Living paycheck to paycheck makes them vulnerable, but the intent is clear: the best for their children.
 
However, passing on these habits creates a precarious legacy.

BEYOND RUNNING
ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS

We establish a safe and conducive environment for children to broaden their worldview, develop fresh perspectives, and acquire soft skills.

 

Ultimately, this shapes their moral compass, guiding them later in life.

"ART, MUSIC & GAMES GALORE, EXCITEMENT AND WONDER FOREVERMORE"

 

We disrupt the poverty cycle by creating access to affordable privileges in life.

 

We continuously endeavour new ways to equalise opportunities among the social classes.
