All of us start out with great potential, yet for some children and youths, difficult life circumstances present numerous challenges to fulfilling it. It has been our joy to befriend, nurture and guide them. Lakeside Family Services connects them to various opportunities while providing their families with the assistance they need.
Indeed, our children and youths are capable of achieving great things and creating a positive impact on society. We are proud to share heartfelt stories from our current and past beneficiaries, and the dedicated staff and volunteers who believed in them when they said “I can!”
Before, the Hadif brothers tended to shy away from reading as they were unfamiliar with phonics and letter sounds.
Our social worker shared with their mother about our reading programme. The children started attending the programme in April last year and within the span of 2 short months, they gained good foundations with phonics sounds and were able to read all types of English books suitable for their age.
They now read consistently, at least 2 books every session, and their confidence shines through smiles of exhilaration when they are able to read independently!
More stories coming soon…
