Ray of Hope is crowdfunding for children with special needs who come from low-income families, to attend a 3-day workshop during the June holidays. The participants will be from special needs schools and support groups, including Pathlight, Rainbow Centre and Canossian School (Singapore). We are raising funds to allow the children the opportunity to attend the workshop, and will ensure that every participant meets the criteria for the fully-subsidized rate.
Holiday Workshop: GANGWAY 2021
While air travel is restricted in this season, adventures are still boundless! We chose “Gangway” to be the theme for this workshop, emphasizing the journey to an adventure. This workshop incorporates psychological techniques like narrative therapy, psychodrama, rhythm and movement, to promote self-awareness, confidence-building, social skills, emotion regulation and perseverance in special needs children. By doing so, we also hope to dispel myths on what children with special needs can and cannot do. We will be collaborating with Raffles Runway – a fashion design club from Raffles Junior College – to design and create outfits for the children. Children will go through a journey of designing their own outfits to represent themselves, exploring how to express and control different emotions, and inviting members of their social circle to be part of the audience. Children will also be engaged in building the next gangway of their lives, where they discuss goals and possible challenges that may arise. The workshop culminates in a gangway showcase and an afternoon tea.
In addition to Raffles Runway, we will also be engaging the help of hairstylists to dress the children up, and photographers and videographers to commemorate the event. Catered food, red carpet, and a photo wall are some of the items we’ll be getting to enhance the whole Gangway experience.
