Aim of Beyond Social Service:

Aim to   curb delinquency among disadvantaged young people and their families and to move them beyond their problems. We want to develop young people who respect the law, value education and seek to become responsible persons.

We take a long-term view and focus on impacting young lives by providing them access to social, educational and community support programmes. We value inter-organisational collaboration & will steadily expand by building networks of individuals and organisations that can contribute towards our vision. We would therefore gladly work with others, as we believe that our target group will ultimately benefit when more members of the community take an active interest in their well-being.

The Goals of BSS:

That children and youths steer clear of crime and drugs;

  • That children and youths achieve educational success that enables them to earn a living and realise a more meaningful life;
  • That children and youths are prepared to become responsible adults who manage their families or households competently.
  • That parents, children and youths attain skills that enable them to manage money prudently for their long-term financial needs;
  • That parents and caregivers take an active interest in the well-being and development of their children and youths.

OUR   INTERVENTION WITH BSS:

As part of the LIFE{ Learning is Fun and Exciting} IWA has conducted Card making workshop on Valentine’s day , an event on recycling and understanding the Importance of Going Green, an event on importance of Health and Safety, fun with Science and a  fun with Football event with children in the age group of seven and twelve years. Our interaction with the children has been fruitful and positive and the children have learnt creatively and innovatively through these workshops. The children understood the importance of reduce, reuse and recycle and took back planters as souvenirs, which they would nurture. Other sessions like fun with Science involved teaching children how Science can be fun and interesting through simple and easy experiments like, how to stab a potato, discovering the secret code and the magic balloon. The children learnt how to put things we use in daily life to effective use in both the recycling and fun with Science workshops. Another creative methodology of role plays and pictography taught them the importance of health and safety in Singapore. Health Safety, covered major diseases like dengue, flu and bacterial infections.  Also eye care and dental care were covered. Road and fire safety were other important areas covered during the event. Other fun events like a card making workshop on Valentine’s Day where children made cards and wrote messages for their loved ones. Lastly a Fun with Football event was organised for the children.
