Nurturing the young
Little Giant Steps is our mentoring programme for children aged 7 to 12 years, providing social and emotional support for those who have experienced trauma in their lives. Some of our activities include learning opportunities that focused on the five senses, home visits, camps to better enable the mentees to show courage, determination, kindness, teamwork and values necessary for healthy growth and development, while strengthening mentee and mentor bonds.
We have also implemented a programme which allowed volunteers to work together in pairs to provide better support during mentorship.
In December 2018, children from both Big Love and Gracehaven set out together on a discovery trip to Pulau Ubin. The adventures there gave them the opportunity to come together to learn and work as a team to overcome various obstacles.
