As part of the nation’s celebrations for its 50th birthday, ISCOS has embarked on a project to help 50 underprivileged households. Known as the Learning Environment Assistance Project (LEAP), it is centred on providing students under the Yellow Ribbon Fund-ISCOS Fairy Godparent Programme (FGP) with a conducive home study environment. The LEAP consists of cleaning, painting and setting up of study areas for the children, depending on the individual household’s needs. ISCOS case workers are also involved in giving parents tips and advice on how to maintain a proper study environment at home for the children.
For a start, five households have benefited from the LEAP in February this year and ten more are slated for April.
