We, Darrasa, channel our focus to help children and families in the community, especially children from underprivileged families and children with special needs.

We help underprivileged families and children by giving affordable tuition for the children. We are also helping families of children with special educational needs by connecting them to therapists and get affordable therapy sessions.

In some cases, with contributions from kind donors and sponsors, Darrasa is able to give free tuition and therapy sessions to families who are really struggling financially by paying the therapists and tutors on behalf of the families.

We have more requests from families to assist them financially for therapy sessions and tuition sessions and we would like to see the children continue getting the help that they deserve.

We are looking for more funds to continue this cause. No amount will be too small in the quest to allow children to continue learning.

Darrasa's founders believe that Darrasa can be a catalyst to remind others of kindness and be an avenue for people to 'pay it forward'. All it takes is one kind act. All it takes is a helping hand. Darrasa is set up for families and students, by the 'students' of life, and with the help of other 'students' who wants to make an impact and to help.

The target is $144,000.

Below are the packages that Darrasa offers:

  • SPED Support (Learning Difficulties e.g. Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADD/ADHD, ASD, Asperger's, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome) - Our Allied Educators (SPED trained tutors/therapists) will work on academic using differentiated instruction at child's level plus working on developmental domain (memory building, social communication, social interaction, attention development).

  • Therapy (Speech/Occupational/Behavior) - Qualified Therapists will work with child and parents to address developmental gaps and concerns present in child to function better in different settings and contexts.

  • Tutoring - Our tutors will go and teach/coach child (at the child's home) academics based on subjects that parents requested.

During the SPED Support and Therapy sessions, different equipment and materials are usually needed to work with the child effectively. Parents will be engaged too so that they will also know on how to engage and work with their child.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND PROGRESS OF THE BENEFICIARIES
Kel (pseudonym) is a 6 years old boy, suspected of ADHD. Mum is single-parent. He has a short attention span and fidgets around a lot. Kel needs tasks to be broken down into smaller pieces for him to be able to do work properly. He needs motivation in reading.

Rita (pseudonym) is an 11 years old girl who shows difficulty in understanding and comprehending Maths concepts and problems. She presents as someone who has dyscalculia (difficulties in Maths). She scored really badly for her P5 Maths exam and will now take P6 Foundation Maths for PSLE. She has been rejected by tutors and teachers who do not know how to work with her previously. Her confidence and self-esteem is low as a result.
Her progress (Jan-2021) - She gained confidence in doing her work and is very receptive during lessons. Parents have also reported that she seems happier to learn and looks forward to sessions with Darrasa.

Zack (pseudonym) is a 6 years old boy with ASD. He is currently waiting to get into a special school. He has transitioning issues when separated from mother and he needs help in addressing this behaviour. He needs regular and consistent educational therapy sessions to aid in his learning, social communication, social interaction and work behavior skills.
His progress (Jan-2021) - With consistency in routine and support, Zack has improved considerably. Though he still has transitioning issues, the intensity and duration of his behaviour has reduced and led to faster transitioning to new places and school. His handwriting has improved and from the last check-up with psychologist, they remarked that his fine motor and basic writing skills have improved. Well done Zack!
His progress (Mar-2021) - He is reading better and doing numbers to 100 now.

Ben (pseudonym) is a 5 years old boy with ASD. He has a short attention span and fidgets around a lot. He needs clear structure in working and though he can decode words and express them, he has issues comprehending the meaning of the words.
His progress (Jan-2021) - Ben has improved on his work system behaviour and is now more receptive to reading and learning. He is doing better with following and listening to instructions too.

Isaac (pseudonym) is a 5 years old boy who shows difficulty in speech, communication, hyperactivity and impulsivity. He has a lot of attention-seeking behavior and is highly excitable. As he is unable to speak clearly, some of his speech is muffled leading to frustrations in expressing himself at times. His attention span is very little and he moves around a lot in the home sessions.
His progress (Jan-2021) - He is communicating slightly better with people he is familiar with. He needs more help in behaviour management. Hence parents have decided to stop the program with Darrasa to focus their funds on behavior therapy.
