No Child Should Go Hungry – The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund

The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund started in 2000 as a community project initiated by The Straits Times to provide pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal during recess, paying for transport or using it to meet other schooling needs. The financial help also eases the burden of the many parents who are already struggling to feed their families on their meager incomes.20160831_140230

In conjunction with the Mid-Autumn Mooncake festival, we invited both parents and child to create their very own mooncakes! “Green tea, lotus paste and red bean’ flavors were some of the favorite that everybody praised for the good taste and texture. We have them sold to the public and the proceed goes to the Straits Times School Pocket fund.
