Our Neu Empowerment Model
Proactive interventions that enable and build resilience
In 2021, we conducted a comprehensive strategic review and changed our focus to be
more proactive and impactful to help raise an empowered new generation of children — one of
self-determination and unconstrained futures.
Ensuring proactive educational intervention
Aims to support the academic performance of students who do not have the financial means for additional help with their studies. This would allow students to get the support they need to pass their examinations, especially PSLE, O-level, and N-level examinations.
Aims to recognise the academic performance of students who have done well in their studies. This would imbue in them a sense of perseverance when faced with stress in school and resilience to bounce back to overcome obstacles.
Aims to ensure that children aged 5-6 years old are able to reach their literacy development milestones in reading, speech, and other language skills. This is done through phonics using stories and songs.
Aims to provide focused attention to students who may need additional support in their studies.
Aims to remove the financial barrier many students from low-income families encounter when pursuing tertiary education. Full financial support, mentoring, and opportunities to take part in prosocial youth activities are provided. Students may pursue their tertiary education at local and private institutions.
Junior Enrichment Programme
A partnership under the Care Network Children Support Programme (CNCSP) to support children aged 7-12 years old with reading, creative writing, and other subjects. It also comprises of non-academic components such as art, speech & drama, and team building games which aims to develop children holistically.
Aims to reduce the financial expenses and stressors on families so that children can attend school and commute without worry.

Allows suitable volunteers to become role models who inspire, engage, and encourage adolescents to improve their self-esteem and confidence. Mentors and mentees may be paired on similar interests or industries.
Uses art as a medium and the creative process to help children explore, express, and understand their feelings and emotions. It consists of multiple sessions where the art therapist curates their approach based on the circumstances of each child.
Empowering confidence and sense of achievement
Workshops targeted at parents, youths, and children to develop themselves and improve familial relationships. Topics include mental health, communication, and parenting.
