Introduction

 

Located along Turf Club Road, HCSA Dayspring Residential Treatment Centre (RTC) serves as a safe and caring home for teenaged girls (ages 12-16 years old) who have been through the trauma of abuse. The centre aims to bring hope and healing for these girls by providing a supportive and nurturing environment. DaySpring’s vision is to see every girl, and women, especially those at risk, live a life of purpose and hope; making peace with her past, finding purpose in the present, and having renewed hope for the future.

What We Do

There are two fixed groups of volunteers and the volunteers visit Dayspring RTC once a week with their respective groups. During the visits, volunteers will organise different educational sessions which will help in promoting beneficiaries’ soft skills. These include interpersonal skills, leadership skills, as well as team cooperation. There are also several sessions which we will play games with them and just have fun! :)
Besides regular visits, during the semestral breaks, we will organize special events and/or outings for the girls, which serve as a form of relaxation from their academic work and also as a platform for volunteers to develop greater rapport with the girls.

Volunteers' Thoughts

  • By Weing Kyi, Volunteer Management and Programme Head

    “The sessions which feel the most positive are those in which the girls are cheerful and open. Them being energetic and optimistic allows for better interaction and engagement with the volunteers. Such positivity makes each volunteering session, at the end of the school day, much more enjoyable and immersive.”

  • By Choo Ze Yen, Publicity and Marketing Head

    “After a few sessions, it was heartwarming to see the girls opening up to us. Whenever we visit them, they were very sociable and optimistic. I’m glad that our sessions whereby we volunteers being there communicating with and listening to them, were able to bring a form of emotional support for the girls”

  • By Sim Ser Lyn, Chairperson

    “I think the girls face a lot of discrimination and a lack of understanding from many people. I feel like many people don’t take the time to hear them out and understand them and that’s something we can help out. Rather than merely helping them out physically via gifts etc, I feel that it’s more important to be there for them emotionally, to push them on and encourage beneficiaries.”

  • By Charmaine Ong, Vice-Chairperson

    “When I volunteered for the first time, I was pretty scared of approaching the beneficiaries because I'm scared that it will be awkward or I may say the wrong things. But after a few sessions, I'm more comfortable after getting to know them! It's important to keep an open mind :)”
