Some of our children under the ISCOS Fairy Godparent Programme were invited to a special book launch at the Enabling Village on 2 September 2017. This was held under the More Than Words programme, a signature work by the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation.

While the 11 children and 6 adults who went enjoyed the storytelling and art and craft activities very much, the highlight of the day was the launch of a new book “To Gather, Together” where two of our beneficiaries’ stories were chosen and published, much to their delight. A big thank-you to the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation for passing on the love for the written word!
