Why we need your help

Resource Limitations

MIJ Hub_AMP Landing Page Wireframe-06.png

Many students with special needs require specialized learning materials, assistive technologies, and smaller class sizes for optimal learning. Unfortunately, budget constraints often limit access to these crucial resources, hindering their academic progress and overall development.

Increasing Demand

The number of students diagnosed with special needs is steadily rising. This positive trend highlights a growing awareness of learning differences but also creates a greater demand for qualified educators, support staff, and specialized programs. Unfortunately, resources often haven't kept pace with this rising need.

Funding Shortage

A lack of sufficient funding creates a constant battle for essential resources, impacting everything from after-school therapy sessions to specialized teacher training programs. This shortfall hinders our ability to provide the comprehensive support our students need to thrive.

  • Student Programs and Skills Development
    $700,000 – MIJ Hub seeks to empower our clients, both within classroom and beyond, and we enlist our community in this effort. The Student Programs and Skills Development will help unlock the full potential of our clients by allowing them to participate and engage in enhancement programmes meant to discover and accelerate growth, provide access and exposure to new unexplored heights, and also to find and compromise their hidden talent. Designing original, customised programmes with an individualised approach requires much resources and provisions to make it purposeful and impactful qualitatively. With your help — with your generosity — we elevate the very core of who we are as a one stop centre.
  • Inclusive FOA Experience
    $150,000 – Friends of Ashraf’s aims to ideate, develop and organise inclusive interactions through fulfilling and fun social activities between neurotypical youths and youths with learning differences and physical challenges age 17 to 35 years old. Our goal is to forward a culture of respectful interaction, and a philosophy in which the differences of thought and experience are understood to be sources of personal and communal strength and effectiveness, fulfilling MIJ’s promise. This will allow our clients to develop the qualities of confidence and expression and for us, the tools of collaboration and compromise that will serve our clients well as members of our inclusive community.
  • Job Training Support System
    $400,000 – Job Training Support System represents a radical departure from traditional approaches to preparing students for life after MIJ’s Education. Through financial aid we provide access to MIJ Education; we support all students for success; and Job Training Support System helps to bridge students to life in the working world. Through a replica model of work setting, it help our clients explore interests, build critical skills, and complement their studies with real-world experience in a wide range of fields. These experiences also provide space for experimentation, helping them fine-tune their field of interest in real-time. Upon securing a spot in one of our partner employers, job consultants will work closely to ensure maximum fit for our clients in their new working environment during the critical transitional phase.
  • Inspiring work
    $250,000 – Inspiring Work is grounded in MIJs’ mission to empower and be advocates for the Special Needs community, and takes a developmental approach to working with our clients and the community. Through professional-taught courses, a speaker series, and other engagement and/or awareness opportunities, Inspiring Work promotes greater agency not only in our clients’ approach to their learning years and a stronger bridge to life upon graduation, employment and beyond but also our community’s understanding and perspective of the important work that we do.

Words by our Beneficiaries

From "Unable" to Empowered:
A Single Mother’s Story of Hope

- Parent of Muhammad Radhi Adyan & Muhammad Rayess Affan

“I feel relieved because it helps reduce the financial pressure on my family. Without this financial support, I might not be able to send my children to classes because I have two special needs children."

"I Might Not Be Able to send them":
A Parent's Plea for Support

"Sometimes we feel that the fees are just too expensive. We can't afford it. I used to feel the same way. Unable to send these special needs children because the fees are not cheap. If we didn't receive this kind of financial aid, I wouldn't have sent Hannah to MIJ Hub because we couldn't afford it."

— Parent of Hannah Syuhadah
