+Venture is an activity-based volunteering programme that has been designed to enrich the life experiences of children through different hobbies and activities. Very often, the children that we work with do not have easy access to simple pleasures of modern life. For example, when the children are asked to write an essay about their favourite place, they are not able to write from their own experience as they do not have the luxury of exploring the different corners of Singapore.
Through +Venture, the children are given opportunities to experience activities previously not available to them which would help to improve their social skills and self confidence. Activities can include photography, walking trails, dance, etc.
+Venture through photography is a 2-session programme that allows the child to explore different parts of Singapore through the camera lens. In the first session, the child is exposed to digital or film photography where they are entrusted with a loaned camera to take photos of places of interests along the carefully designed walking trails, accompanied by a volunteer.
To reinforce the child's learning, there will be a follow up session whereby the child will create a photo collage of the places that he/she visited in the first session, with the help of (preferably) same volunteer.
