Build a Bike, Gift a Memory
Remember your first ride on a bicycle as a kid? Remember the fall, the scratches, and finally, the feeling of successfully riding your very own bicycle without training wheels on? So many children never get to experience this cherished memory, and that's where your team comes in! We have partnered with Canossaville Children And Community Services to give the gift of bikes to their children, and endeavour to make this mission a successful one with the help of our team building clients (you!).
For most of the children involved, typically ages 7-9, the bikes you build will be their first one ever! This purpose will encourage your team to work harder and with greater passion as they know the final outcome is a great gift for somebody else. In this programme that lasts about 2-3 hours, the Get Out! team will engage qualified bicycle technicians to teach and assist your participants to build the bikes properly and safely. The completed bikes will then be delivered to a beneficiary of your choice (we currently focus on donating all bikes to Canossaville Children And Community Services), and will send you photos of the delivery as well as a letter of appreciation from the beneficiary.

2018 Beneficiary Focus
While it is impossible to help everyone, making the world starts with someone! For 2018, the Get Out! team has picked Canossaville as our beneficiary focus for 2018. If you do not have a preferred beneficiary, we would recommend that you choose to donate your bikes to Canossaville. Otherwise, feel free to let us know your preferred beneficiary and we will make all arrangements to ensure your bikes are properly donated to them.
Canossaville Children and Community Services (Canossaville) runs an integrated Preschool and Student Care Centre in the Aljunied-MacPherson area. Their programmes cater to both mainstream, as well as those with additional needs, giving priority to the poorest living in the lower income neighbourhoods. They are open to all faiths and races.
Aged between two to fourteen years old, Canossaville's children are taught values and skills to prepare them for life. Under their “Formation of Heart” programme, the children are nurtured to be persons of integrity, committed to God and caring for others. Within a safe and value rich environment, every child is empowered to develop their God-given talents to the fullest.
Founded by the Canossian Sisters in 1941, Canossaville is licensed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) and the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA). It is also an approved Institute of Public Character (IPC) and is authorised to receive tax-deductible donations.
Licensed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), Canossaville operates under the guidance of the Canossian Daughters of Charity.
Together with Canossa Convent, Canossian School (for the hearing impaired), and Canossa Convent Primary School, they are part of the Canossian Eduplex. This borderless concept was created to promote an integration of services and to encourage close interaction between each entity. Other Canossian mission schools are St Anthony’s Canossian Primary School and St Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School.
