HCSA Dayspring Residential Treatment Centre (RTC) offers a caring, safe and therapeutic environment to help teenage girls who have suffered the complex trauma of emotional, physical or sexual abuse; physical and emotional neglect; or household dysfunction.

Dayspring Residential Treatment Centre 


Once every week, Project Dayspring volunteers visit Dayspring RTC in groups of 3-4 to provide the residents with tutoring support. Our volunteers thus get to create a conducive and safe space for the girls to grow academically. Volunteers would usually be rostered for two sessions a month, based on a sign-up/availability basis.

In addition to the weekly tutoring sessions, during school holidays, we organise special events and outings for the girls. These activities serve as a break from their academic work and also help facilitate bonding between the girls and the volunteers.

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 community members.

-  Sim Ser Lyn, Chairperson
When I volunteered for the first time, I was pretty scared of approaching the community members 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 🙂

- Charmaine Ong, Vice-Chairperson
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.

- Weing Kyi, Volunteer Management and Programme 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
