Yet, life must go on for our beneficiaries with special needs in spite of the current situation.
The Singapore Government has given eligible parties a payout from the Solidarity Budget. To those who can contribute, we hope you would be able to gift part of that payout to APSN.
For every $10 you donate, Tote Board will provide a matching of $4. We are relying on your generosity and kindness to help us raise $300,000 to support our training, operations and programmes. When it comes to donation, no amount is too small and we look forward to your generous contribution.
Together, we can weather through the storm. #SGUnited #COVID-19
*A tax-deduction receipt will only be issued upon request. Thank you.

Established in 1976, Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN) is a social service agency providing special education for persons with mild intellectual disability (IQ 50-70). Today, APSN operates four Special Education (SPED) Schools (APSN Chaoyang School, APSN Katong School, APSN Tanglin School and APSN Delta Senior School) for students aged 7 to 21, an APSN Student Care Centre for children aged 7 to 18 and an APSN Centre for Adults for persons aged 16 and older, benefiting over 1,200 beneficiaries each year.
The APSN Schools and Centre adopt a holistic approach in its curriculum, comprising academic, vocational and social skills, which are important for open employment and lifelong learning. APSN seeks to enable persons with special needs to be active contributors of the society and is committed to inspire and build capabilities of its partners and community to lead and advocate an inclusive society.
