Our Campaign Story

ends 28 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM

Children are our future, and it's critical to protect them from any impact that the pandemic might have on them. As uncertain times persist, it is clear that not all children are equipped to handle the difficult challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic poses to their families, well-being and their education. For these kids and their families, we can do more to lift them up so that they will not be left behind.

ANZ's Purpose is to shape a world where people and communities thrive. Once again, ANZ Singapore is working with a group of social services agencies including Rainbow Centre which runs an out-of-school-hours centre, providing day care and educational support for students with disabilities who are currently enrolled in a special education (SPED) school.

This year, ANZ will partner with Rainbow Centre to fundraise for its new campus, Admiral Hill School (21 Admiralty Lane). The new campus will serve 300 students with autism aged 7 to 18 years old, with a social town concept incorporating vocational, recreational and retail spaces into the campus grounds. This “Building for Community” fundraising campaign will receive dollar-for-dollar matching up to $250,000 from the Tote Board. (https://www.giving.sg/rainbow-centre/spacesforcommunity).

About Campaign

You and I experience the world in a unique way. What we often don't realise is the power of design and architecture to create spaces which shape our lives and include or exclude people with differences, like disabilities. Spaces for Community aims to broaden our shared understanding of inclusive design and accessibility to seed conversations and spark ideas on designing solutions for the disabled. After all, when we solve for one, we solve for many.

Spaces for Community is an educational campaign part of Rainbow Centre's Building for Community fundraising effort to raise $5 million for our new Admiral Hill Campus which will serve 300 students with autism. Designed with a Social Town concept, the campus will host regular inclusive community events and opportunities to connect our students with the public. Support our campaign and join us in building #spacesforcommunity!
