Our Campaign Storyends 14 Sep 2023, 11:59 PM
Imagine waking up every day to a world that is not designed for you. Imagine facing barriers and challenges that most people don't even think about, simply because of a disability you were born with or acquired. This is the reality for millions of disabled individuals around the world, and it can be overwhelming.
Your donation can help provide essential services like healthcare, education, and counseling that can change someone's life. It can support advocacy and awareness-raising efforts that challenge discrimination and promote inclusion
. It can provide access to technology that makes it possible for people to communicate, move, and learn in ways that were once impossible. And perhaps most importantly, it can create a sense of community and support that can make all the difference in the world.
About The Charity
Disabled People's Association (DPA) is Singapore's only cross-disability non-profit organisation. We represent the disability community, working to build a fairer society where everyone can participate in all aspects of life from education to employment and access to social integration.
What we do?
A Voice of Our Own: We are an organisation for people with disabilities run by people with disabilities. We provide a platform for all people with disabilities to speak up and ensure their voices are heard.
How we do it?
We help the disability community have a voice in society by working with decision-makers in political, commercial and educational institutions so that no decision that impacts us is made without us. We also provide training for both people with disabilities and the public, so we can work together to create an inclusive, accessible society we are all proud of.
