Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM

The Inclusive Attitudes Survey commissioned by Lien Foundation revealed that only 30% of respondents agree that Singapore is an inclusive society when it comes to children with special needs. The underlying concern over our lack of inclusiveness towards Persons with Intellectual Disabilities (PWIDs) is the marginalisation and stigmatisation of these individuals.

Project Grace is a Citi-YMCA Youth For Causes project seeking to empower PWIDs. Pledge your support for this peaceful revolution against prevalent social stigmas and damaging cultural attitudes towards PWIDs. Your donation will create continuing opportunities for Special Olympics athletes to acquire 21st century competencies for the workplace and promote the de-stigmatisation of PWIDs. Inclusion Matters.

About The Charity

Special Olympics (SO) Singapore was set up in April 1983 as an adjunct committee of the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) and the Association for Educationally Sub-Normal Children now known as Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN). Subsequently, it was officially registered as an independent voluntary welfare organisation with the Registrar of Societies on 15 January 1991 and as a charity with the Commissioner of Charities on 22 February 1994. SO Singapore is affiliated to the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC). SO Singapore is recognised by Sport Singapore, formerly known as Singapore Sports Council, as a National Sports Association (NSA). SO Singapore is also a certified Institute of Public Character (IPC) organisation.
