Our Campaign Story

ends 02 Sep 2022, 11:59 PM

We are a group of Year 3 students from Edgefield Secondary School. As part of our Values-in-Action (VIA) project, we have conducted research on the issue of inclusiveness and are interested in bettering our community around us.
At the start of this year, we conducted some research on inclusiveness and have decided to choose a beneficiary that is close to our heart. We placed ourselves in the shoes of the proposed beneficiary which is people with disabilities and felt that the majority of people with disabilities are not included in our society. They are often misunderstood and treated differently from others. Thus we wanted to open the minds of people to be more accepting and to give an opportunity to people with disabilities so that they will feel a sense of belonging in our society. We also want to raise funds to support people with disabilities.

About The Charity

SPD is a local charity set up in 1964 to help people with disabilities maximise their potential and be a part of mainstream society.

We are here to help children and youths with special needs reach for the stars and be the best that they can be through early intervention and educational support.

We strive to boost the self-reliance and mobility of persons with disabilities within the community, and we do so through therapy services, assistive technology and the support and encouragement of our care team.

Our day care programmes provide respite to families, making it possible for persons with disabilities to stay with their loved ones at home for as long as possible without having to resort to institutional care.

A strong advocate for inclusive employment, we train people with disabilities and work with them to seek suitable employment opportunities so that they can be financially independent and lead a full and engaged life.

After more than 50 years, we remain focused and committed to enabling people with disabilities.
