Our Campaign Storyends 07 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM
As part of our Giving Week initiative from 29 Nov - 7 Dec, KPMG in Singapore is organising a fundraiser in support of SPD's Transition of Employment (TTE) programme. TTE is a community-based return-to-work programme that reintegrates people with acquired physical disabilities back into the mainstream workforce.
Last year, TTE supported 84 persons with disabilities. Of which, 72% of discharged clients went back to work, achieving economic self-reliance, dignity and independence.
This year, KPMG in Singapore will be matching all donations made (capped to $25,000), doubling the impact of your support. Your donation will go a long way in helping our beneficiaries reintegrate into society through customised work preparation intervention and vocational training support.
Every contribution big or small will help the beneficiaries rebuild their lives.
Here's how your donation will make an impact:
- $20 helps a person with acquired physical disabilities from a low-income family receive one session of active rehabilitation and training.
- $100 provides up to five sessions of active rehabilitation, psychosocial and employment intervention to improve functional status.
- $250 provides specialised door-to-door transport services to access active rehabilitation, psychosocial and employment support services for one month.
- $600 provides one month of active rehabilitation, psychosocial and employement intervention at the SPD TTE centre to maximise one's potential to return to work.
