Our Campaign Storyends 31 Aug 2016, 11:59 PM
We are a group of students from St. Joseph Institution who are working with Guide Dogs Association of the Blind (GDAB) as part of our Youth for Causes Project!
GDAB believes that people with vision loss are fully capable of active and fulfilling lives. They strive to help the blind and visually-impaired people to achieve their fullest potential within the society through:
Orientation & Mobility (O&M) Training
Guide Dog Programme
Public Outreach & Education
Such endeavours are costly and we hope to help GDAB in the ways we can.
We were inspired by the news article of a guide dog user meeting with difficulties inside a shopping mall and realised that the awareness, tolerance and acceptance for guide dogs are still lacking in Singapore. We want to spread the message of how guide dogs can be a life changer, and raise funds to support GDAB in their efforts.
Every donation goes a long way and thank you for your support!
