Our Campaign Story

ends 27 Apr 2018, 11:59 PM

Who here has ever got into a paying job before they were 14 years old? I did! If I thought that life was tough, there are plenty others who are facing greater challenges. As a finalist for Mrs. Singapore 2018, and mother myself, it is my honor and privilege to be given this platform. The finalists of the pageant celebrated World Down Syndrome day 2018 in March together with the members of DSA and this left an imprint on my heart for the families, children and members of DSA. When one of the fathers told the story of a teen who was born premature with Down syndrome and was told by the doctors he would not last beyond a week and he did, the entire hall was electric! DSA is a self-funding, non-profit voluntary welfare organization with IPC (Institute of Public Character) status, which works closely and regularly with healthcare and educational professionals, and voluntary welfare organizations. http://www.downsyndrome-singapore.org/post/view/6/9
The funds raised will go to support the various programs which DSA runs such as the Adult Enhancement Programme, the DSA's Children's Education Services, which seeks to promote services for children with Down syndrome from birth to the age of 18 and this includes Educational Planning Service, Integration Facilitation Support Programme, Infant Toddler Programme and the Educational Enrichment Programme.Give to my campaign today to help me raise the cost of educating, teaching and developing our friends at DSA

About The Charity

Down Syndrome Association (Singapore) is a self-funded, non-profit Voluntary Welfare Organisation. We are dependent on donations from the corporate community and members of the public to help us continue to improve the lives of persons with Down syndrome. We provide a range of programmes for babies, children and adults with Down syndrome. These range from educational programmes that impart life-skills and independence training to young adults with Down syndrome, integration support programmes for children with Down syndrome studying in mainstream schools, enrichment programmes such as dance, speech & drama and sports programmes that aim to enhance and develop specific skills in the participants. We also conduct family support group programmes for parents (with babies, children and mature adults). We thank you for your support of DSA in our efforts to educate, train and assist people with Down syndrome to become independent and contributing citizens of Singapore.

*All outright donations will be entitled to a tax deduction of 2.5 times the amount of donation. A Tax Deductible Receipt will be issued for donations above $50.
