Walk No Walls

Walk No Walls is a 2017 community project spearheaded by group of students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic's School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
Founded by Shawn Lim and his project team, Walk No Walls is a youth-led project aimed at raising funds and raising awareness on the issues of social mobility, community integration and employment faced by PWDs (Persons with Disabilities) in Singapore.
In March 2017, the Straits Times reported on the need for the social integration of PWDs and able-bodied persons. The report also stressed that many buildings in Singapore were not easily accessible for PWDs. It also highlighted the need for PWDs to lead financially independent and dignified lives through gainful employment.
A July 2016 article by Channel NewsAsia also revealed that more PWDs were joining the work force and that work places should be made inclusive for the PWD community.
Shawn and his team has adopted Bizlink Centre, a charity that provides employment and training for PWDs for the Walk No Walls campaign.
Funds raised from this campaign will be donated to Bizlink Centre to support their operational costs and the needs of their beneficiaries.
Bizlink Centre empowers the disadvantaged community in Singapore, in particular persons with disabilities, to achieve independence, dignity and integration through vocational training and sheltered employment.
We serve the disadvantaged persons of various disabilities aged 16 and above regardless of their education, race, language and religion.
Bizlink celebrates 30 years of serving the community. We are able to serve and do much for the needy disadvantaged because of Your support and generous donations.
