Our Campaign Story

ends 17 Oct 2020, 11:59 PM

In a 2003 Special Olympics-commissioned survey spanning 10 countries, 60% of adults believed that students with intellectual disabilities should be educated in special schools. The prevalent negative attitudes toward people with intellectual disabilities are largely reflective of what is widespread in society: the limited visibility of people with disabilities, cultural #Stigma and expectations assigned to them.

Project Grace is a Citi-YMCA Youth For Causes project seeking to end discrimination against and empower individuals with intellectual disabilities. Pledge your support for this peaceful revolution against the stigmatisation and marginalisation of individuals with intellectual disabilities. Inclusion Matters.

About The Charity

Special Olympics (SO) Singapore was set up in April 1983 as an adjunct committee of the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) and the Association for Educationally Sub-Normal Children now known as Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN). Subsequently it was officially registered as an independent voluntary welfare organisation with the Registrar of Societies on 15 January 1991 and as a charity with the Commissioner of Charities on 22 February 1994. SO Singapore is affiliated to the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC). SO Singapore is recognised by Sport Singapore, formerly known as Singapore Sports Council, as a National Sports Association (NSA). SO Singapore is also a certified Institute of Public Character (IPC) organisation.
