Our Campaign Storyends 18 Jan 2016, 12 AM
As I turn a day older, I would like to celebrate this year's birthday with giving. I've chosen to dedicate this campaign to Rainbow Center for its work with a special group of people and the dedicated special education teachers/administrators/volunteers who taught me many precious lessons when I was volunteering actively in my younger days.
Rainbow Centre Singapore is a not-for-profit organisation that serves children and young people with a diverse range of moderate to severe developmental needs, including autism and physical, visual and/or hearing disabilities; many have multiple disabilities.
Founded in 1992, Rainbow Centre currently runs two Special Education (SPED) schools for students aged 7-18 years old and two Early Intervention Programme (EIP) centres for children 2 months to 6 years old, at two campuses - Margaret Drive and Yishun Park.
Rainbow Centre also trains special education teachers and caregivers, and provides consultancy for others working with children with special needs through Rainbow Centre Training & Consultancy.
Rainbow Centre is a registered charity with the Registry of Societies and an Institution of a Public Character under the Charities Act.
