World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) is an annual global awareness day officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. Together with the community, we celebrate this day on 17 March 2018 (Saturday) from 8.30am to 3.00pm at Dhoby Ghaut Green, 10, Penang Road.

This year's theme of *What I Bring To My Community--Advocating rights and opportunities for meaningful contributions* fully embodies the need for all of us to come together on this special day!

All people with Down syndrome must have opportunities to contribute to the community and live valued lives, included on a full and equal basis with others, in all aspects of society. People with Down syndrome can and do bring so much to the community, wherever they live around the world, when given the opportunity. But many are prevented from making meaningful contributions.

On this WDSD 2018, we invite everyone to lend your support to persons with Down syndrome!

The funds raised from this event will go into the running of the many educational and enrichment programmes for persons with Down syndrome to enable them to lead an inclusive life in the community.

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.
