In memory of our late President , Dr Jimmy Daruwalla, the Dyslexia Association of Singapore, together with his family, will be setting up the "Jimmy Daruwalla Fund".

Dr Daruwalla was the founding President of DAS when it was first registered in 1991 and continued in this role for 25 years. An orthopedic surgeon, he brought together a small group of friends to start the DAS as a community initiative of the Rotary Club of Raffles City. Over the years, he helped build DAS into one of the most dynamic non-profit organisations in Singapore.

The success of the DAS would not have been possible without his leadership and contributions. His passion to provide the best possible support for students with dyslexia has resulted in the growth of DAS into an organization that today provides for thousands of children with dyslexia and their families through a wide range of programmes and services.

Dr Daruwalla saw dyslexia as an asset. He wanted to ensure that the stigma surrounding the difficulties that children with dyslexia have in education is removed. Hence, he selflessly devoted time and effort to rally for the public to embrace dyslexia and help develop the distinct strengths of dyslexic children.
His untimely passing came as a shock to all. It is through the "Jimmy Daruwalla Fund" that we aim to raise funds to further the cause for dyslexia that he so passionately championed.

We seek your support in making a generous donation to this fund.

About the Charity

In our efforts to continuously provide and improve our professional services to dyslexics in Singapore, we rely heavily on public donations to sustain our daily operations. DAS provides more than $1 million in bursaries every year and this figure is rising. Without support from the generous people and organisations of Singapore, this support would not be possible. Please donate to DAS.

Donations received will go directly to the bursary fund for low-income families to access our services.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
