If you have no disabilities, you may not have considered the financial, psychological, and emotional ramifications of being unable to do things that regular healthy people do automatically. If you appear physically healthy, you may be unaware of the painful discrimination that people with disabilities face on a daily basis in all aspects of life. People with disabilities do not want to be dependent on others; they too want to be self-sufficient and to be able to live with dignity & mastery.

At FDS, we believe that the most effective form of assistance fosters self-efficacy, the belief that our friends with disabilities can set and achieve goals and master daily tasks. Our goal is to empower our friends with disabilities to achieve maximum level of sustainable independence as contributing, responsible, and equal members of society.

We enable our friends with disabilities through training and imparting valuable life skills, from development of creative products, managing administrative duties, training to sales. All of which are valuable skills that can help them earn some income and hopefully move towards financial independence.

Currently, we have over 150 friends with disabilities at FDS, we want to help them become achievers. However, we need your help to achieve our goals so we can continue to provide support, training, workshop space, tools and equipment for our friends with disabilities. We invite you to donate generously to this cause.

Thank you.
