Rachel Tan Wei-Lin looks like any other ordinary young adult among her peers. However, the 21-year old is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at a young age and face basic challenges such as social interactions with people around her. Thankfully for Rachel, she transitioned to [email protected] programme for youths with special needs upon her graduation from Metta School. For Rachel, the new role was a dream come true as that could mean unleashing her creativity and self-expression in the world of colours.

As Rachel spends her youth with her equally like-minded and cheerful colleagues, she has also improved on her interaction skills and ability to adapt to new changes in the environment. She has opened up to her mentors and gained more courage to ask for assistance from the people around her.

With proper training and guidance, youths like Rachel make progress to their social interactions with people around them. Metta Alumni Care aims to equip special needs youths with life skills that promote integration, independence and employment. Our mission is to provide equal access to enriching artistic endeavours for these youths, while creating related training-cum-employment opportunities under a sustainable framework.

You can help make a difference today by supporting the operational costs of running arts programme and services for our youths with special needs. Why not Give A Little Gift Today?
