DON8URI's co-founders, Ai Ling (Deaf) & Sylvia (Hearing) will be participating in Relay Majulah to raise funds for President's Challenge and its 67 supported charities such as Deaf Sports Association (Singapore). Both are also running to create greater awareness of the deaf community & for a truly inclusive Singapore where Singapore Sign Language (SgSL) can be recognised as Singapore's 5th official language.
DON8URI is a F&B social enterprise which advocates for social integration of deaf individuals by providing them gainful employment with the ultimate social mission to equip them with the relevant skills and eventually the capability to embark on their respective entrepreneurial journey to pay it forward.
For Ai Ling and Sylvia, they envision a truly inclusive Singapore where Singapore Sign Language (SgSL) will be recognised as Singapore's 5th official language. Support them in their efforts to build a more inclusive Singapore by donating via their campaign page below.
About the Charity
The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for charities selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society. Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. In 2012, under the leadership of former President Tony Tan Keng Yam, the Challenge was expanded to go beyond fundraising by including volunteerism and social entrepreneurship. In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment.
