Did you know?
Many Singaporeans are experiencing social disconnectedness due to their physical/mental condition/s or caregiving duties deterring them from participating in the community.
There are approximately 32,000 people with disabilities in Singapore, and about 16% of our population are elderly. Many young adults with Autism are not eligible for shelter workshops and are left stranded at home. Let us lend our voices to help them fulfil their dreams.
In conjunction with NDP 2022, “Stronger Together, Majulah!”, join our differently-abled crafters to Dream Big as a Nation by adopting a Dream Big Singapore bear co-crafted by them and the community. Lend your hand, give them a voice, and empower our differently-abled crafters to build on their strengths, celebrate inclusivity, and enable them to achieve their dreams.
Every set comes with the "GO FOR IT" 37-day motivational journal which aims to bring you on a journey to understand yourself better and enable you to achieve your dreams alongside our crafters.
