VALUES IN ACTION FOR SCHOOLS
Collaborate with SPD for your school’s Values in Action programme.
SPD is a local charity set up to help people with disabilities of all ages to maximise their potential and integrate them into mainstream society. By collaborating with SPD, students will have greater awareness of the different types of disabilities, obtain skills in interacting with people with disabilities and understand how they can offer help. The experience will enhance students’ development as socially responsible citizens who can contribute meaningfully to the community.
Disability Awareness Talk
Students will learn about types of disabilities and how they can offer their help to people with disabilities
Disability Simulation Activities
Students will experience the challenges faced by a person with disabilities through activities such as wheelchair simulation
Tour of SPD Ability Centre
Students will visit the SPD Ability Centre and learn about the different programmes and services available to help people with disabilities be more self-reliant and independent
Interaction with People with Disabilities
Students can be involved in activities such as sports & packing of goodie bags with our beneficiaries to interact with them
Note: In view of the COVID-19 situation, certain activities will be conducted virtually.
How your school can help
Set up an online fundraising campaign to raise funds for SPD
Head over to https://www.giving.sg/spd and set up your very own fundraising page for SPD. Students can share their thoughts on supporting people with disabilities through videos, drawings or words on the page and encourage others to make a donation to SPD.
Organise a charity event and donate the proceeds to SPD
It can be a bake sale, mini carnival or anything your students can dream up. SPD will guide your students in the planning process and provide logistics such as donation boxes, brochures if required.
Participate in SPD fundraising events
SPD organizes various fundraising events e.g. SPD Charity Hongbao, flag day annually. Students can choose to participate in any of the events.
Collaboration is suitable for pre-schools to university students. SPD will customise the program accordingly to suit the students’ age.
