Description of Organization

At Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd (GDS), we believe that people with vision impairment should not be limited by their disability. We aim to enhance the quality of life for people with vision loss through a range of rehabilitation programmes. Since our inception in 2006, our services have grown beyond providing guide dogs to include teaching people with vision loss the skills needed to live independently, and working with community stakeholders to build a supportive society for the vision impaired. To date, we have successfully trained and paired 10 guide dog teams in our history, of which 5 are currently active.


Intended use of funds through the YFC 2023 programme

Funds raised will go towards a range of services that support the education, advocacy, and on-the-ground action that empower people with low vision or blindness, as well as the provision and training of guide dogs.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

We can set up an intimate session to share more about our organisation and how you choosing GDS as beneficiary will help the vision impaired community.
