Description of Organization

“A registered charity with the National Council of Social Service (NCSS), Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd (GDS) is a social service organisation formed in 2006. We serve people with vision impairment (VI) and are the only organisation in Singapore to provide guide dogs. We strive to enhance the quality of life and empower people with VI to be more self-reliant through various rehabilitative programmes. This includes training on commuting safely, managing daily tasks independently and teaching assistive technology.


Intended use of funds through the YFC 2023 programme

The funding will be used to fund the rehabilitation programmes that we offer to our vision impaired clients.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

We organise outreach talks for students who work with us to help them gain a better understanding of our organisation. This enables them to support our mission and to learn more about the vision impaired community, as well as how they can contribute to the cause.
