Description of Organization

“MINDS has been caring for Persons with Intellectual Disability (PWIDs) and their families since 1962.? Grounded in the belief that all PWIDs have innate abilities and talents, MINDS is committed to empowering them and enhancing their quality of life, while advocating for greater inclusivity for PWIDs as a nation.? Today, MINDS is one of the largest charities in Singapore, serving more than 7,000 PWIDs and caregivers every year.??
With the key focus to expand community-based services, improving the employability of PWIDS, strengthening education, and engendering inclusive community living, MINDS offers a holistic range of services and programmes across the PWIDs’ lifespan.? These include schools, employment and training development centres, home-based care services and community-based services to cater to the physical, psychological, environmental and social needs of PWIDs and their families.??


Intended use of funds through the YFC programme

The funds will be used to support MINDS Programmes and Services, which will benefit our children, youths and adults with PWID in our schools, centres and entities.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

The YFC team will be invited to MINDS for an introduction to our programmes and services, as well as to learn more about PWIDs and befriend our beneficiaries.
