PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
Partnered with Persons with Disabilities, Project We Care @ SDSC aimed to bring the art of Boccia to staff of other social services agencies! This allows for more staff to be equipped to engage and promote sports and exercise amongst other seniors and youths with disabilities.
Project Tinker Thing embraced remote engagements by combining letter writing and their engineering skills! With a pen pal programme and games that promote physical and cognitive exercises, the team aims to promote active ageing amongst seniors.
ENVIRONMENT AND BIODIVERSITY
Equipped with knowledge from a general education module, a team of students adopted a sustainable approach to showcase the marine biodiversity in Singapore and guide interested organisers on how to conduct a coastal cleanup.
To me, community engagement is about doing what I can to make someone’s day! It can be things as simple as helping them with household chores or befriending them! Join me in my community engagement journey!
