We started with a vision that children with special needs can be trained to maximise their potential and become self-reliant and dignified individuals. In 2014, we collaborated with AWWA school and introduced craft making as part of life skills training. The school provides special education to children with multiple disabilities and children with autism, aged 7 to 18. Handcrafted products were designed to match the students’ level of skills.
The partnership undertook a series of projects including the making of 10,000 paper carnations for Mother’s Day event in 2015 and fostered teamwork of students and caregivers through these projects. We reach out to caregivers with the belief that they can still contribute and be economically gainful to better provide for their family. Currently, we are working with Ngee Ann Polytechnic Maker's Academy to train a group of students on leathercraft. We hope to launch their leathercraft products soon.
50% of profits will go to the relevant school/agency and caregivers will be rewarded for their work.
All products are handmade, assembled and/or packaged with sincerity by the special needs community and their caregivers. We hope through consistent training, they can gain employment upon graduation. We undertake projects to provide students with hands on experience and reach out to caregivers with the belief they can still contribute and be economically gainful to better provide for their family.
We hope through your support, the students can gain confidence and look forward to an independent and meaningful life. Every product is made and/or packed with love by the students with special needs.
