Our Story

Ryan and Debra’s first foray into the disability sector started with a dragon boat session for deaf people one weekend in 2012.
Then another. And another.
Since then, the duo have not stopped rowing. What started as a weekend project, Deaf Dragons, has now morphed into a sustainable venture with a bigger purpose – the social enterprise Society Staples is today.
When Ryan and Debra first started, they had one aim in mind: to use their love for dragon boating to combat condescending attitudes towards Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) in Singapore. Over time, their vision to build an inclusive Singapore has only grown.
