This is where Society Staples step in to contribute and effect change. With the dream of progressing Singapore towards a more inclusive and cohesive country, each of our subsidiaries overcomes a different challenge and approaches a different initiative.
“Experiences Raise Awareness And Educate Society About PWDs, Changing Mindsets And Subsequently Behaviours”
The most significant challenge to building an inclusive and compassionate society is changing the attitudes and mindset of individuals. PWDs often feel very isolated and disconnected from the larger society, and also perceived as having limited capabilities and contributions to society. In reality, they aspire to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, but most people have overlooked or even misinterpreted them.
Our Experiences seek to build closer connection points between individuals and PWDs by showing that everyone is more similar than different. By enhancing an individual’s capacity to care and practice compassion towards others, barriers faced in understanding, communicating and getting along with everyone are reduced, effectively making spaces we commonly frequent (schools, workplaces, homes, communities) much more inclusive.
There is no better activity that combines doing good, gaining precious value and seeing immediate positive contributions to society so naturally.
