Formerly known as Society for the Physically Disabled, is the charity that promotes the interest, welfare and advancement of people with disabilities to help develop their potential to the fullest. Through over 20 programmes and services that encompass therapy, vocational skills training, employment support, assistive technology, early intervention, day care, educational and social support, we serve more than 5,000 people with congenital or acquired physical, sensory and learning disabilities today.
We were one of the partners for the “Count Me In” charity concert in Singapore. The funds raised from the concert went towards maximizing the potential of people with disabilities, so that they can learn to be self-reliant and independent. The concert featured the lauded Singapore Chinese Orchestra, directed by leading music director Tsung Yeh, and young vocalist Lauren Yeo, who held her own sold out solo concert at the Esplanade at the age of 9 and has performed in Carnegie Hall.
Agrocorp recently volunteered for a Sheltered Workshop at the SPD Ability Centre. 15 of us spent an entire day with 100 young and old people with disabilities, sponsored lunch for the beneficiaries and helped them pack over 2000 goodie bags for various events organized by SDP.
Project Smile is a volunteer-led organization working towards the empowerment of women and helping them lead a better life.
Project Smile is one of the organizations Agrocorp works very closely with for our CSR efforts.
Marking its 25th Year, Agrocorp supported the concert “Mystique7” by the Singapore Indian Orchestra and Choir at the Victoria Theater. The proceeds went towards support Project Smile, a support center for disadvantaged women.
We supported an internal donation drive among our employees on a 2:1 basis to support MILAAP, a crowdfunding site and raised more than $20,000.
These funds will be utilized to support farmers as well as to help solve the education and health problems faced by many in rural India. Milaap is India’s leading crowdfunding platform for personal and social causes.
Love Army for Somalia
We supported the humanitarian crisis when Somalia was faced with famine by donating to a cause in partnership with the Turkish Airlines. The aim of the cause was to charter planes to carry much needed food supplies to those who were in need in Somalia.
The first flight took off in March 2017. This project, entitled Love Army for Somalia, raises funds through the crowdfunding platform, GoFundMe.
