Please note that we are not able to accept book donations at the moment due to the overwhelming donations and space constraints. Book donations will resume in March 2021. Thank you.
Providing Sustainable Long Term Relief
Our micro-enterprise model provides caregivers and young adults with special needs the ability to start small businesses. Through a steady supply of a zero-cost product, the kiosks are a powerful and sustainable way for young adults with special needs to gain basic entrepreneurial skills with supportive caregivers.
Located Across Major Hospitals in Singapore
A pilot project that started in 2012, Dignity Mama has now grown to four stalls located in Singapore hospitals. Since then, we’ve kept 50 thousand books out of landfills and instead created employment opportunities for young adults with special needs.
