Support Rainbow Centre’s Margaret Drive Campus Extension
Rainbow Centre Singapore is fundraising for an extension at its current Margaret Drive campus, to increase its capacity to serve more children on the waiting list and expand its intake for students up to 18 years old. The new purpose-built facility will serve 350 children aged 6 years and below in early intervention, and 120 children aged 7-18 years in special education and vocational training. It will also house a training academy for the social service sector to train professionals, parents/caregivers and volunteers, and an allied health professionals hub.
The building project is estimated to cost a total of $17 million, with co-funding from the Government. Rainbow Centre needs to raise about $6.5 million towards the project, which is targeted to complete in 2017.
Rainbow Centre Singapore is a Voluntary Welfare Organisation (VWO) that serves young people with a diverse range of moderate to severe developmental special needs, including Autism Spectrum Disorder and physical, visual and/or hearing disabilities; with many suffering from multiple disabilities. Founded in 1992, Rainbow Centre currently runs two Special Education (SPED) schools for students aged 7-18 years olds and two Early Intervention Programme (EIP) centres for children 2 months to 6 years old, at two campuses - Margaret Drive and Yishun Park.
