Guide Dogs Singapore: Celebrating International Guide Dogs Day


In collaboration with International Guide Dogs Day, Guide Dogs Singapore is hosting a campaign that targets to raise $100,000, to train and form two new guide dog teams and to provide new route training for the visually impaired. The donation will enable Guide Dogs Singapore to train twenty of their members to travel on a new set of route independently.

Established in 2006, the non-profit welfare organisation was founded with the mission to help the visually impaired enhance their quality of life by providing mobility training and pairing suitable candidates with guide dogs. In addition to its training programmes, Guide Dogs Singapore has also succeeded in encouraging more than 250 establishments to become guide-dog friendly.

In line with the celebrations, a series of activities including the Mascot Competition and Learn with A Guide Dog Mobility Instructor have been rolled out. Standing out from the list of activities is Dine/Shop with A Cause. When shopping with or dining at any of Guide Dogs Singapore’s partners, a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to support the organisation’s cause. Some dining establishments have in fact, created unique dishes and drinks that are in tribute of the campaign. The donation drives first kicked off in April, and will end as late as this July.

“Every day, guide dogs and professionals in the field work quietly to help people who are blind or have visual impairment,” says Ms Vanessa Loh, General Manager of Guide Dogs Singapore. “We are highly appreciative of our supporters, which include partners, donors and volunteers, for believing and contributing to our cause. As a society, we can do a lot more to encourage people with visual impairment to live their lives beyond their disability.”
