On 27 June 2017, DPA was present at official launch of 'Give Back 2017 - Inclusivity and Me' campaign at Ngee Ann Polytechnic. The campaign, part of the polytechnic's annual Give Back programme, aimed to better integrate its students with special educational needs (SEN) and to advocate for a more inclusive campus.
DPA set up disability specific inclusion booths that offered interactive and experiential sessions. Our Inclusion Ambassadors with disabilities were present to handle the booths and engage with the students.
DPA also conducted workshops for the staff of Ngee Ann Polytechnic to raise awareness and promote inclusion of people with disabilities.
Dr Lim Gaik Bee, co-chairman of the committee that spearheaded the campaign, noted the importance of an inclusive campus environment, saying: "Every person counts... We have to look beyond their disabilities to their abilities."
