As part of our mission to overcome limitations and change perceptions, YMCA is sending a team of special needs individuals to conquer Mount Fuji for the first time. Over the next 3 months, we will challenge them to make the impossible, possible as they prepare for the journey up Mount Fuji.
This inaugural expedition to Mount Fuji is part of our Y Camp Challenge initiative – an outdoor adventure programme – that empowers our special needs clients through outdoor activities.
Since 1900s, YMCA has been strengthening the community by organising events for Persons with Special Needs.
Research conducted by National Council of Social Service (NCSS) found that 6 in 10 persons with disabilities feel socially excluded, rejected and are not given equal opportunities to contribute to society.
To break down their mental barriers, the Y Camp Challenge programme was launched to inspire confidence and self-esteem in those with special needs – that they may live out their fullest potential.
The YMCA Inclusive Climb 2019 is part of the YMCA Strong campaign to strengthen our clients holistically – body, mind and spirit.
We currently focus our strengthening efforts on the following external & internal clients.
We aim to raise $200,000 to fund this trip’s expenses as well as other initiatives in strengthening the special needs community in Singapore.
