Seeds by Be Kind SG (pilot) aims to provide young adults with special needs and their caregivers equal opportunities to participate fully in life and provide a sense of purpose and meaning. Through our program 'Nurture Potentials & Embrace Strengths', we expose them to a variety of age-appropriate art and life skill lessons to explore their hidden potentials and strengths. Eventually some of our youths will be empowered to have their own line of products that we will help to market and sell, giving them some income and micro-business opportunities. This program also supports their caregivers to explore their aspirations and improve their mental well-being.
In collaboration with Just Love Crafts, our parent-youth pairs learned the craft of quilling using upcycled magazine papers. In December 2021, we held a mini-exhibition in library @ orchard
Our parent-youth pairs put together moss plants to sell during festive seasons. Some of them picked up new skills like painting pebbles which were sold together with the moss plants.
We collaborated with Baguette 65 to organize a series of customized baking workshops for our caregivers. They learned to bake artisan bread for their families.
