Donations to Singapore School for the Deaf

Donations to Singapore School for the Deaf

Singapore School for the Deaf (SSD) was established in 1963 to provide primary level education to Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing children.  It was closed in December 2017. The Singapore Association for the Deaf (SADeaf) is grateful for all the support that the community has given to the school over the few decades.  We are especially heartened by the generous donations that we have received to support the school programmes and needy students of the school.

With the closure of SSD, we have remaining funds from various donors. We would like to channel the remaining funds to another school under our association, Mountbatten Vocational School (MVS).  MVS was established in 1975 to provide vocational training to youths with various learning disabilities. It is an ITE Approved Training Centre and currently it serves 80 students, providing them with training in F&B Services, Food Preparation and Housekeeping.  The objective of the programme is to help the students learn relevant skills and be ready for employment.

Donors may reclaim the monies they have donated to SSD or give input to SADeaf’s intention to re-channel the donated funds to MVS by 30 September 2019.  If donors would like to seek a refund, please provide us with supporting documents such receipts from the school or the association.
