Our vision is to provide people with intellectual disabilities with vocational and appropriate trainings such as basic living skill and self development so that they can be self independent thus building self confidence and becoming contributors to society. We believe in “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.
With the various training and instructions provided by trainers in our Sheltered Workshop, these intellectually disabled individuals are now able to carry out various tasks to contribute towards a variety of sub-contracting work extended to Eden Handicap Service Centre Bhd by commercial enterprises.
The training programs are specially designed to provide a non-competitive environment for the intellectually disabled people to work in, just like any other normal individuals. It is in this Sheltered Workshop that these intellectually disabled individuals acquire social skills, interpersonal skills, job skills as well as character and personality development.
These skills acquired by them and the ability to be productive through the work they perform on a daily basis have brought about positive changes in their lives. Many of them who were once seen to be without hope now have a new sense of purpose in lives.
Sheltered Workshop for Intellectually-Challenged Women
Our collaboration with Soroptimist International Penang gave birth to the Sheltered Workshop for intellectually-challenged women. The success of this collaboration has opened doors to intellectually-challenged women to step into an environment that is loving, friendly and filled with numerous opportunities for them to learn new things including character development, self confidence and simple vocational skills. Our aim is to first equip them with skills and empower them so that in due time many will be gainfully employed and live meaningful and independent lives.
