The Riding for the Disabled Association Singapore (RDA Singapore) provides equine-assisted therapy (also known as hippotherapy) to children and adults with physical and mental disabilities.
We are the only charity in Singapore that provides this therapy and sessions are given free of charge.
The Para cycling Federation of Singapore (PCFS), formerly known as the Handcycling Association of Singapore (HAS), is a non-profit national disability sports association. It is dedicated to the development of disabled athletes by promoting para cycling as a competitive sport, as a recreational activity and as a means of rehabilitation for persons with disabilities. Para cycling is a recognised sport and medal event at the Paralympics, and is also regarded as a form of alternative physiotherapy for those suffering from permanent or other disabilities such as cerebral palsy, stroke, etc.
Athletics has been part of the Paralympic Games since 1960 and always attracts the largest number of spectators. The sport offers a wide range of competitions and events and is open to male and female athletes in all impairment groups. So, whether you want to see athletes run 100m in just over 10 seconds, marvel at a high jumper with one leg clearing 2 metres, or a thrower propelling a discus nearly 50 metres, this is the sport for you.
Resilience and the Growth Mindset are critical for learning and managing the stressors that come with the pursuit of excellence.
The Paralympic sport of Goalball provides a thriving example of how the most challenging goals can be met when individuals work together to develop a strategy for success. Your team would be guided by our athletes with visual impairment (No kidding!) as they physically and emotionally cope with the challenges presented by the game.
The learning doesn’t stop after the game ends. They will also learn to apply the same thinking skills associated with Resilience and the Growth Mindset to your organization’s context, and to Life.
