Paws With a Purpose

Close your eyes and imagine a life where the simple act of commuting turns into an overwhelming challenge. In this reality, the loss of sight can steal your independence, making everyday tasks that once felt easy, now seem impossibly hard. Now, think about how a guide dog can help you live a life filled with hope, self-sufficiency, and the newfound freedom to navigate the world with ease.

Guide dogs are specially trained to assist people who are blind or have low vision. From avoiding obstacles to safely crossing the streets, guide dogs become the trusted allies that empower their blind users to lead lives filled with dignity and purpose.

In conjunction with International Guide Dog Day, which falls on 24 April, we invite you to join us from 1 March to 31 May 2024 to raise the next generation of guide dogs and celebrate the role they play in assisting people with vision impairment.

All donations to GDS during our campaign period till 31 May 2024 are matched dollar-for-dollar by the Tote Board. This means when you donate $100, GDS will receive $200 in total and your contribution will double in its impact.

100% of your donation goes towards a range of services that support the education, advocacy, and on-the-ground action that empower people with low vision or blindness.

We rely on donations from individuals like you to continue this important work. This includes work that inspires and empowers people with vision loss. In addition, your support will go towards helping us provide services that enhance the quality of life for people with blindness in Singapore through a range of rehabilitation programmes.

These priorities encompass beyond providing guide dogs to include teaching people with vision loss the skills needed to live independently, and working with community stakeholders to build a supportive society for the vision-impaired society.
