We welcomed our first Guide Dog Mobility Instructor (GDMI), back to Singapore in 2020. Christina had undergone two years of training in Melbourne, Australia and is our first local certified trainer. She will train and pair potential guide dog teams, and conduct annual reviews of our current working teams. Now that GDS has its own GDMI, problems that clients have with their guide dogs can be resolved more readily. We look forward to providing more access to our Guide Dog Programme.
Ms Christina Teng became the first Singaporean certified to be a guide dog mobility instructor in 2020.
GDS is a non-profit voluntary welfare organisation, and has been accorded Charity status by the Commissioner of Charities. We are registered with the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) as an associate member and holds an Institute of Public Character status.
