Stronger Forever Program
OUR PARTICIPANTS ARE AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING WE DO
The Stronger Forever Program recognizes the importance of people with disabilities and places emphasis on the individualized rights of their control and choices.
As part of the Stronger Forever program, our participants are supported in their dreams to live independently. This combines employment, recreational programs, fun activities, and life skills training.
The Stronger Forever Program aims to keep participants’ minds and bodies active in addition to work. So varied skills development activities such as living skills, arts, music, games, as well as health and fitness activities like sports and dance are inserted into our weekly programs.
With our living skill training, we hope that our participants will gain the confidence to mingle and to enjoy life and friendships within an inclusive community.
At DAPA our Daily program is tailored to cater to the needs of the participant. Below are some of the programs and training that our participants receive as a part of the Stronger Forever program
