Lack of Employment for Youths with Muscle Dystrophy
Some MDAS youth members were noticed idling aimlessly at home and not suitable for employment due to lack of motivation and direction. To make matters worse, they became more withdrawn due to further deterioration of their health condition. This led to the loss of Self-worth and purpose of living.
Creating a programme to prepare the youths for their transition to work
The BRIDGE programme aims to nurture and build the capacity and capabilities of individuals with muscular dystrophy and prepare them for suitable employment.
The programme offers a holistic and customised curriculum to allow individuals to build up self-confidence, social, life and work skills in preparation for their transition to work.
Individuals with muscular dystrophy are able to grow in capabilities and self-skills and are able to take on work projects.
