Problem Statement

There are many limitations in the existing befriending process: inefficient matching of befrienders and persons with disabilities, difficulty in sustaining befrienders’ motivation and challenges in meeting their increasing demand for disability-related knowledge.


The digital solution by Rainbow Centre aims to:

  • - Connect befrienders with persons with disabilities and match them effectively based on interests and proximity
  • - Build the capability of befrienders by providing training resources and educational content on disability issues and how to integrate persons with disabilities into communities.
  • - Sustain befrienders’ motivation along their journey by giving them a platform to chart their knowledge and growth


Effective matching of knowledgeable and motivated befrienders with persons with disabilities and the development of an efficient and progressive volunteer management process.
