Systematic Holdings Collaboration with MINDS
Systematic Holdings, CBM’s laundry subsidiary, recently partnered with the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) to run a pilot program providing employment opportunities & training for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities (PWIDs).
With plans to expand their responsibilities and the respective individual’s abilities and desires, this 6-month pilot programme would allow individuals from 15 beneficiaries to work with other employees of Systematic to fold clean linens before they are returned to Systematic’s clients. This may include operation of the various machines and equipment, as well as preparation work for new laundry such as sewing RFID tags for uniforms.
Systematic Holdings is proud to provide an avenue for MINDS schools’ alumni to empower themselves, as well as integrate themselves with the rest of society.
The Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) was founded in May 1962 by a group of philanthropists who saw the need to provide equal opportunities for children with intellectual disabilities to receive education and later, to be integrated as contributing and responsible citizens in Singapore.
