Beyond The Usual
Currently, our society lack of knowledge and awareness regarding the intellectual disabled community. They face problems such as lack of appropriate training and education, unequal and unfair treatment when it comes to work, and lack of financial aid.
Beyond the Usual, an application specifically catered for the intellectual disabled community where we provide a platform to connect the intellectual disabled community and the public. The application allows the intellectual disabled to seek for jobs, financial aid, or even reach out to volunteers for help. It also provides insight on intellectual disabilities thus increasing the awareness and knowledge of society on intellectual disabilities.
For our project, there is no organization involved. However, we have visited one NGO for the intellectual disabled (IQ70) located at No. 118, Jalan Gasing, Bukit Gasing, 46000 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
We hope our application will be able to help the intellectual disabled community to solve their problems. We also hope this application will be endorsed by Jabatan Kebajikan Malaysia as the government will be able to do more when it comes to helping them.
For our UN SDG, our project addresses 4 goals: Good health and well being, Quality education, Decent work and economic growth and Reduced inequalities. These goals are based on helping the intellectual disabled community.
