Fortitude Culina Pte Ltd
Social Giving & Engagement
Our mission is to build a compassionate Singapore with cuisines prepared from the heart.
We empower the Visually Impaired community through free culinary, pastry & baking skills development and for those who are more talented, we offer vocational training and employment in our cafe (opening in mid Sept 2019, hiring two visually impaired chefs).
Part of the net profits from the cafe will be plough back to support skills development program for the visually impaired.
The Founder - Aaron Yeoh
In 2013, I set up a Non Profit Organisation, Etch Empathy with a mission to to serve ASEAN vulnerable communities in achieving their aspirations.
We work directly with communities, volunteers, charities and private sectors to tackle global needs such as reducing prejudices and inequality for the visually impaired.
In 2017, I setup Fortitude Culina, which in coming Sept will manage a cafe, providing employment for the visually impaired as chefs.
In the same year, I assisted in setting up a charity, Cycling Without Age Singapore to support the well-being of seniors and build inter-generation bonding through trishaw cycling.
