The new Enabling Lives Initiative (ELI) - a partnership between SG Enable and the Tote Board - will run from this year to 2024, taking over the previous Tote Board Enabling Lives Initiative that ran for five years from 2015.
It aims to fund projects that will create scalable and impactful innovations for people with disabilities and bring about better outcomes for them.
It hopes to build on the National Council of Social Service's See The True Me public education campaign that was launched in 2016.
The campaign encouraged Singaporeans to look beyond the disability and see people with disabilities for who they are and what they can do.
Tote Board chairman Moses Lee said at the event that people with disabilities and their caregivers have faced additional challenges amid the Covid-19 pandemic, given their more complex and diverse needs and the strain from staying at home more.
