About Us

Kits4Kids Foundation, a privately funded social enterprise was established by Prof Eric Lim and Ms Jessica Wang in 2003 with its vision started as early as 2000. In recognition of the fundamental importance of improving the livelihoods and well-being of the peoples with special needs, and the need to promote special education awareness as well as people-to-people contact through education, seminars, fellowships and other exchanges, the founders establish Kits4Kids Foundation on Oct 2005 in Singapore. The ultimate aim was to help bring about shared understanding and a sustainable future for people with special needs, children and adults. Kits4Kids Vision 2011 is “use the Foundation as one of the instruments to address issues of unequal education development and service providence across socio-economic disparities.”
