SPECIAL BAKERS WITH DISABILITIES
The mooncakes are lovingly and meticulously baked by our friends at Metta Cafe and the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS). Shirley Heng, 30, who has intellectual disability, is an Assistant Baker at Metta Café, where she specialises in making Chinese-style pastries filled with bean paste. Besides baking, she also mentors Metta School students who receive on-the-job training at Metta Café. “I learn more things here,” says Shirley.
Danny Loke, 60, who has physical disability, is a packer at teapasar. His main responsibilities include packing and preparing teapasar’s products for retail and delivery. He is also the person in charge of packing the Gift Sets. Uncle Danny, as he is affectionately known in teapasar, has been at the company since January 2020.
The EV Mooncake Gift Set is presented by the i’mable Collective, an initiative by SG Enable that aims to create a marketplace for quality products made by persons with disabilities. The purchase of each set will go a long way in building a more inclusive society and enabling lives of persons with disabilities. Metta Café, MINDS and teapasar are members of the i’mable Collective.
