My NoNNa’s is a social enterprise that hires people with intellectual disabilities in Singapore.
Ms Geraldine Tan, Founder and CEO of the Italian comfort food chain, believes that individuals with intellectual disabilities should not stay at home and be allowed to withdraw into themselves; they should work and integrate with society. “When they stay at home, they deterioriate very rapidly. We want to pull them out of their shells and reintegrate them back into society and have an independent life.”
Geraldine’s vision for My NoNNa’s, which has branches at several schools in Singapore, is that the young men and women who love their food will also learn how to interact with people with disabilities, and in future hire and work alongside those with special needs.
