It’s 2021, and inclusivity, above all else, should be one of the values at the core of whatever we do. For the longest time, the differently-abled have lived in our world, so now, more than ever, is the time to make little differences to correct that.

Creating steps towards inclusivity is at the heart of what social enterprise Project Dignity does, and Dignity Kitchen is just one of the many initiatives designed for the beneficiaries. It closes in on the training and teaching of those with mental, social, and physical disabilities in order to help them better assimilate and adapt to the working field, especially in food and beverage.

Some ways you can participate are taking up cooking classes for local cuisine and learn from these chefs, or even gather the whole crew at your workplace for a team bonding cook out. Other programmes covered by Project Dignity also include events related to learning and outreach, some even in practice at major hospitals.

In their new space at 69 Boon Keng Road, Dignity Kitchen’s got a spanking fresh premise that’s spruced up and welcomes visitors with open arms. Aside from the fact that people of varying abilities mend the stalls, there’s also a whole lot of tech incorporated into kitchen’s operations.

This comes as a great example of integrating technology for good and to aid and improve the differently-abled among us. Some instances include cash-free payment, as well as an independent bot that roams freely and assists customers with any need they might have. And don’t we love to see it.
