Students from India and Singapore collaborating to showcase their talent through exchange programs is not something new. However when the learning journey includes a trip to the Singapore Association of the Deaf (SAD) to learn the Singapore Sign Language (which is different from the Indian sign language) it does make one stand up and take notice.
AiMS Global established in 2019, is a Singapore based start-up that prides itself on removing barriers between international and distantly located talents, creatively executing the exchange of ideas and involving a dialogue for an immersive experience.
Founded in early 2019, AiMS' Differently Abled Talent Learning Program (DATLP) got its first batch of students with special needs flying in from Kanpur, India for a truly global experience.
It is specially curated for special needs students to help them integrate with mainstream society through international learning enrichment including cultural, technical, social enhancements.
Besides the exchange program with SAD on sign language sharing DATLP includes a collaborative workshop with GIIS International at the School’s smart campus, a tour of the New Water plant to learn about Advanced Membrane Technologies, a visit to the National University of Singapore (NUS) for a project exhibition, a visit to the office of the High Commission of India to understand more about diplomacy and a stage performance at the Ramakrishna Mission.
The students will also visit the island nation’s heritage and modern sites to appreciate the Smart City and local culture.
