“I don’t need easy. I just need possible”

-Bethany Hamilton-

United Voice created a Social Enterprise in 2003 to provide a link to new employment for unemployed members. The proceeds are used to pay monthly salary, SOSCO, EPF and an annual bonus for the employees. The success of this enterprise is testimony to the potential inherent in persons with learning disabilities and how they can help themselves with the right motivation and opportunities.

Sara–Anne Ng KeXin

Sarah Anne

Hi, my name is Sara–Anne Ng KeXin.

I am 22 years old. I have Trisomy 21 which means I am a Down Syndrome child. Thank God I am born strong and healthy and my obstacles are my features, height and a neuro divergent. When I was a child, my parents did not send me to a public school.

As a young adult now, my mother has managed to expose me to my working life. Now working at UV three times a week focusing on self advocacy. While at UV, I have learnt to help out at cookies making and weaving (Japanese Saori).

I love to weave and it is a new skill that I have acquired with some training. After completing the weaving, my friends will sew and stitch to produce beautiful pouches, table mats and key chains out of the weaved cloth. I am also happy to attend DET classes. Best of all is I have lots of new friends and get to have lunches, outing and fun time with them.

Sara-Anne’s Mom says…
“I thank God and am very happy that Sara is now working in UV for the past one year. She has slowly matured to be a fine young lady. She used to be very shy and unapproachable. She now looks forward to work and see her friends. Her main drive in work is the weaving.”

Siti Farhah Azyan

Siti weaving

Siti joined United Voice in 2008. For her, employment at UV is very meaningful because it provides her the chance to socialise with other adults with similar ability. Going to work also makes her feel ‘normal’. UV has brought out and encouraged her reveal her potentials. Among her significant achievements, she won the second place in MRCB painting contest in 2009.

In 2015, she represented Malaysia in the Special Olympic which was held in Los Angeles, for bowling in 2015, where she won 2 bronze and 1 silver medals.

Siti’s Mom says…
“Siti looks very much like any young lady to the unsuspecting eye; she is friendly and can be a bit outspoken. Despite her learning difficulty, Siti was active in sports and always eager to participate in co-curricular activities during her school days.

Siti was lucky to be chosen to attend a certificate program in culinary at Sunway College in 2004.”

Clement Ooi

Clement Ooi

Clement Ooi Kit Meng was born in 1989. He is an artist of few words because of his autism. From an early age he loved doodling intricate patterns and designs, evincing a wonderful flair for drawing and an amazing photographic memory and creativity.

He has come a long way since then and is now an established artist in his own right. He draws with bold strokes and his art are lively, vibrant, whimsical and expressive. His distinctive style has won him many admirers among art buyers, artists, and curators, locally and overseas. He has risen above his disability and has won a slew of awards. Including from the Brian Ayers Memorial Exhibition in USA.

Clement’s Parents say…
“Clement has worked in United Voice since 2015.  Being in United Voice has taught him that he has to get up early, be at work on time, follow instructions and get along with his colleagues.  He has learnt to relate to his colleagues and regard them as his “UV” friends, always looking forward to outings with them.  Since working in UV Clement has learned to go for lunch on his own and pay for his food. He can enter any mini-market and buy the items that he wants. These are essential living skills that he has learnt. We are confident that Clement will continue to mature as he works in UV.”
