EQUAL is a charity with IPC status that offers horse-based therapy to youth, persons with special needs, families and the elderly with clinical depression and dementia.
Known as equine-assisted learning, it is a pedagogy that is well-established in Europe, North America and Oceania. Through activities in our farm-like setting located off Thomson Road, our clients develop social-emotional skills such as managing impulsivity, persistence, empathy, self-awareness, confidence and resilience under the guidance of our instructors. Unlike other forms of counselling or therapy, our clients develop these skills through experiential learning in a unique, outdoors and non-clinical setting.
We serve 600 beneficiaries every year from schools, children's homes, nursing homes and other social service organisations. We are a Charity, Institution of Public Character, Company Limited By Guarantee, and member of the National Council of Social Service. Our auditor is RSM Chio Lim LLP and corporate secretary is Alpine Corporate Services.
