Mamre Oaks’ vision and mission is to empower persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (namely the Special Persons or SPs) to lead lives of meaning, dignity and fulfilment through engaging activities at its day activity centre in Agape Village.
Founded by a group of friends who believe that persons with intellectual
disabilities, the weakest in any society, are gifts from God with their rights to a fulfilling life like anyone else.
Mamre Oaks aim to provide and create an environment where the SPs are welcomed, respected and valued regardless of their disabilities and differences. Being an integral part of the Catholic Church, Mamre Oaks will carry out its businesses according to the Church’s Catholic Social Teachings. Mamre Oaks is founded on Catholic soil and warmly welcomes all regardless of their race and religion.
