Season 5 THTP Sidetalk #9 | The Hidden Heroes Behind APSN Cafe for All

By Halal Trip | 28, Sep, 2022

In this episode, we dropped by APSN and met up with the trainees behind APSN Café-for-All! The APSN Café-for-All, in collaboration with Andes by ASTONS, provides a real-life authentic environment for trainees with special needs from APSN Centre for Adults to train and prepare them before they head out for employment. If you're in the east, drop by their cafe on weekdays, 9.30 am to 4.30 pm at the Kembangan-Chai Chee Community Hub.
