Our Story


ThisAbility is a social enterprise created by four-like minded individuals to offer products and services related to flowers online. As the saying goes, “What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity,” Hence, our online floral store will definitely put on a smile to our social mission and social impact with the People with Disabilities.

Examples of our products and services include flower terrariums and event decoration services respectively. In addition to our products and services, ThisAbility will also hold workshops to teach the public more about our beautiful flower arrangements.

The business transactions will be held online on the store’s official website (http://henriettateooojw.wix.com/thisability) and social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook.

ThisAbility will make use of the work integration model whereby 30% of the staff will be People with Disabilities (PWDs) who are wheelchair bound or have mental illnesses. We want to employ them from the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled Singapore (MINDS) as we plan to work very closely with MINDS in this project.

For our first year of operations, we will have 10% of our staff being People with Disabilities. By our third year of operation, we would definitely want to hit our goal of having 30% of our staff being People with Disabilities.

ThisAbility will also make use of the plough back profit model whereby 10% of the company’s profit will be donated to Movement for the Intellectually Disabled Singapore (MINDS) every month. This is especially so because MINDS, our main partner and collaborator, will be helping us by giving us a space in their organisation so that we can equip their inmates with some floral-making skills and techniques to develop them and make them ready to work in our online floral store.
