Archipelago Consultancy gives back!
As part of our Corporate & Social Responsibility (CSR), we support initiatives that help the community and country.
We had participated in Project Inspirasi organised by students from Hwa Chong Institution. Projek Inspirasi is a student-run community project which aims to bring inspiration to the underprivileged children at Pertapis Children’s Home. Through the sharing session, we hoped the beneficiaries would be inspired to proactively shape their lives so that they can succeed in what they want to do and not be held back by pre-existing burdens or fears.
We had donated copies of The Mango Tree (braille volume) book and Hang Nadim and the Garfish book to the visually handicaped children schooling in Lighthouse School and the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH).
We had initiated a fund-raising drive – For each ‘Mina meets Cambridge’ book purchased, £1 goes to a bursary for needy students at at Newnham College, Cambridge.
As of April 2016, we’ve raised £500 for the Hidayah Amin Bursary. The first recipient gets a signed copy of ‘Mina meets Cambridge’ book.
We had actively volunteered/participated in:
Girl Guides Singapore. Being a former President’s Guide, our CEO gives back to guiding in whatever way she can. She is currently the consultant for the Girl Guides Centenary Stories (a nation-wide book project). Other contributions were being the emcee at Tea with the Queen of Brunei on 23 April 2014 and being a judge at the BP Quest 2013 and 2015.
