Overseas Service Learning

Service learning include Community Involvement Program CIP and Values in Action VIA. Due to the nature of our business, we travel to many remote places in Asia and South East Asia, we come across villages and interact with the local communities. There are lots of meaningful community service works we can offer to the local communities such as teaching of English, teaching of basic Information Technology, setting up of a library system, construction of Solar Energy facilities, construction of communal toilet, construction of drainage system for farm irrigation, and so on.

We deals with the community directly without going through a third party (i.e. Travel company) thereby reducing the business cost of establishing the links and contacts. We also has good relation and connection with the local government particularly Malaysia (Kota Tinggi district government ) , Indonesia (Riau Island) , Thailand (Kanchanaburi and Petcheburi province) and China (Guangdong Jiangmen & Qingyuan). All the above regions are relatively backward and under developed but they are easily accessible from Singapore.

One of the Key Service Learning program we offer is the “Gift of Sight” where we will bring along optometrists to the site to assist in eye-sight checks, after which we give the villagers free spectacle (re-cycle glasses where we collect consistently together with schools) Some of the GOS projects we have been to include Johor Mawai, Thailand Krabi, Laos, and Indonesia Batam. Some of the schools involved in such program consistently include Henderson Sec, Queenstown Sec, Ngee Ann Sec , Crescent Girls and so on.
