In July, ISCOS launched Project LEAP (Learning Environment Assistance Project), a new initiative which aims to assist student beneficiaries of the Yellow Ribbon Fund-ISCOS Fairy Godparent Programme through minor home refurbishment work and creation of home study areas.
As part of its corporate volunteerism, the Network For Electronic Transfers (Singapore) Pte Ltd (NETS), came on board to support Project LEAP. Fifty NETS staff volunteers, including its CEO, Mr Jeffrey Goh, assisted five families with a new home makeover on 11 and 14 July.
“NETS has been supporting ISCOS for a number of years and this year we wanted to do more. I am greatly encouraged by my staff who have enthusiastically volunteered their time to be involved in this meaningful programme. Project LEAP not only helps the families but provides a platform for our staff to give back to society. I sincerely believe our staff will be greatly blessed by such an experience,” said Mr Goh.
ImagineX Group (Singapore) also supported the project on 23 August by rallying eight volunteers who cleaned and repainted one home and installed a study corner. The successful collaboration with both organisations provided the beneficiaries with better living conditions and more conducive home study environments.
