Pimp My Tuk Tuk ... Sri Lanka, here we come!
On September 14th our CEO, Mr. Vijay Sirse, and COO, Mr. Edward Hardman, will travel to Sri Lanka to take part in an event called Pimp My Tuk Tuk. A Tuk Tuk is a popular mode of transportation, in many Asian countries. Paired with another team member, they will personally ride these Tuk Tuks across the country of the course of 8 days, during which they will visit local communities and centers where PMTT has made donations to help the local people. PMTT also supports Food from the Heart in Singapore, and a portion of money raised go towards this local Singapore charity.
Our goal, as RDP family, is to personally make an impact in the lives of people who come from challenging backgrounds, be these people living without electricity in rural communities or children who lack transport options to commute to and from their schools. As part of PMTT 2017, RDP has sponsored solar powered battery units for lighting and electronic equipment for a village without power in rural Sri Lanka.
Pimp My Tuk Tuk is a philanthropic initiative spearheaded by Singapore based professionals, supporting the Foundation of Goodness which is a leading charity in Sri Lanka and Red Dot Power is one of its main sponsors. Aside from this being part of our Corporate Social Responsibility effort, our senior officers will also personally fund their trip to cover their transport and living expenses.
At Red Dot Power, we realize that our success is derived by the support of communities where we have a footprint. We also hope that more businesses will join us in giving back to their respective communities where they operate.
We have many other CSR initiatives either currently being executed or in the pipeline and invite you to accompany us in our journey!
