Charity Outing with Child at Street 11
What better way to close the work week than to contribute to a meaningful cause?
On 11 May 2018, we joined the Energy Market Company (EMC) to spend a morning with young children from Child at Street 11, a centre that provides quality early childhood education for children from low income families since 2006. Every year, EMC organizes an outing for the children, and staff from participating Market Participants join as volunteers.
Entrusted with children aged 2-4 years old, our team set off to the National Gallery where they enjoyed a few hours of play and exploration of interactive exhibitions with them. It may have been a short period of time, but the children have brought our colleagues much joy and laughter. We hope that they too brought back with them great memories from the outing.
Thank you EMC for organising this event. This is a great opportunity for the industry to come together for a good cause and we are glad to be part of it!
Our Red Dot Power family believes in giving back to the community. Last year, we supported the POSB Passion Run to help children from challenging backgrounds and Pimp My Tuk Tuk, where our CEO and COO personally visited rural communities in Sri Lanka where basic necessities such as electricity and transport to school are a luxury. We sponsored solar powered battery units for lighting and electronic equipment for a village without power.
