Toiling under the hot sun, braving the hazards of their jobs and the equipments, the migrant workers in our country have without fail, contributed greatly to building our nation.
In appreciation of their efforts, the FOCUS Adventure CSR team organised our first ever CSR FUN day for over 70 of our migrant friends at FOCUS Adventure’s Sentosa Tanjong learning facility, together with ItsRainingRaincoats, and student volunteers from Global Indian International School (10 students) and ITE College East (15 students) on the 25th of February 2018.
The migrant workers were broken into teams together with the student volunteers, and were tasked to work hand in hand on the Incredible Sentosa Race! The race gave everyone a chance to enjoy the sights of Sentosa, while the challenges along the way allowed for greater interaction between students and migrant workers.
The programme ended off with everyone enjoying the Chinese New Year tradition of ‘Lo Hei’, together with a hearty lunch after a fun-filled morning spent exploring Sentosa. What was especially heart-warming was seeing the students sitting with our migrant friends eating together, and exchanging numbers and pictures on their handphones.
We believe that through our passionate drive for this programme, we have successfully broken through the hidden barrier between our migrant friends and youths, fostering teamwork and closer communication, teaching our future generation about compassion and awareness for the less fortunate and of course, making this programme a memorable and enjoyable FUN day for our migrant friends and students!
The CSR team look forward to creating more opportunities to make an impact on those in need, and to make the world a better place!
