FOCUS Adventure Participated in NUSS Island Adventures!
FOCUS Adventure was privileged to be a sponsor of NUSS Island Adventures, a charity event jointly organised by The National University of Singapore Society (NUSS) and the Singapore Power Boat Association (SPBA). The charity event was a community outreach programme for 40 children from the Ang Mo Kio Family Service Centres (AMK FSC). Other sponsors of this event include ONE°15, the Sea Scouts and McDonalds. NUSS Island Adventures happened on Saturday, 20 October 2012. 15 staff from FOCUS Adventure and CAMP CHALLENGE showed their support for the charity and volunteered for this meaningful event.
The children from AMK FSC receive family and welfare services from the Centres and are part of their Youth Infinity (YI) programme, which aims to empower and connect the participating youths to the community. Their aim is to “Unleash the Infinite Potential of Youth”.
FOCUS Adventure has always been active in supporting underprivileged children and youths as part of our CSR programme. We are committed to be a catalyst for personal and interpersonal growth and change. Therefore, NUSS Island Adventures was a platform for us to discover the children’s hidden potential that will lead them to greater self-awareness and self-confidence!
For this event, FOCUS Adventure sponsored two yachts to ferry the children from ONE°15 to Lazarus Island. Upon arrival at the island, the children participated in two popular FOCUS Adventure’s activities, The Laser Combat Challenge! and The Kayaking Challenge! While having loads of fun, the children were taught important skills such as teamwork, trust, communication and confidence.
It was a priceless experience for both FOCUS Adventure and the children from AMK FSC. FOCUS Adventure plans to continue to support good causes for underprivileged children and take part in many more community involvement events. We are grateful to have such an extremely rewarding opportunity to be involved with the community and to support such excellent local cause!
