Corporate Social Responsibility
Silicon Connection is committed to long-term partnerships with key stakeholders to achieve greater outreach for sustainable good causes. Our CSR initiatives are focused on empowering communities to improve lives, and environment conservation.
World Vision Child Sponsorship
Since 2003, Silicon Connection has been actively supporting World Vision Child Sponsorship Programme. For every full-time employee, Silicon Connection commits to sponsor a child. Todate, we have more than 20 sponsored children from Cambodia, Indonesia, Mongolia, Nepal, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam. We take time to correspond with our sponsored children through e-letters and the message would then be conveyed to them, and visit the children from one country annually.
Besides sponsorship, we also contribute to World Vision Life-Changing Gift Catalogue at year end that will bless the other communities working with World Vision. We encourage all employees to donate to children and families in need, to give a gift and change a life.
Protect Our Environment
SIlicon Connection encourages all our employees to practise proper disposal of our electrical scrap (printers, cables, phones, batteries, computers etc); and to avoid damping harmful electronic waste into our general garbage or incinerators, be it at personal or company level.
With every step we take in contributing to environment sustainability, we hope to make our world a better living place for everyone and our future generations.
Giving Back To The Community
Our Company volunteered at Willing Hearts, a non-profit charity wholly run by volunteers who operate a kitchen that prepares, cooks and distributes about 5,000 freshly cooked meals daily, 365 days a year. The beneficiaries include the elderly and the disabled with mobility difficulties, as well as low income and other families in need. Silicon Connection offered our services in the food operations and helped in the transportion of delivering the meals to the various food distribution points and to the families in over 40 locations islandwide.
We visited Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home at Thomson, a nursing home for more than 100 elderly folks. Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home was founded in mid 1960s by the late Madam Lee Ah Mooi, to provide affordable eldercare for the sick and needy in Singapore. The Home, currently managed by the 2 sons of Madam Lee, has a medical support team consisting of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dieticians and pharmacists to take care of the residents there. During our visits, we sponsored goodie bags consisting of toothbrush, toothpaste, biscuits, nutritional beverages and other essential items for all the residents. As one of our visit was on a Christmas Eve, we hope that our gifts and support brought some festive cheers to the residents. as well as the caregivers, at the peaceful Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home.
Silicon Connection is a Silver Sponsor of World Vision’s Race for Relief.
