Student Visits to Fuji Xerox Singapore
Fuji Xerox recognises that youths are the future of our society and has been in partnership with various charity organisations, secondary schools and institutions.
Each year, Fuji Xerox hosts several student visits. The objectives of the corporate tour is to allow students to have a better understand of our business, technology and green practices while at the same time learn more about the working environment. These tours offer them an insight into the corporate world and help to prepare them for the work force.
"The students enjoyed themselves, learnt a lot and experienced what it was to work in a professional environment." said Jason Tan, Senior Youth Adviser of Student Advisory Centre
Sandwich Making Workshop
Besides corporate visits, Fuji Xerox Singapore also conducts nutrition workshops for primary school students as a Student Advisory Centre Lunch Box Fund partner. In these interactive workshops, students are taught the importance of food and nutrition. With such knowledge, they can then better utilise their Lunch Box Fund food coupons for a balanced meal during recess. In addition to working on specially created activity books, students also don their chefs hats and have a go at making healthy sandwiches! With loaves of wholemeal bread and aprons sponsored by Gardenia, the students had a great time preparing and decorating their sandwiches. To date, Fuji Xerox Singapore has conducted such workshops for close to 100 students.
We provide support to a variety of initiatives not only in the local community but also to overseas communities which are in need of development. With Habitat for Humanity, we have embarked on build projects to eliminate poverty housing in Batam.
These build projects go beyond monetary donations and are aligned to Fuji Xerox’s belief that volunteerism plays a big part in sustaining CSR programmes. Besides sponsoring material costs, our staff also travels to Batam to participate in the home building process together with the home partners. Work on the ground includes laying bricks, mixing cement, transportation of build materials and digging of earth for the septic tank.
A strong sense of participation and contribution is developed during the building process and new relationships are formed with the home partners. Being able to witness the structure of the house taking form after a day of work makes the experience especially rewarding for our volunteers.
So far, 30 volunteers from FXS have gone on the build trips to Batam, with the next batch of 40 staff ready for trips in January 2013.
Since the launch of the programme, we have received tremendous support from the management and staff alike.
“Batam Build has helped me to appreciate what I have, and also the fact that no man is an island. We need to look out for one another and always be ready to lend a helping hand.” – Stephanie Gomes Tay, Credit Management Officer
“I believe that as leaders, we have to "walk the talk" and set a good example by volunteering ourselves first. I shared with my team (25 staffs) and encouraged them to contribute to this meaningful event.” – Willie Lim, Senior Manager, Value and Innovation Business Group.
Charity Movie Screening
On 7th November 2012, Fuji Xerox Singapore held our annual Charity Movie Screening event at Suntec City. Response was overwhelming as more than 1000 staff, customers and partners turned out in support of a meaningful cause.
Guests not only had the chance to catch the blockbuster film – Skyfall, but were also treated to a fun night of activities such as shooting games and photo taking opportunities with our pseudo James Bond and his Bond girl.
A total of $27,000 was raised at the event and the full sum will be donated to Habitat for Humanity under the Batam Build Initiative. Fuji Xerox Singapore will continue to support Habitat’s build projects so that happiness can skyfall upon those who need it.
Charity Golf Event
The annual Fuji Xerox Charity Golf Event hopes to provide a platform for our senior management, staff and customers to pit their skills against one another and to collectively drive home the message of supporting a good cause. On 6th September 2012, 140 golf enthusiasts took to the course at Raffles Country Club.
As a recognition of the golfers’ efforts and in order to encourage everyone to do more for charity, Fuji Xerox Singapore also donated $200 for every Birdie and $400 for every Eagle recorded in the tournament.
The golfers were treated to dinner after the tournament where they had the opportunity to witness the build project undertaken by Fuji Xerox Singapore and also to understand more about Habitat for Humanity from their National Director, Mr Yong Teck Meng.
With the strong support of our customers, we successfully raised $25,000 for Habitat for Humanity.
Activity at Sunbeam Place
Besides partnering Singapore Children’s Society for our Doing Well, Doing Good programme. Fuji Xerox Singapore also organised a day of activity with the children staying at Sunbeam Place. A team of 13 volunteers spent an afternoon of fun with the children as the children learnt how to build a terrarium of their own and also had a mini tele-sports match amongst themselves.
“It was certainly a very meaningful event. I believe the children at Sunbeam Place thoroughly enjoyed themselves and so did we. It brought the ‘kids’ out of us and it was wonderful seeing everyone relating and connecting with the children. I am sure they will have great memories of the afternoon and will be reminded of our time spent with them whenever they see the plant they put together.” - Pauline Chua, General Manager, Human/Organisation Resource and Development.
