We recognise that we are fortunate enough to be in a position to help others in our community – and are heartened that our people feel the same way.
“The Banda Street Project is an ongoing initiative that we’ve been involved in since 2008. It’s particularly meaningful to help these elderly folks, many of whom live alone. In 2011, we ‘lit up’ Banda Street by installing energy-efficient light bulbs in every household. It’s cost effective for the residents and eco-friendly to the environment.”

Our people regularly rally together to give aid to those who need it – and while raising funds, we lift spirits and share hope. Over the years, we have organised a multitude of bazaars, donation and collection drives, charity bakes and other activities to benefit organisations like SUNDAC, Girl Guides Singapore, YMCA of Singapore, Red Cross and Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Our compassion also extends beyond Singapore to communities in the region. Through the Overseas Community Project, an ongoing initiative since 2007, our people have been rendering humanitarian aid and assistance to neighbouring countries.
“For many years, PwC has been partnering YMCA of Singapore to “touch lives and lift spirits” among the less privileged communities overseas. Since 2007, PwC has rallied its partners and staff to serve in numerous YMCA International Service Programmes to China, Cambodia and Vietnam, bringing cheer and hope to thousands of underprivileged children, youths and families. In the years ahead, YMCA of Singapore seeks to expand the scope of collaboration with PwC to better serve the less privileged both locally and overseas.”

We believe that the right education helps young people develop the confidence and ability they need to make a positive contribution to their communities. Beyond supporting International Literacy Day, we are proud to partner Junior Achievement, the world’s largest organisation dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. From 2011, our people have volunteered time, energy and financial assistance to support Junior Achievement’s mentoring programme.
“JA Singapore is pleased to have PwC as our partner in inspiring and preparing the youths to succeed in a global economy. We look forward to working closely with PwC in making a difference in our community through JA’s entrepreneurship, work-readiness and financial literacy courses.”
