Our MERITT Values
Our character and culture as an institution are rooted in our MERITT values. They shape our thoughts, actions, and habits as individuals and as one team.
Our Temasek Heartbeat
Our staff are active volunteers who help make a difference in many outreach programmes with different non-profit groups and self-help organisations around the world.
Maintaining Green Spaces
In London, we have been volunteering with the Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People by helping to maintain gardens and open spaces for the enjoyment of their beneficiaries.
Fresh Food for the Needy
Our New York colleagues partnered City Harvest Mobile Market to pack and deliver fresh vegetables to low income families.
Celebrating with Children
Our Mexico City colleagues organised a Christmas party for children under the Dr Sonrisas programme, which assists children with terminal or life threatening diseases.
Engaging the Underprivileged
Our Brazil team joined more than 400 underprivileged children in their recreational activities at the nursery school, Creche Anglicana Do Morumbi.
Interacting with the Elderly
In Beijing, we did craftwork with residents at a charitable nursing home in the Xicheng District, and presented them with warm clothing for the Spring Festival.
Nurturing Our Youth
In Mumbai, we partnered Magic Bus, a non-governmental organisation to develop a livelihood centre, which provides training, mentoring, and job placement services for youth.
Building Homes, Building Teams
At our annual staff offsite, we held two team-building events in Singapore and Batam. One group built homes for villagers living in Kabil, Batam; while the other assembled and installed new furniture for the elderly residents of Peacehaven Nursing Home, Singapore.
Honouring Our Pioneers
In Singapore, we organised a walk down memory lane for 500 senior citizens from the Central Community Development Council and Touch Senior Activities Centres. We recreated the Great World Amusement Park, a well-loved Singapore amusement park in the 1960s, for their enjoyment.
