Formed in 2001, T-Touch is a volunteer initiative driven by our staff, who volunteer their time, ideas and effort to support our communities.
Beyond investing, we are committed to making the world a better place.
We first adopted Singapore Leprosy Relief Association Home in 2002, and have since supported other charities over the years. Our efforts benefit the elderly, children with special needs, the needy and the disadvantaged. Causes that staff personally support and pursue include preparing meals for those in need and fundraising for the less fortunate through running.
Their contributions are supported and supplemented by company wide programmes to help the less fortunate.
Touching lives across the globe
Beyond Singapore, our staff volunteers in our international offices make a difference in outreach programmes with different non-profit groups and self-help organisations around the world.

At our annual Community Day in Singapore, our enthusiastic volunteers organised a full day activity-filled event at the Singapore Sports School for some 300 beneficiaries and caregivers from Singapore Anglican Community Services. There was a variety of telematch games and arts & craft sessions. We even made history by creating the largest post-it picture collage in the Singapore Book of Records, with over 9,000 post-it notes. These activities were designed to encourage our beneficiaries to stay positive and keep faith in their rehabilitation journeys, and to strengthen the bonds between them and their caregivers.
Supporting Social Enterprises
In Singapore, our supportive staff mentored young, aspiring social entrepreneurs supported by the Singapore International Foundation. They shared business, finance and strategic insights with the entrepreneurs, on addressing social issues.
Helping the Vulnerable
Our active Beijing colleagues participated in the “Run with Love” event together with their families, in support of Share the Care, an NGO which helps vulnerable children improve their education and social welfare.
Our friendly Mumbai teammates organised a fun-filled pottery making session at St. Jude Centre in the Parel area, for children diagnosed with cancer.
Providing Essential Items
Caring New York colleagues worked with Hope for New York to sort and pack essential items for families in need across New York City.
Lively Brazilian colleagues volunteered with Cidadão Pró Mundo, interacting with 1,100 underprivileged students to develop their English speaking abilities outside the classroom.
Our thoughtful Mexico City team partnered the Dr Sonrisas programme to organise a surprise Disney party for a five-year-old girl with kidney cancer.
