Jardine Schindler Ambassadors volunteering in Singapore
Raising awareness of mental health issues
“Mindset” aims to raise awareness of mental health issues and provides direct assistance for individuals, families, and organizations.
Each year, a group of Schindler employee volunteers, together with volunteers from Jardine Matheson (the Jardine Ambassadors), organize fundraising events for “Mindset” and give their time to work with people experiencing mental health issues. This is part of a two-year program to encourage young executives to give back to the community.
In June 2018, the Jardine Ambassadors worked with “Mindset” to organize an art event in Singapore for people experiencing mental health issues. The event encouraged creative expression by asking participants to draw or paint artwork on three themes: Singapore, Happiness, and Harmony.
At the end of the event, participants could either take their work home or take part in an art competition. Shortlisted art pieces will be publicly displayed to raise awareness for mental health.
Jardine Schindler is proud of the Jardine Ambassadors for dedicating their time to the communities they live in.
