On 7 Oct 2014, the CSR Club held a lunch talk for its club members.
Firstly, an outline of the club’s planned activities for the year was given, including participating in the Christmas Make a Wish Project by Nanyang CC and collaborating with CSR Compact on other CSR-related activities.
In addition, Mark from the EMBA Program was invited to provide an introduction to his social project in Malawi. The project aims to provide people in the country access to resources, specifically through selling cheaper solar panels to help develop microenterprises and build savings, in a bid to alleviate the poverty situation thereby improving the standard of living of the people there.
Details on how micro-financing works and the poverty situation in Malawi was also touched upon. CSR club members who are interested were also provided the opportunity to join Mark in his project.
All in all, the lunch talk provided an opportunity for CSR Club members to be involved and be in touch with the up-coming events.
