We are proud of our students’ efforts in contributing to society and creating impact with what they do.

Nanyang Business School (NBS) Orientation Programme, Inflammaré, has a strong passion for imbuing corporate social responsibility in the freshmen. Every year, the Planning team would come up with projects to meld the dynamic energy of freshmen into a passion for serving a purpose greater than themselves – the community. Over the course of 2 weeks, a Storybooks & Games Donation Drive was conducted for their targeted beneficiaries, The Salvation Army Gracehaven. Gracehaven is a residential home for children and youths who require care, and rehabilitation due to risk behaviors and a lack of parental supervision. 300 books, 20 cards games, and board games were collected, and received in good hands on 21st August 2020. NBS Inflammaré efforts this year are believed to be helpful to those that receive the donations, and the team looks forward to any opportunities in years to come.
Christmas Angels project by Actuarial Science Club (ASC) aimed to bring joy and
happiness to underprivileged children in Singapore. In partnership with
Children’s Wishing Well, ASC sourced and coordinated with students and staff of
NTU and the general public to sponsor a Christmas gift for a child.
Each gift cost no more than $30.
The Actuarial Science Club initially targeted 60 gifts for 60 children. In the end, the ASC was able to provide gifts to 78 children, with some benefactors sponsoring more than one beneficiary. It was a very encouraging response that helped to liven up Christmas for these 78 children.
