At HPE, our purpose is to advance the way people live and work. We believe that technology has the power to better connect and strengthen communities, and that technology can be leveraged to help create a positive impact in the digital age. We amplify HPE employees' impact through our HPE Gives program, support our local communities, and promote meaningful strategic partnerships and employee engagement opportunities.
HPE has been actively partnering with FaithActs in the past years through a series of programmes, reaching out to the young and old - Seniors' Social Outing, Youth's Celebration, Mooncake Festival etc. This year, HPE is participating in the President's Challenge. The donations raised from this campaign will be designated to FaithActs, which is one of the benefiting organisations supported under President's Challenge 2019.
About the Charity
The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for charities selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society. Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. In 2012, under the leadership of former President Tony Tan Keng Yam, the Challenge was expanded to go beyond fundraising by including volunteerism and social entrepreneurship. In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment.
