Alexander Mann Solutions holds Charity Quiz
2nd Oct 2015
Alexander Mann Solutions – the world’s leading provider of Talent Acquisition and Management services – hosted its second Charity Quiz Night on the 2nd October at Boomerang Boat Quay. The event was designed to raise funds for Aidha, a non-profit-making organisation that provides sustainable futures through financial education to foreign domestic workers in Singapore.The Quiz Night, which raised over $7,000 for Aidha through entry fees, an auction and a raffle featured approximately 110 participants in teams of up to 10 people, all competing for a chance to win points and prizes. “At Alexander Mann Solutions, we have built our business on providing innovative solutions to ambitious clients focused on talent. ‘Our People across the globe are truly the Foundation of our Success’, That’s why we choose to support charities, such as Aidha, that have similar talent enhancement and enablement missions,” said Alison Baird, Managing Director, Asia Pacific at Alexander Mann Solutions.
Foreign domestic workers support Singaporeans and expatriates alike, enabling them to realise their full potential and achieve a positive work/life balance. Alexander Mann Solutions is committed to partnering with Aidha to support these workers, enrich their lives and help them to support their families, now and in the future.
“Building capability, leadership and creating an inspiring environment is key to both Aidha and Alexander Mann Solutions,” said Baird.
Karen Fernandez, Chief Executive Officer for Aidha was pleased to see so many participants having such a fun time at the event and generously helping the organisation’s students at the same time.
‘We are deeply grateful to Alison and the wonderfully big-hearted team at Alexander Mann Solutions for organising the Quiz Night, which surpassed last year’s event and raised a healthy amount of money to support our students,” said Fernandez.
Aidha will use the funds raised to provide more foreign domestic workers with financial information and self-development skills that will enable them to choose more sustainable options for themselves, their children and their families when they return home.
“By having the opportunity to learn and a supportive and positive community to encourage them, our students have already shown what a big difference it makes in their lives. This is demonstrated in the number of productive assets they have invested in and the small businesses they have set up in their home countries,” said Fernandez.
“This would not have been possible without committed and generous supporters like Alexander Mann Solutions, who have helped Aidha in many ways over the past few years, from providing pro bono specialist talent related consultancy to organising fundraising events,” Fernandez concluded.
Aidha provides sustainable futures through financial education to foreign domestic workers in Singapore. In addition to financial literacy, Aidha provides computer literacy, business management and entrepreneurship skills. At Aidha, domestic workers can find healthy friendships, a safe and a positive environment and an opportunity to learn. Students at Aidha are involved in lively discussions, group exercises and get many opportunities to practice what they learn in class. We never forget to make the learning fun!
