"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." - Aesop
The GMP Group visited Willing Hearts, a secular, non-affiliated charity, wholly run by volunteers. It operates as a soup kitchen 365 days a year, preparing, cooking and delivering 5,000 meals daily to beneficiaries all over Singapore. They include the elderly, the disabled, low-income families, children from single-parent households and migrant workers.
Ms Teo is one of the many students that The GMP Group has helped since the scholarship programme started in 2010. Over the last two years, 30 students have benefitted from the bond-free scholarships and many have gone on to pursue a diploma in nursing. Another 10 students will receive the scholarship this year during the Nurses' Day celebration at ITE College East on 20 July 2012.
To commemorate Nurses' Day, GMP awarded scholarships to twenty underprivileged students this year. The recipients of The GMP Group - Dr Giam Cheng Lan Scholarship possess a NITEC in Nursing or a Higher NITEC in Paramedic and Emergency Care. The scholarship will help cover necessary expenses such as textbooks and school fees. "With this scholarship, we hope to provide needy but deserving students with a route to continuing education and a chance to contribute to the society once they graduate," said Josh Goh, Assistant Director for Corporate Services, The GMP Group.
The GMP Group is not merely a leading staffing and HR consultancy; we are an organisation that cares. Being in the business of 'Shaping Destinies', we aim not only to find the best match between job seeker and client, we also aspire to fulfill the aspirations of individuals. And in October 2010, we presented ten Nursing students from ITE College East's School of Applied & Health Sciences with a scholarship.
