Our Endeavours to Education
We believe that education is key in enabling our children to break out of generational poverty cycles and carve out promising futures for themselves. We support life-long learning through book prizes, scholarships, bursaries and collaborations with educational institutions such as National University of Singapore (NUS) and Singapore Management University (SMU) to celebrate the outstanding contributions of law students, in recognition of their achievements, and to encourage them to continue and inspire others.
Our CSR education awards are structured as follows:
RHTLaw Subhas Anandan Pro Bono Award (NUS)
