A big THANK YOU to everyone for joining us at PBG Cohesion 2019! PBG Cohesion marks the start of a fruitful year; this annual event introduces our members to the Club’s events for the year and provides them with an opportunity to bond with like-minded peers about the meaning of pro bono work.
PBG Cohesion 2019 was off to a good start as distinguished guests from LSPBS sat down with our students for a panel discussion. We really appreciated Mr. Bernard Chung, Ms. Lee Chia Ming, Mr. Tan Shen Kiat as our guest speakers and Ms. Regana Zara Mydin as our moderator. Their thought-provoking sharings gave students an insight on the value of pro bono, as did their patience when answering questions about the pro bono scene in Singapore.
The panel discussion was followed by intra and inter-project games were new members get to bond and make new friends! As part of our community engagement activity, members had the chance to use their artistic skills to design T-shirts for our beneficiaries. Using fabric markers and dyes, members were given white shirts to personally design a T-shirt for our migrant worker beneficiaries, FAST and ACMI. Members enjoyed the activities as it allowed them a hands-on experience, creating tangible products that could benefit our beneficiaries directly..
All in all, PBG Cohesion 2019 was an engaging experience for our members. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude towards Allen & Gledhill for sponsoring our club shirts.
