Spreading Joy For All

Vantage Foundation partnered with local business Duotech to brighten the festive season for those in need. Through the Joy For All initiative, Duotech employees fulfilled wishes for the children at Chen Su Lan’s Methodist Children’s Home in Singapore, personally selecting and wrapping gifts with handwritten messages.

This initiative emphasizes the importance of community support and inclusiveness during the holidays as it could be a time of social anxiety for those away from their families.

Wishing Well Initiative

This holiday season, Vantage Foundation is lighting up the lives of underprivileged youth at Rumah Hope Children's Home in Malaysia through the Wishing Well initiative designed to foster sensitivity and inclusivity during festive holidays.

It is essential to remember that not everyone has the privilege of receiving presents from their families during Christmas. Vantage Foundation recognizes this disparity and believes in the power of community, compassion, and togetherness to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

Transforming Lives Through Education

We understand the power of education to improve the livelihoods of those who receive it. Yet, access to education remains unequal at best. At Vantage, we've been on the lookout for strong partners where we can maximise our effort to build a more equitable world for everyone, so no one gets left behind. In our new partnership with UNESCO, Vantage is committed to improving access to quality education, so everyone can be empowered through education.

To kick off this partnership, we are pleased to sponsor UNESCO's State of the Education report (SOER) – Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Education.

Vantage X Supercar Blondie

We’re thrilled to be partnering with Supercar Blondie, the Australian internet sensation with over 75 million social followers, in our ESG journey.

Supercar Blondie joins Vantage in Sardinia, Italy, to participate in Extreme E’s Blue Carbon initiative – during the week of the Extreme E Island X Prix II race – restoring seagrass ecosystems. Seagrass captures carbon up to 35 times faster than tropical rainforests, and while it only covers 0.2% of the seafloor, it absorbs 10% of the ocean’s carbon each year, making it an incredible tool in the fight against climate change.
