Meet Imran! Outside of his corporate role as a lawyer, Imran strikes us as a humble individual and an all-round gentleman. 😊 . He started his volunteering journey in 2016. Through his involvement in various community projects, Imran had met many residents who were burdened with legal issues but were unsure of what they could do. “Most of them hesitate to consult a lawyer because they think it would be costly or unnecessary. We are often seen as the last resort.” . Acknowledging that it is a real issue in the community, he decided to join other volunteers on house-visits and meet with families to offer legal insights. Some cases might even deal with more sensitive issues such as drug abuse or family violence. “In these instances, I’d help the family understand what they are dealing with and what they can do.” Way to go, Imran ! ⭐️
If digital is the way, it's our job to make that way a safe and reliable one! As part of PA's collaboration with Facebook, Mr Tan Hiong Hiang was at the launch of #wethinkdigital, an initiative that aims to develop digital literacy by training both our Silver Ambassadors and the Senior Academy trainers. It was Mr Tan's first time at Facebook and he was very excited to instagram and fb his experience. He said I think it is important to learn about Whatsapp or Facebook because it makes life easier for us. I can connect with my friends easily, and I want my friends to feel the same too. The 70-year-old shares his know-hows at Bukit Merah CC every Thursday and hopes that it will help as many seniors as possible. Ms Kendra Ong (65), a PA Senior Academy trainer also shared I had to teach my 90-year-old dad how to use the phone in case of an emergency. That was when I realised that there could be others struggling with technology. I hope to share my knowledge with others. By teaching, we always learn more.
