In line with our team chill-out activities we were going to organise a Habitat For Humanity Outward Bound trip. Habitat for Humanity is a fantastic non-profit housing organisation with a mission to eliminate poverty housing worldwide by building simple, decent houses with the help of the homeowner families themselves and volunteers. Companies can provide a donation as well as time to assist in the building of the houses. However, when we sat down internally and thought about it we asked ourselves “is this the best possible use of our time and skills to assist them?”
The solution we came up with was to offer Habitat our IT services. By coincidence their office in Singapore was only 50m down the road. A short walk and one meeting later we were on board and are now proud to say that we provide their IT support or RITA as we like to call it – RED IT Assistance. Hence the logo at the end of our e-mail signatures. On a pro-bono basis they get the full support that our corporate clients do – namely Systems (Hardware & Software) Maintenance and Break-Fix support.
