Children & Youth Empowerment
Empowering educators and setting low-income students and at-risk youth up for success.
Educating for excellence We work with Hinuh Lepsagot – a non-profit organisation that operates over 30 centres throughout Israel – to achieve their mission of reducing social inequality by creating opportunities for children of all economic backgrounds.
A team from Trax volunteers its time, teaching the children Math, English and Hebrew, while also providing tutorial help with their exams. With all the help we’ve given, some children from the centre visited our office to express their gratitude in paving the way for them to achieve their goals.
With work this inspiring, we’ll always be ready to help.
Home of Hope
Sip & Swine BBQ Festival Trax Gives Back is our US based volunteer outreach programme that aims to support organisations in need such as Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter, a non-profit residential care facility providing services for homeless children and their families.
Over the last three editions, our Sip & Swine BBQ festival has raised more than $100,000 for Home of Hope has helped to provide warm, nurturing homes to homeless mothers and their children, while helping them acquire the necessary skills to become self-sufficient.
Stand-up paddling for a cause Local is an association based in Isreal supporting children from less-privileged backgrounds. Here, at-risk teens – such as those involved in petty crime, drugs or from abusive households – channel their energy into surfing and stand-up paddle surfing (SUP).
This surf club with a difference offers refuge for people who have suffered, and recovered, from the world of crime. Through the programme, these kids develop discipline, hard work and dedication: the necessary skills that will serve them well in the future. The Trax team regularly participates in the program that offers hourly paddling lessons in exchange for a fee that goes directly into charity.
We hope that our contribution helps at-risk youths ride the waves to a bright future.
Trax encourages employees to contribute their time and talents to support social organisations.
Willing Hearts Soup Kitchen
Feeding those in need Willing Hearts is an organisation providing 5,000 meals to the elderly, the disabled, low-income families, children from single parent families, poverty-stricken families, and migrant workers in more than 40 locations across Singapore daily.
Our team in Singapore volunteered to help with preparation of several thousand meals for the needy, from cooking vegetables and wrapping spring rolls to packing food boxes. It’s not revolutionary work, but we believe that when we make the ordinary come alive, the extraordinary will take care of itself.
The Food Bank
Reducing our food wastage The Food Bank in Singapore is a place where individuals or companies can donate unused or unwanted food that is still safe to eat.
At Trax, we believe in making a bit go a long way. That’s why we helped the Food Bank to check product expiration dates, categorise items and pack them for delivery. Once sorted, this food was distributed to member charities that prepare the food and distribute them to the needy.
Good Deeds Day
Smiles to light up a hospital At Trax, we believe that every single person can do something good to improve the lives of others and positively change the world. That’s why we took part in Good Deeds Day, a global initiative that unites people from 100 countries to do good for the benefit of others and the planet.
Embodying the spirit, volunteers from Trax Israel visited Sheba Medical Center at Tel HaShomer Hospital as part of this initiative. There, they played and chatted with patients in different wards, handed out balloons, cookies, coffee and tea, all to put a smile on the faces of patients and their families.
Communities in Need
Providing food, shelter, materials – and sometimes, just solidarity for communities in need.
Tabitha Foundation Cambodia
Helping to break the poverty cycle Although poverty levels in Cambodia have fallen from 50% to below 20% in the last 10 years, more than 70% of Cambodians still live on less than US$3 a day.
Trax saw an opportunity to help, so we teamed up with Tabitha Foundation Cambodia, a sustainable non-profit organisation that has worked with more than 1.8 million Cambodians in some of the country’s poorest communities. In a bid to help a family break out of the poverty cycle, Tabitha Foundation focuses on their housing issues, water supplies, and enrollment into the Foundation’s Savings and Family Partnerships Programme.
Working alongside Tabitha, we’ve donated three homes to needy Cambodians to date. Trax not only paid for the construction of the homes, we were there to help build these houses too. We hope to keep building houses and improving lives.
Run for Cancer Sunrise Association aims to bring back the joys of childhood to cancer-stricken children and their siblings through Sunrise Day Camps, where children are able to play in a safe environment and enjoy activities that regular children experience. With all the changes that come when a child is diagnosed with cancer, the financial impact of treatment is sometimes overlooked.
Trax Israel participated in the Tel Aviv Night Run to support the Sunrise Association. Each Trax participant ran 10km on behalf of a child from the association, and the participation fee was donated towards medical treatment of the child. The sweat and pain of running has never been more worthwhile.
Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped
Massage Fridays Trax Singapore mixed work and relaxation by inaugurating ‘Massage Fridays’ as a way of paying it forward to visually handicapped masseurs. Part of the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH) group, the Mobile Massage Team are a group of WSQ-certified (Workforce Skills Qualifications) masseurs providing pop-up shoulder massage services at different locations.
As the masseurs put their skills to good use, they can earn a living without having to rely on charity or aid. Sometimes we forget that a handicap does not mean the end of a career. Sometimes it means a new one can start. Join us in contributing towards a more inclusive society by helping a member of the handicapped community find work.
Children with Cancer UK
Cycle for Cancer Children with Cancer is a UK-based charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. Over the past 29 years, they’ve worked tirelessly to improve survival rates and quality of life in young patients by investing more than £250 million into childhood cancer research and welfare programmes. Thanks to their inspiring efforts and generous support, today nearly 84% of UK children diagnosed with cancer will overcome the heartbreaking disease and get to sound the The End of Treatment Bell.
Trax UK decided to step into the ring and join the fight against childhood cancer by taking on our own challenge – a 94-kilometre, gran fondo cycle ride from London to Brighton. The trek raised nearly £5,000 and proved to us that a team propelled by passionate support and a vigorous mentality can beat the odds to achieve the previously unachievable.
