Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Chan Chun Sing and senior volunteer group RSVP Singapore's president Koh Juay Meng (in white and green shirt) chatting with participants at the launch of a scheme yesterday to encourage older workers to become volunteers. The scheme, which was launched by Mr Chan and former Speaker of Parliament Halimah Yacob, will introduce employees aged 45 and above to a volunteering programme over five months, suited to their interests, time and goals. Called Retire With A Purpose, the scheme is organised by RSVP Singapore.
