Shell believes that every child deserves the best opportunities to fulfil his potential. The Nature Nurtures Programme (NN) sprouted up in January 2007 in collaboration with the National Parks Board (NParks). Today it works with NorthLight School (NLS) to provide enrichment opportunities for teenagers who deserve more guidance in life.
Away from the conventional school environment, NN takes place mostly at the soothing environment of the Sungei Buloh Nature Reserve. The teens partake in meaningful activities including coastal clean ups and mangrove salvaging. Through that, they cultivate an appreciation for nature. More importantly, the participants hone life skills, teamwork, and even gain a sense of satisfaction from being involved with the community.
NN is also a platform for Shell employees to contribute to community. Shell volunteers have something to take away from NN as well – they get to witness the teens becoming more mature, responsible and self-confident.
