To uplift at-risk youths, we partnered with Halogen Foundation, an NGO, to mentor 15-year old students in various neighbourhood schools, through its Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship program, thereby supporting Youth Inclusion & Education. In commemorating the Singapore Bicentennial, Total partnered with the French Embassy to support the Lee Kong Chian National History Museum of Singapore, and the Museum national d’Histoire naturelle of Paris, to create the book ‘Voyageurs, Explorateurs et Scientifiques: The French & Natural History in Singapore’ which highlights the works of French naturalists Diard and Duvaucel who accompanied Sir Stamford Raffles during his journey to Singapore 200 years ago.
