Considering the revenue and manpower size of Qson, we are not conglomerates with deep pockets, plentiful resources or industry shakers. However, it is our strong desire to spread our blessings to those needing it most. We do what we can, no matter if insignificant, to help.
With a helping hand to the next generation, of those needy tertiary students, some assistance through no-bond bursaries for their higher education was a good start. Bursaries used towards payment of tuition fees will free these young people to concentrate on their studies more fully, effectively removing the juggling almost full time work with studies.

Year 2014 – Aside from providing financial assistance, Qson had tapped on her industry expertise to co-set up a soup kitchen for Willing Heart. Soup kitchen from Willing Heart dishes out 3 hot meals a day, free to all who needs this meal, regardless of race, language or citizenship. Willing Heart also make home deliveries for those who are homebound, for one reason or another. With providing workflow and design of kitchen layout and supply and installation of quality commercial cooking equipment totalling $100,000, Qson set up the kitchen within 4 weeks. To underscore our commitment to Willing Heart and the community, all the equipment support and maintenance will be provided free by Qson on an indefinite basis.

On company level, every staff and new recruit will be given an option to sign up for monthly contribution to Willing Heart on a yearly basis and renewable. The contribution will be matched dollar to dollar by the company.
This year marks the introduction of another adopted charity, Fire Fly Missions, where again Qson staff will contribute financially to be matched dollar for dollar by the company. All on a voluntary basis and had seen the take up rate to be close to 100%.
Main thrust of our CSR is not just for the corporation, but also to nurture a spirit of volunteerism and compassion in our staff and to allow them to contribute meaningfully.
