Who we are
CSR at TRG International
Helping where we can to those in need
TRG is a company who takes charity close to its heart. TRG’s mindset is, “we help where we can”. Every year, we make sure to reserve funds for charity programs across the country to help the poor, needy and most vulnerable in the community. For close to a decade we made annual trips to the orphanage with rice and other essentials. In the recent past few years we’ve switched to the company matching monetary contributions to double the amount our people donate and have supported and participated in an annual exodus to some remote locations around Vietnam to deliver literally tonnes of rice and truckloads of essentials. We annually participate in the British Business Group (BBGV) Fun Run and The Terry Fox Run.
Giving blood is such a simple and quick activity most healthy people can participate in on a regular basis. In Vietnam there is a real blood shortage and TRG has been a regular donor for many years. Our CEO and founder Rick Yvanovich has been donating blood for nearly 3 decades and encourages people to give up a little bit of themselves several times a year.
As we experience the erosion of coastal areas, the intrusion of saltwater and the decline in air quality its not surprising that our annual Tree planting activity sees active participation! It’s fun, educational and healthy exercise and we usually morph it into a one-day trip for the whole family, the kids especially love planting in the mangroves, as what kid doesn’t enjoy squishy mud. Over the years we have planted thousands of trees of different varieties including: mangrove in coastal areas, coconut in forest regeneration zones, and other varietals in temple grounds and new forests. We’d really like to plant a million trees, it’ll take us many years to achieve, provide a lot of fun and make a very meaningful impact.
TRG, “We Paint” is an event, which allows you to explore your creative side, and we host it at one of our coffee shops, PJ’s Coffee Sala. This event promotes work-life balance in the community to help you relax and enjoy a stress-free morning in the company with other painters in cozy surroundings. This is an event open to the public, where all ages and genders are welcome to join whether you have Picasso-like painting skills or are like our founder Rick whose stick-people depictions leave much to be desired.
TRG has always felt it important to give our people multiple opportunities throughout the year (ideally monthly) to give back, in a way they feel they want to, to the community in which we’re operating in and a part of. We have several recurring CSR events over the years, both internal and external such that if you miss one opportunity, it comes around again. As we ourselves are also part of the community we also provide CSR opportunities for ourselves too. Blood Donations, Tree Planting and Charity are favourite recurring themes. Painting was recently introduced to help with work-life balance.
