A team of nine from the firm will embark on a challenging and impactful expedition: scaling Mount Kinabalu, Southeast Asia’s highest peak. This climb transcends personal achievement, aiming to raise funds for Project Pari Singapore, a charity dedicated to empowering underserved young women.

This ambitious climb embodies Forvis Mazars’ commitment to becoming a force for good. It signifies their dedication to excellence and positive social impact, extending beyond the industry and into the communities we serve.

Forvis Mazars celebrates the completion of its new global network formation on 1 June 2024, resulting in a formidable entity through the collaboration between Forvis and Mazars. Rick Chan, Managing Partner of Forvis Mazars in Singapore and a member of the team, underscores the significance of this milestone stating, “As Forvis Mazars, we are not just building a network, we are forging a global force committed to driving positive change. Our ascent of Mount Kinabalu reflects this collective spirit. Together, we are united in tackling challenges and creating a more equitable future for all.”

A symbolic journey: Overcoming challenges, uplifiting women

Scaling Mount Kinabalu, at 4,095 meters above sea level, symbolises the uphill battles faced in the quest for a brighter future. This highest peak in Southeast Asia mirrors the struggles of underserved young women overcoming societal and economic barriers. The climb embodies perseverance, determination, and resilience.

Each step taken by the Forvis Mazars Singapore team represents the incremental progress these women make to improve their lives. The steep paths and unpredictable weather reflect the daily adversities they encounter. Despite these challenges, the journey to the top signifies hope, strength, and the relentless pursuit of a better future.

The expedition’s primary goal is to raise funds for Project Pari Singapore. This charitable organisation empowers underserved young women through education and skills development, equipping them with the tools they need to thrive. Cheryl Koh, Partner at Forvis Mazars in Singapore and one of the two female climbers, shares her motivation, “Project Pari’s mission deeply resonates with our values of diversity and inclusion. As a woman in the professional world, I understand the importance of access and opportunity. This climb is a personal challenge for many of us – six on the team will be conquering a peak of this height for the very first time. But it’s also a chance to raise awareness for a cause that matters. Climbing Mount Kinabalu is a symbolic way to demonstrate our commitment to building a more equitable future, especially for women.”

Beyond the physical challenge, Forvis Mazars in Singapore is committed to raising
S$30,000 for Project Pari. These funds will directly support their critical programs, unlocking the potential of these young women and fostering a more inclusive future.

“Project Pari is grateful for the selection by Forvis Mazars. The funds raised will significantly contribute to the expansion of our charitable endeavors, enabling the development of additional programs and the provision of enhanced opportunities to empower our female beneficiaries, thereby facilitating their realization of utmost potential,” Lynnette Ee, Service Chairperson, Zonta Club of Singapore.
