Tan Chin Tuan Foundation’s Programme Consultant Doreen Wan tells NOOR AZURA AHMAD of her role in funding charitable projects in the country.

“I don’t run any NGO, but I can help NGOs achieve their goals:” says Doreen Wan, a 50 year-old single mother of a teenage daughter. Doreen, who runs her own PR company, began volunteering at the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation (TCTF) at the request of the CEO, a personal friend. He wanted someone he could trust to handle applications and such, and With Doreen’s previous experience in community work, she was the perfect candidate. Tan Chin Tuan Foundation, which has its origins in Singapore, gives out grants to various charitable projects based on merit.
