Giving back is “like an internship”, says Aarathi Arumugam, the financial controller of Daughters Of Tomorrow.
This active volunteer – she’s also a board member at both Aware and Malaysian Association in Singapore – explains: “I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life when I work within these organisations. I am given the opportunity to constantly and consistently learn about how the world works and about myself. I never would have learnt all this sitting in my little bubble.”
Aarathi’s work is crucial to building a better future for both Daughters Of Tomorrow and its beneficiaries. She not only manage its finances, but also oversees impact measurement. For the latter, she uses research data to assess how effectively the organisation serves its beneficiaries through its programmes and initiatives.
