MEET OUR TEAM
Valen Tan Husistein (Founder)
Inspired by her 3 children, Valen decided to pursue a career in the Social Service Sector. In 2015, she left the private sector and took up a Fundraising role in the Social Service Sector and organised events such as live telecast TV Charity Show, Flag Days, Charity Swim, Charity Car Wash and more.
In 2017, to develop a stronger theoretical foundation of the sector, she decided to pursue a degree in Social Work at Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS). With the support of SUSS, she started Social Gifting. She hopes to provide passive income / meaningful activities to people who are unable to leave home due to caregiving duties or physical constraints.
Apart from running Social Gifting as a volunteer, pursuing her degree in Social Work, providing caregiving for her children, she is also a Volunteer Special Constable.
Come join her mission to empower the less fortunate to build on their strengths and enable them to live an enriching life with dignity.
(Social & Crafts Curator)
With prior knowledge of Social Enterprise from her polytechnic education, Ping Swen grew interest for Social Gifting during her community engagement as she witnessed how elderly were empowered through the crafting program.
She’s currently pursuing her degree in marketing and hopes to bring more creative ideas to the enterprise.
(Gifts Fulfillment Officer)
Currently pursuing a diploma in graphics design, Lily has always been inspired by everything around to create art. Joining Social Gifting has encouraged her to explore more ways to expand her creativity while also pushing towards an inclusive and diverse society.
