MEET THE TEAM

President – Antoinette van den Berg

Since January 2017 our family is living in Singapore for a couple of years. For the last few years I have been working in the charitable sector, both in the Netherlands and in Switzerland.

In this line of work I have mainly dealt with relationship management and fundraising with individuals.

When I heard about the existence of the NCA I realized that also in this modern and developed country, there are people who fall outside of the system. With my background in the charitable sector, I immediately thought that this could be an excellent chance to use my experience and knowledge for the NCA. As an NCA Board member,  I hope I can add some value to our new home country.

Vice-President – Rashmi Baya

Having grown up in a country which has more than its fair share of social and economic divides and injustices, I have always felt very strongly about women’s rights and equality, empowerment of people and enabling them to lead better lives. From a very young age, I have been volunteering with and donating to charitable organisations.

I moved to Singapore in 2011 with my family. While looking for work, I realized that my heart was in working for the betterment of people, and decided to make it my full-time job. I studied Psychology and Counselling and have been working in this field for the last couple of years.

After volunteering with various charities in Singapore, I joined NCA in October 2016 and have been working behind the scenes on the website, content and social media. I am honoured to get this opportunity to take vision of NCA to new heights and work towards enriching the lives of the less fortunate in this country that has been my home for the past several years.

Treasurer – Willemijn Dorrepaal

Together with my husband and three children, I have been in Singapore since 2014. We have lived abroad since 2003, in Nigeria, Indonesia and again in Nigeria.

In these countries I have been working for various charity organisations. I found it very inspiring to contribute to the development and well-being of the people in sometimes very challenging environments.

In the unique, well developed and safe country of Singapore, working on charity is not the first thing that comes to mind. But once you have been here a bit longer, you see the other side of Singapore as well. Also here, there are people who need help and support. Through joining NCA, I hope to play a part in improving the lives of these people.

Secretary -Marlies Broek-Wijdeveld

In January 2017, our family moved to Singapore and after six months we can absolutely say that we are at home here. In the Netherlands I worked as an Account Manager for a payrolling organization.

For the period we live in Singapore, I decided not to seek a paid job, but to  devote my time to our family and volunteering.

In our first week in Singapore I got in touch with NCA and learned about hidden poverty, among other things. Living here as an expat it is very easy to stay in your expat bubble, but there is so much more to Singapore and it is very rewarding to see you can actually make a difference in people’s lives. I am excited to take over the role of Secretary of NCA and be a part of this wonderful organization and to be able to make a difference in people’s lives.

 Marketing & Communications Manager – Karen Nix

In March 2017 I came to Singapore together with my husband and two kids. Most of my life I have been living in Amsterdam. This is our first time living abroad. We thought it was a nice opportunity to live somewhere else in the world for a while.
I have always been working in media companies as a marketing analyst. Since a while I started missing my job. We have been enjoying Singapore very much but I had a feeling I could do something in charity this time in my life. It’s a great opportunity that within NCA I can combine this with my experience in the marketing field. And still having time for my kids and their school activities and being able to explore Singapore a little bit more.
