The People Behind ARBA
Working on a problem as ancient and complex as poverty, we need an incredible team. We’re grateful to have some of the brightest and most committed leaders guiding our mission.
After almost a decade of working in the banking industry, Azlan decided to take a no-pay leave from his job and wanted to explore social issues in Malaysia. He was given an opportunity to work on research titled Child Marriage in Malaysia, commissioned by the UNICEF while pursuing his Master's degree at The National University of Malaysia.
During that period he discovered layers of social and poverty issues depriving children of good health, education and well-being. Upon graduation, he decided to resign from the bank and was intrigued by a proposal to build ARBA Foundation.
