Arvind has been a member of Effective Altruism (Singapore) since 2016 and provides strategic input for the development of the chapter.
He is also a signatory of the ‘Giving What We Can’ pledge (i.e. pledging to give at least 10% of one’s income to the organisations that one thinks can do the most good).
"It is overwhelming to consider the scale of (easily preventable) suffering in the world. ... I pledged to contribute 10% of my income for life to the most effective charities that address this suffering. It's really not a lot. But I suspect when I look back, it will be the best thing I ever spent on."
Arvind is currently a business development manager at Citibank.
