SINGAPORE - Social activist Melissa Kwee will be replacing Nominated Member of Parliament Laurence Lien as the chief executive of the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre's (NVPC) board.

The change in leadership was announced by the NVPC - which connects volunteers and donors with the non-profit sector here - on Wednesday. It will take effect on Sept 1.

Ms Kwee, a graduate of Harvard College and a Fulbright Scholar who embarked on social entrepreneurship right after university, is the founder of Project Access - a leadership education initiative to inspire and equip girls and young women to be role models.

She also pioneered service learning programmes in schools, and has worn various hats in social service.
