ABOUT THE TAN EAN KIAM FOUNDATION
The Tan Ean Kiam Foundation was established in 1956 by Mr Tan Ean Kiam, a man of humble beginnings who rose to become a pioneer business leader in Singapore during the early 1900s and donated to numerous welfare projects and schools, promoting education of all kinds to develop leaders for the nation. Under the current leadership of Mr Tan Ean Kiam's grandson, Mr Tan Keng Soon, the Foundation's belief in grooming youths into tomorrow's leaders as well as fostering meaningful relationships with the community continues.
