Sagita Paramalingam
Manager - Volunteer Network

After graduating with a BA in Psychology & Communications, Sagita launched herself into the world of NGOs that dealt with women empowerment, sexual gender-based violence, and fundraising. Her passion for humanitarian work and serving vulnerable communities led her into the drug demand reduction field and thereafter in 2019, she became a Certified Addiction Professional in Recovery Support and Training. Even though her exposure to these social issues stemmed from her personal life, Sagita found that journeying with individuals struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental disorders really opened a whole new worldview for her.

When the Covid-19 pandemic began in 2020, Sagita left the city and went back to her hometown, Penang Island, to do volunteering work with the homeless, refugees, and migrant workers. Today, she is continuing her passion for humanitarian work with SOLS 24/7 as a Volunteer Network Manager in their mission to serve, educate and empower the Bottom 40%. Sagita aims to support and expand SOLS’s volunteer network with like-minded individuals to get closer to eradicating cyclical poverty.
