Founder / Director:
Taufiq and Suliani started out their entrepreneurship journey while they were still students in 2005. Believing that Character Education and being responsible stewards of the earth is key in a child’s holistic development, they set out to create Kidz Treehouse as a space where children can flourish.
With his sharp business acumen, Taufiq brings with him a sense of determination to create sustainable businesses and structures to empower members of the organisation to combat climate change. In 2018, he led the team to attain the B-Corp status, awarded to companies worldwide that have adhered to a verified standard of social and environmental performance with high level of public transparency.
As an ardent Forest School practitioner, Suliani’s passion lies in creating positive learning environment for children through the great outdoors. In 2018, she led the team at Kidz Treehouse to emerge as Brands for Good double champions for People Development and Managing Environmental Impact and is also the winner of Dewipreneur Award conferred by the Singapore Malay Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SMCCI) in 2019.
In her free time, Suliani is also actively involved in a ground-up project, Blooms for Mom, to support enterprising mothers to pursue their passion. She spearheads the Bloom for Mom project with other like-minded individuals, to connect professionals in the business and creative arena with enterprising home makers.
While the journey of entrepreneurship has not been a bed of roses, Suliani and Taufiq strongly believe that one truly rises by lifting others. Suliani and Taufiq lead an organisation that invests in the lives of children, focusing on strength of character, grit and resilience. Fast forward today, Kidz Treehouse has impacted more than 12,000 lives locally through various enrichment programmes in Singapore.
