And before joining Water.org, he worked in World Bank's Water and Sanitation Program as the coordinator of Central Java Provincial Coordinator.

Commitment to Water.org

By working with Water.org, I hope that someday drinking water and sanitation—especially, healthy latrines—become the priority in the community, so that, there will be no more people who defecate in random places and there will be no water-starved communities. As Water.org staff, I want to help Indonesian people to become healthier, more productive and more prosperous.
