OUR TEAM

At Kejora, our success is all thanks to our amazing team! We have caring staff, exceptional board members, and helpful volunteers who work really hard to realize our mission. Together, we want to make a difference in the lives of the people of Karimunjawa. We’re excited to keep moving forward and making the world a better place with everyone’s support!

My family have been living and working in Karimunjawa for generations, & I’m very grateful that I can call this beautiful island home. Now I get to be part of helping future generations of the island grow into smart, capable & healthy, eco-warriors!
Tono - Founder

I am proud that together we can set up such great projects for a better future for Karimunjawa. I like to use my network and experiences in volunteer projects in Karimunjawa to achieve the best result for Kejora.

Sudar - Chairman

With a background in Human Rights & Psychology, and being a professional English & Yoga teacher, serving others has always been my path, but I never could have imagined it being in such a magical place, until I met my husband, Tono. I love the two-way abundance of both giving and receiving; it just feels right.

Astrid - Assistent

I’ve been happily living in Karimunjawa for the last 8 years. I am passionate about giving both my own, and local children on the island access to new and enriching opportunities. I’m grateful that I can use my professional skills in marketing, communication and events management to help Kejora succeed.

Joyce - Assistent

Working with Kejora school and helping support with my curriculum has been incredible so far. I am the CEO of Seed Learning Garden, I hold a B.S in Psychology, a 120-hour TEFL certificate, and boast over 10 years of teaching experience at accredited international schools. I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of Kejora!

Kristi - Curriculem specialist

As a Fine Art graduate, I love using my creativity and enthusiasm to coordinate all of Kejora’s projects. Being part of such a passionate team and seeing the local children enjoy participating in the programs motivates me to continue making Kejora a success.

Fahmi - Projectmanager

As a teacher at the local preschool on the island, I love how Kejora enriches my own teaching experience. Kejora teaches in a different way, showing how well children can learn from, about and within nature, all while immediately learning a lot of English.

Risma - Teacher

Kejora teaches in such a unique way that we can learn from each other and share our experiences. I like to use what I’ve been learning with Kejora in the primary school I’m currently teaching at on the island. Seeing the children go to school every day with a smile makes me happy.

Septia - Teacher

For me, Kejora is a space where we can be friends, cooperate together, share knowledge, learn from each other and experience new things. My slogans are, ‘become a knowledgeable person by studying others, be an intelligent person by educating others, and be a rich person by enriching others’.

Cakra - Secretary

Education by constitution is the responsibility of the government, but education by morals is the responsibility of all of us. Learning and teaching are enjoyable, it can be considered a type of entrepreneurship.
