Words From Our Founder

In 2014, I had the opportunity of meeting a young girl who chose to drop out of school because she was bullied. She felt that school was no longer a safe space for her to express her ideas. A child whose big dream is to become a doctor remains threatened by bullying and consequentially face the possibility of being unable to fulfill her education, which can in turn uplift her from the cycle of poverty. This singular event is a huge loss for a country that has gained its independence more than half a century ago and is, in fact, not uncommon. This is one of the many cases that demonstrate how bullying can be a key obstacle that has the potential to dampen the confidence as well as hinder the ability of Indonesian children in realizing their full potential.

Sudah Dong was initiated to increase the public’s awareness of the negative impacts of bullying through both online and offline programs. In light of this, I hope that this movement does not only touch those in communities closest around me but also reach those who are most marginalized and are located within Indonesia’s peripheries. Through Sudah Dong, I hope that all children in Indonesia can continuously express their talents and feel empowered to learn without having to be afraid of any discrimination such that they will be equipped with the skills required to contribute towards realizing a more prosperous and equitable Indonesia, an Indonesia that we envision together.
