One of our lawyers, Andri Rizki Putra was invited to share his views and knowledge as a key opinion leader representing Indonesia in the social entrepreneurship program held by Singapore International Foundation on March 20th through 24th. Rizki shared his experience in running a not for profit education institution Yayasan Pemimpin Anak Bangsa (YPAB) to more than 100 aspiring young social entrepreneurs from 31 countries.
Outside his professional life as a lawyer, Rizki is an activist advocating equal access to education in Indonesia. Through YPAB, Rizki and his fellow activists provide free-tuitions of official Indonesian school curriculums, enabling underprivileged students who dropped out from school to continue their formal education since 2012.
His extensive experience in building the education institution brought him to this prestigious international event commissioned by the Government of Singapore, in which he discussed the challenges as well as gave some practical tips in developing a start-up. The event was interactive and the participants showed their enthusiasm by keenly listening to the presentation and raised good questions at the discussion session.
