In 2015 the founder of Know Indo and his wife moved to Indonesia from California and began working alongside local communities. After studying language and culture for two years, they launched Know Indo. They started Know Indo by collaborating with local artisans making beautiful products reflective of the people and their country. Through the products, the founder's desire was to introduce Indonesia to the world.
When the pandemic hit, they saw many local people struggling to thrive and provide for their families. Through different initiatives and eventually, over time they finally decided that Know Indo would convert to a non-profit organization and focus on providing children in Indonesia with education by covering the cost of their school fees. This was one of the biggest needs for families brought on by the pandemic.
Until now, that is still the focus of Know Indo, to provide an opportunity for each child to pursue their education and create a better future for themselves and Indonesia as a country.
