Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2008
This description of Bambang Basuki's work was prepared when Bambang Basuki was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
Bambang Basuki is building a system to provide quality and unlimited education for the visually impaired in Indonesia. Realizing that many blind students are limited by the lack of learning materials available to them, he created the Mitra Netra Foundation to develop a resource center in Jakarta as a model and increase the capacity of other organizations across the country to function as resource center to better cater to the needs of blind students.
