“I have 3 hopes for Indonesia’s welfare: first, I want Indonesia to digitize more students, teachers, and women MSME entrepreneurs because we have all entered an all-digital era. Second, the development of the creative economy and everything related to preserving cultural heritage and empowering the community’s economy. Third, I hope that YCAB Foundation will continue to collaborate and produce more programs that have an impact with leaders in West Java because we all have the same mission, which is to break the chain of poverty and fight for Indonesian MSMEs so that they can keep thriving and moving forward”, said Adelle Odelia Tanuri, Secretary-General of the YCAB Foundation.
As Covid-19 brought a sea of change to our world, programs, and collaborations by the YCAB Foundation and Dekranasda of West Java are hoped to provide hope for economic recovery and humanity through this pandemic and beyond.
