Ara Kusuma

2021

Ara started her changemaking journey early. At the age of 10, she fell in love with cows and was devastated when she saw the conditions in many dairy production farms. She founded Project Moo to surface and share innovations among 150 village farmers to increase dairy production in a more sustainable way, creating a better life for the cows and the farmers alike. Since then, Ara has founded several other organizations with a strong education focus. Her latest one emerged during the pandemic. She founded Aha Project, to provide creative home-schooling kits for underprivileged children in rural areas in Indonesia. She also leads Ashoka’s Young Changemaker program in Indonesia.
