Lighting Up Indonesia’s Future

Anies Baswedan returns to TEDxJakarta to share his “Indonesia Mengajar” (Indonesia Teach), a project he initiated in mid 2008 that sends Indonesia’s best graduates to remote areas lacking qualified teachers to teach in elementary schools. A passionate advocate for education, he believes that the idea of depending Indonesia’s development on natural resources must be shifted to its human resources, and one way to do so is through education.
