“One of the biggest problems in Indonesia is corruption. It happens in all parties and all sectors. With Turun Tangan movement, we invite the Indonesians to get involved and create changes to the political face of Indonesia. We want the people who represent us, are those people who can make us proud,” told the Rector of Paramadina University.

Moreover, Anies continued to share about how Indonesia had not yet been focused on the human resource development and how he initiated Indonesia Mengajar to contribute. “The key challenge for human resource is teacher. When we talk about teacher, three major problems appear. Those are teachers’ distribution, quality, and their welfare. The main idea that we want to develop is to focus on human resource,” as the founder explained.
