Born and raised in the small village of Ubung on Lombok, Masri is a self-starter who gives back at every opportunity. After starting out as a teacher, he followed his generous spirit in establishing a social volunteering project in his village giving free English and environmental education classes to nearly 600 underprivileged kids in the sub-district.
Masri went on to work in a peace campaign project for interfaith youths in Indonesia, Bangladesh and Pakistan for Oxfam International. Continuing in many social campaigns in Lombok, he met Kevin Deisser in March 2019 and took the life-changing step of becoming a project manager for the Invest Islands Foundation. A dream role in which he can enact positive change for his own people exactly where it’s needed.
