Letter From The Founder

“A better Indonesia — perhaps the best Indonesia that I could imagine in my lifetime — has always been my dream, my vision. An Indonesia where every individual has access to adequate healthcare and education. An Indonesia where every man lives with a high quality of life.”

Tahir Foundation was born out of this vision. It is my and my family’s expression of gratitude and Christian faith. It is our way of giving back as generously as we have received.

Tahir Foundation focuses on education and healthcare. It fulfills its mission through strategic partnerships with leading public and private organizations, such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Global Fund, including public health departments, community organizations, and educational and healthcare institutions.

We support educational institutes in Indonesia and abroad, to nurture the best and brightest of Indonesia. We bridge the gaps in health services, increase the capacity of effective organizations, and foster innovative solutions to persistent healthcare access problems.

We promote a culture of giving in Indonesia. We hope to nurture a community of generous donors committed to the improvement of the lives of the underprivileged in Indonesia.

I hope to inspire more people to, like me, dream of a better Indonesia — and ultimately, a better world. You can change the life of one person, make a difference in one family, alter one community, or transform one nation. Join me in dreaming. Together, let us make Indonesia a better place.
