Dear Colleagues;

My name is Andris Adhitra from Indonesia. I just graduated from University of Indonesia Faculty of Law.

During my college time I joined a student folklore group in my University called KRIDA BUDAYA, which had experienced hundreds festival around the world since 1988.

I join the team of the Cultural Mission of Indonesia to several festival in France and Italy 2007 organized by Association National Culture and Tradition under designation of Jean Roches and Marie Agnes Jacques in Gannat.

After I teach children in various school and we represent our beloved country in festival in Philippines and International Children Festival in Tianjin China, and also joining the Folklore Group Swara Maharddhika of present the complete panorama of Indonesia in France 2009.

After I joined the team of WAYANG AJEN PARWA PUJANGGA, on presented WAYANG (Indonesia traditional wooden puppet show) under designation of ARSENA MEDIA KREASI Jakarta and Association National Culture and Tradition, Gannat France.

Now, I represent youth from Indonesia. We concentrate our developing activity on introduce the cultural heritage of Indonesia to children and youth, so we can share our idea about our cultural heritage to the children and youth around the world.

Last November 2009. I attend the SEAChange Youth Forum in Malaysia.

In this forum, youths across all age groups display the desire to provide more for their family and/or community. We see problems in their lives and society, and want to be able to do something about it. What’s stopping us? Ourselves – our personal habits, lifestyle, knowledge, ability, and wealth. Hence the drive for personal change. But is it all about personal gain? Apart from Malaysia and Singapore, stories from youths across the region strongly suggest that personal change is not just about what we can gain for themselves, but what wecan do for others.
Therefore we need your support to help us enhance the developing of IOV Indonesia Youth section and link with another youth around the world.

With support from Mr. George Frandsen IOV USA, and our friends Olvin Valentin, we decide to become IOV Indonesia Youth Section.
