Bedah Campus promotes higher education to the high school students in remote area through online mentorship. This two year old venture operates in Lampung province and has more than 570 mentees and 150 mentors. Candra and her team organize roadshows in different schools to recruit high school students to join as mentees. Then they recruit university students to volunteer as a mentor and find professionals to be foster parents of the mentees. Bedah Campus is partially funded with the profit of a separate business - a language center, also run by Candra and her team. In the next five years, Candra wants to reach 33 provinces in Indonesia and scale the language center so that its profit can fully support Bedah Campus.

Wanderlust Indonesia is an ecotourism company that offers tours where travel activities are combined with volunteering services to locals based on their needs. So far, it has hosted tours in Krakatau Mountain, Labuan Bajo, Tanjung Puting, and urban Jakarta where about 100 ‘Wanderers’ got to meet the locals, understand the local values and customs while travelling, and leave behind a positive footprint through volunteering or sponsoring a child’s education. In Krakatau Mountain, besides snorkeling and hiking, Wanderers get to complete a project like teaching a chapter from Wanderlust’s curriculum for students or teaching English to guides. In the next two years, Dini plans to expand to 5 other islands/conservations and to villages and slum area with literacy, fair trade, sanitation, and waste management programs.
