Reaching Full Potential

To tackle the issues of education and stunting in Indonesia, Belinda Tanoto, Member of the Board of Trustees at Tanoto Foundation recently spoke with the Jakarta Post and shared about the Foundation’s passion behind its support in these areas.


Belinda said, “The brains of stunted children do not develop properly and the cognitive impairment is visible in brain scans. It is no surprise that stunted children suffer from learning disabilities and are more likely to drop out of school.”  The Foundation remains committed to its mission - every person should have the opportunity to realize his or her full potential.
