The Foundation

Dahuni Foundation was named after the late Mrs. Sri Dahuni, the mother of Riyani Indriyati, founder of Dahuni foundation. As a teacher and despite being underprivileged herself, she believed that education should be made available for all, especially for girls in small villages.

She was convinced that education was the only way to get out of poverty.

One of the reasons behind the creation of Dahuni foundation was to pay tribute and to honor the legacy of Mrs. Sri Dahuni.

mission & VISION

Our mission is to positively impact lives through higher education scholarships and mentorship.

Dahuni Foundation was established to contribute to the development of a more adept, independent, and worldly generation capable of elevating not only their own lives but the lives of others too

Our values

Dahuni Foundation believes that education is a sustainable investment to end poverty in the long run.

Through its scholarship program, Dahuni contributes in finding effective solution to the ongoing cultural practice of endless financial support to family members.

What we do

Students under Dahuni’s program get a unique and complete experience of receiving the scholarship, mentorship, and the opportunity to volunteer at its annual educational events.

“A professional mentor serves as a brainstorming partner and a coach.”

We search for individuals with characters.

When selecting for the recipients of our scholarship, we are looking for something more than just what looks good on paper.
