Head of Student Affairs got married!

Naomi, our Head of Student Affairs, got happily married to her soulmate, in Bandung on May 29th, 2021. Happy wedding dear Naomi! Naomi became our first full-time employee in December 2019, after having been a volunteer since 2012. Naomi is a great support for our students and our main anchor for our mission in Indonesia. The board members in the Netherlands and students and graduates in Indonesia are very happy that she is now starting a life together with her beloved partner! We wish your marriage will always be happy and full of love!

I never thought I would be full-time for Heliconia. At first, in 2012 I was only helping cooperation partner Mili and having experience in doing social activity as a volunteer. I volunteered my energy and my ideas for Heliconia because I wanted to support the project but could not give donations. Thank you Carli, Tim, Sayan, and Mili for trusting me to handle Heliconia fully. I promise I’ll always do my best to take care of the Heliconia students and to work for Heliconia’s administration and recruitment. With my husband by my side, I will enjoy my work even more!


Carli is our operational manager and founder of the Heliconia Scholarship Foundation. She is responsible for the daily management of our charity, upkeeps our administration and oversees the whole. She is also the contact person for our cooperation partners Naomi and Mili and students in Indonesia. In addition, she created the website and writes news updates.
