About K-SES


When Passion & Need Collides

Founded in 2015 as a social enterprise, K-SES is a team of education experts and trusted advisers from the intersection of education, arts, psychology, policy, music, management and anthropology. It started with a strong passion to increase educational opportunities for Indonesian children and youth. Yet we repeatedly encountered the prevailing systematic barriers and challenges that thwarted the provision of equitable quality education for all Indonesian children and youth. Our frustration shed light to a new strategy to address this multifaceted complex education problem.

There are already many individuals and organizations devoted to do good work in the Indonesian education space – what if we could help resource and empower them? What if there were enough of these empowered organizations and institutions in Indonesia to form a critical mass? Then perhaps, we will move to a tipping point of widespread educational transformation. So we build partnerships and solutions that create strategic value to advance this cause. Our chosen vehicle is a strategy and research consultancy that offers effective education solutions. In simple terms, we are in the business of changing lives through learning.

We are fully aware that no single consultant has the depth and breadth of expertise to serve clients in all aspects of education. For that reason: We employ the team approach in every engagement; we synergize with other highly qualified professional educators and form an education consulting group in our attempt to tackle the systemic problem in education.
