Team

Now, we know everyone says they have the best team ever…
but we really have the best team ever. Because one of the challenges of working for a non-profit is that what you are worth is never what you receive. However, all these people still give their all to help people in need.

Jorge

Our leader extraordinaire, but don’t call him that. To be honest, Jorge is a leader against his will. He would just as glad be a coaching soccer at the villages or prison than in the office; however, he’s the founder and CEO of Free and Safe, as well as responsible of among many other things.

Maria

Maria has the passion to be a personal assistant. Writing details and reminding schedule is what she loves. With her assertive, reprimanding and nimble personality, we knew she is perfect to balance Jorge’s free-spirited personality, full of ideas and dreams to achieve at the same time. We are very grateful that our boss finally has a personal assistant to help him with appointments, meetings and schedules.

Josephine

Josephine is a member of our finance and admin team who helps us in the office. She loves to collect receipts, take care of reimbursement. She is very humble and always willing to help one another wholeheartedly.

Mira

Mira is our finance and legal master. Her default face expression is ‘always smiling’. She is experienced in taking care of legal field. We trust her 100% because no one else understand as much as her. Of course we are very happy to have someone so capable, smart, honest, and a loving person working at Free and Safe.

Jefri

Jefri does a great job at both being 100% Indonesian, and 100% a bule. Truth is, we wouldn’t be anywhere without him. Jefri is starting a new branch of FSI in Bali. Since 2022 Jefri has been starting visiting prisons and coaching football in Bali. We will have a Transition Home in FSI Bali, where we will focus on street kids and transitioning boys after freed from prison. Also FSI Bali and Jefri will be working together with local Balinese organizations who will focus on solutions for human trafficking.

Pak Odi & Ibu Nur

This lovely couple, with three beautiful kids, do everything in and around our Transition Home. Their heart for our work is amazing and we love them. Oh, and in our opinion Ibu Nur is the best chef in Bandung!

Marel

Marel is a very creative and smart person, even before finishing University we offered him to work in FSI. We believe Marel has a great heart to serve and also she will bring her creativity to our social media and creative department. Marel loves being on social media and she can make ordinary photos meaningful and fun. We welcome Marel to FSI and thank her for her willingness to make an impact on the many families FSI helps.

Angel Lie

Lie is the youngest among us, but her passion and heart are bigger than ours. She is still studying architecture at Maranatha University, which is one of our partners. She has a passion for art since she was little and that makes her a good fit in the creative department. Although sometimes she has to work on building sketches or mockups in the office, she balances her busy schedule and is happy to do both. We are very grateful to have such a talented person and look forward to the day when she will design the FSI office and program building one day.

Anya Ze

Anya is the Head of FSI programs, and she is responsible to make sure the Transition Home, Women’s and Juvenile Prison programs are running well. Basically, Anya helps keep the wind in our sails. Also, she is in charge of Free and Safe Women, to help them transitioning from prison to the outside world. Her dreams are to empowering and being a bridge for youth and women to have a better future for them and their families. She’s a rock on which we can build and we love having her around!

Silvie

Silvie is a gentle and generous person. Reading novels and spending time with books has given her a passion for literature. Her favorite books are those with heartfelt content. That’s why she has a big heart to help the Women’s program, teaching them how to pour out their hearts and thoughts that are trapped inside them to understand the emotions they feel, balance their mental health and learn to accept themselves and their circumstances. 

Besides helping Free and Safe Women, she is also the personal assistant to Anya who is the head of our FSI Women program.

Beto

Give Beto a ball and he’s happy. He has an infectious laugh and knows how to be a great coach and also IT manager at the office. Every week that he joins us in prison or helping around the Transition Home he tries to make people smile and feel comfortable. If Beto is not playing football, he’s…we don’t know — we think he is always playing football or joking around with our boys at the Transition Home.

 

Jaclyn

Jaclyn has so many skills like graphic design, making short movies and photography. However, she decided to be our amazing English teacher. She teaches English from little kids until our oldest boys at college.

One of her biggest qualities of Jaclyn is she is always ready to work hard and serve all the people around her.

Thales

Thales is a Brazilian who moved to Indonesia. He is cheerful and full of laughter. His jokes kept all of us and the kids in the FSI program entertained. He loves doing light activities and organizing small games for all of us. The children loved it so much. She helped a lot with our kids program with Jaclyn, organizing the class schedule and dividing up the tasks for the teachers and volunteers. Phew… dealing with 100 kids is not easy, but we believe as more kids join the program, our team will also grow bigger.
