Good News From Indonesia (GNFI): restoring confidence




Why you should visit this website: dear my Indonesian fellows, are you getting exhausted with nearly all the ‘bad news’ coming in to our minds, as always broadcast by much of our mass media recently? (answer yes!) We can’t deny that our country is imperfect. It has a huge mess of corruption cases, of poor bureaucracy, of dilapidated infrastructure, of our oftentimes incompetent government, or of our government’s farcical policies, wrong perception of culture, our fallacious mindsets, and indeed, it is inevitable to admit these facts. Despite all the shortcomings, though, we have beautiful islands, great natural scenery, rich traditional customs, a highly multicultural heterogeneity (imagine nearly 800 ethnic groups inhabit our country) to be proud of, plentiful natural resources yet to be explored, and, after you visit this website, way too many good things to be optimistic about Indonesia. Kudos to Akhyari Hananto! (founder of this website)

A dose of optimism for Indonesia


Akhyari Hananto has an out-of-the-box idea to flame up the positive spirit among the Internet users, particularly the youth, in Indonesia.  Having seen many of his generation losing faith in the country’s future, he decided to establish a new website dedicated to provide the public myriad undisclosed news items about Indonesia’s good side, the bulk of which are never before exposed en masse by the mass media industry. His hard work paid off with million pairs of eyes having visited this site, and in addition, an award recognition by Marketeers, one of Indonesia’s most popular magazines, as one of the 100 Most Influential Youth, Women, and Netizens in 2011. His website currently continues to inspire people with positive feeling and attitude towards their own country, and the full potential yet to be explored.
