A Journey to Inspire

Sri Lestari spent 10 years confined to a wheelchair and stuck at home in Indonesia, after becoming paralysed in an accident. Now she's gone from that, to not only overcoming her own paralysis, but daring to dream, acting on it and inspiring others to dream big too, by travelling 1,200km across Indonesia.

She's riding a modified motorcycle from Jakarta to Bali to show Indonesians and the world that sometimes, the most devastating of circumstances can be overcome, and even turned into good.

This is her inspiring journey.


Help Sri continue on her inspiring journey as a social worker by supporting the organisation she works for, UCP Wheels for Humanity.
