About the Northeastern Team
The Northeastern Archipelago team consists of five educators. Dean & Jita are the MSI Site Leaders. Before moving to this island, Dean previously served as TfN's program Director. Xavier is a TfN alumni who now serves on staff with Mustard Seed. Elisa and Michael graduated from TfN this past July.
They all come from different islands with various ethnicities: Dean is a Javanese; his wife Jita, comes from Moluccas Island; Xavier is Timorese; Elisa comes from Dayak tribe in Kalimantan; while Michael's tribe lives in highlands of Papua.
Although they are from different backgrounds, they are united in one vision: to serve the children of Northeastern Archipelago.
