Social entrepreneurs are those who tackle social issues and try to overcome them using the power of their own enterprise, as efforts on their own may often be powerless. These issues may be spread across various sectors such as health, environment, economy, education and many more. Indonesia, being one of the largest developing countries in the world, is no stranger to the term ‘social entrepreneurship’. There are plenty of social entrepreneurs wanting to give the people of Indonesia better lives. Many of which have made have a significant impact in helping the country. Due to their efforts in attempting to make the country a better place, Top 10’s Indonesian correspondence have picked 10 of them to be inducted into an exclusive list of top 10 social entrepreneurs in Indonesia, and one of them is Mary Northmore.

English-born Mary moved to Indonesia in 1986 after marrying Abdul Aziz, a prominent artist. Life took an unexpected turn after Aziz passed away in 2002, and Mary spent much of the next few years compiling a book about his art and life. Shortly after that, Mary was approached by doctors who wanted her to establish a foundation for children with clef lip/palate and other cranio-facial disabilities, so she founded the Smile Foundation of Bali, for which Queen Elizabeth II awarded her with an MBE. To date, the foundation has helped almost 3000 patients across Indonesia to access good quality clef and cranio-facial healthcare.
