background

founders

Invest Islands Foundation was founded back in early 2019 by Jack Brown and Kevin Deisser.

The goal was to create a non-profit foundation that would establish a sustainable local economy in underdeveloped areas. Focusing on environmental sustainability the foundation has developed new strategies that aim to empower the local people and provide essentials support. The foundation has focused on educational reform and interactive community tasks to encourage a clean environment and preserve the natural beauty in idyllic locations.The foundation has implemented various projects in line with their strategic goals which has resulted in unprecedented changes in these local communities. In addition to this, Invest Islands Foundation provides eco-friendly developments that assist the economy, the community, and ultimately benefit the environment.


OUR PHILOSOPHY

mission

Invest Islands Foundation was founded to alleviate critical issues in the Lombok region of Indonesia. Primarily a non-profit organization, the foundation runs successful projects that assist in developing the community and providing sustainability to the region. The orientation of these projects is aimed at reducing plastic waste, creating organic farming methods, empowering the local women, and creating a valuable education system.

vision

The fundamental goal of Invest Islands Foundation is to create a sustainable lifestyle for underdeveloped areas by having an impact on social, economic, and environmental issues. Through the education and empowerment of locals, Invest Islands envisions a changing lifestyle that will positively impact lives for generations.

approach

All projects for Invest Islands Foundation are driven by the locals of the Lombok region. Without the participation and motivation of these locals, the projects may not have seen the success they have. Each project is focused on solving one issue at a time with the results being measured and processes amplified to expand into more successful projects across the region.

impact

Invest Islands Foundation has already had a profound impact on the local communities in Lombok with several successful projects. These have ultimately improved the environment, created employment opportunities, and provided daily essentials to the locals of the region. This positive impact aligns with the company's strategic goals and contributes to future success.

Ways We Work

ECO-FRIENDLY DEVELOPMENTS

By researching and implementing eco-design techniques, our goal of reducing environmental impact can be achieved. These innovative design techniques enhance recycling abilities and ultimately enforce eco-sustainability.
