At Terartai, we are more than a social enterprise – we are a movement dedicated to empowering artists with special needs through meaningful collaborations because we believe that #EveryoneHasAGift, including people with special-needs.
Our mission is simple: to create an inclusive environment
where individuals with autism, cerebral palsy,
and down syndrome can shine as gifted artists. 🎨

Why drives us to walk the talk?
In Indonesia, people with special needs face daunting challenges—struggling to secure employment, facing direct and indirect marginalization, and are often deprived of new opportunities. Yet, despite these hurdles, they are bursting with ideas, hopes, and dreams, just like any of us. And in Terartai, we believe in turning these dreams into reality by providing them with sustainable employment, a dignified life, and a voice in society.
