Susani Karta was born In Jakarta in 1956 to a Chinese family. She was privileged to study abroad, attending high school in Singapore, & did her tertiary education in the USA. She trained as Dietitian / Nutritionist and had over 19 years' professional experience, working in a hospital in Boston, for an NGO in Singapore & in the food industry in Jakarta.
She has been an entrepreneur since 1999. For the last five years she has focused on health-related business in Jakarta.
Susani was baptized in Jakarta in November, 1997. She came into the church as a mature single, divorced, with no children.
In 2008, together with four other mature single sisters from Central Jakarta, Susani initiated the formation of the Precious Women Fellowship (PWF), a monthly gathering of single faithful sisters in the church, including single mothers. The aim of PWF is for each sister to be enriched through learning new skills and attitudes to meet her own needs, so she can then become a source of inspiration to other mature singles in the community.
She helped initiate the formation of Asian Seasoned Singles -- an active spiritual network of mature single brothers and sisters across the entire Asian region of our churches. Susani has been a member of the Indonesian Church's Board of Directors since 1999. She likes to travel and is always on the move between her two residences, in Jakarta and Singapore.
