In memory of AFIELD Fellow Nirwan Ahmad Arsuka

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing away of Nirwan Ahmad Arsuka. A writer, social entrepreneur, and incredible activist, Nirwan was awarded the 2021 AFIELD Fellowship for Pustaka Bergerak Indonesia (Indonesian Mobile Library Network). This network of over 3000 mobile libraries distributes donated books across Indonesia.

We would like to extend our sincere condolences to his family, his colleagues and staff from Pustaka Bergerak Indonesia upon this terrible loss.
