Kumara is the local hero of Planet us. He is the vital link for our operations. He and Fedor used to work together in 2005, during an intense post Tsunami project along the destroyed coastline of the island. Now he has three awesome kids, works as a tour guide and is a dedicated Buddhist. He lives on the edge of Ilukgoda and is a true local hero with a big heart!
I grew up myself in a small village in the heart of Holland, so I know from experience how important (and fun – at times) a stable environment is to grow up in. After wandering our wonderful planet for about twelve years, coming back I realized how special this actually is. Now I’d like to share my prosperity with people who have had less opportunity in life than me – after all – we are all from Planet us!
Joep and Fedor met during spring in wonderful Prague. Joep loves technical stuff and is good with numbers. He also likes to do his bit in making this world a better place, so he is the ideal treasurer and technical man behind Planet us. Right now he resides near the beach in the Netherlands and enjoys the fresh air!
