Prior to working in CISDI, Asnoer joined Indonesia Mengajar movement. This movement envisioned teachers from urban cities to be stationed in remote areas for a year. Asnoer spent a year with the movement in Indonesia Mengajar where he lived without electricity, signal and clean water. This experience had drawn his attention more to technology development.

Being a part of CISDI has become such a privilege for Asnoer. He is committed to bring more people/community closer to technology access in Indonesia. He believes that values of a person depends on what he/she does for their society instead of their wealth, degree or position.
