My name is Gideon
Now, I work as a cameramen in a local television, near my house. Beside that, I'm active in social organisation based on education especially for kids.
I start it an English community based education at my village specially for kids/children. Indeed, I think that improving their English skills could help the child for their future job and also develop my village.
My village is between two mountains, Sumbing and Sindoro. We have beautiful scenery. Mostly we plants tobacco and coffee. We produce great quality of tobacco as well as coffee.
That's is me, tobacco, coffee and English based community education that I want to share with.

I'm also cameraman for Temanggung TV, so I would probably bring you one or two times at my work to show you how our local TV is working.
We need you who can teach English for the people in my place (village). We need someone who love to a children and hopefully can blend with them because most of our 'student' will be a children.
