    Due to the quarantine policy happening in many countries. We strive to keep the volunteering program going on.
    We are opening the volunteering program once more but through online video conference. We'll have around 10 people in the conference to talk with.

    I decided to do this in order to merry people's live in their boring quarantine. If we can make their days, why not?

    In this video conference, you will:
    *have 1-3 meetings a week with my students/friends.
    *Each meeting will take around 60 - 90 mins. (we just want everyone take their time and enjoy the conversation)
    *share about your country, culture, and other interesting facts.
    *get few questions from the students/my friends.

    As return, you'll get:

    *experience of knowing Indonesia and the people more.


    Cut it short, let's make better world while #stayathome. Contact me NOW!


    BRIEF INTRODUCTION

    Hi there! :)
    I am Abraham. But you can call me Bram for short.

    Well, I live and work in a developing city namely Jember in Jawa Timur (East Java). I have been managing a private course which deals with various subjects and English as one of them.

    I am also an English teacher in a formal school in my city. My course and my school have decided to start a volunteering program in August 2018 and it keeps going on ever since.

    I aim for the improvement of my students' ability in English by involving volunteers in their routines. I am eager to offer the chances for volunteers to see Indonesian culture and learn how it is to be Indonesian.

    Please refer to our calendar for availability.

    Well read my further description below if you are interested. Looking forward to your coming! :)
