Sugeng Rawuh, welcome to our place. Our house in the rice fields in my family hometown in Jogja, Indonesia. Every holiday we usually make some social project for children around our neighborhood.
We teach them about traditional dancing, organic farming, paper recycling, drawing batik, etc. We want you to join with us play and learn together with all the children in our village.
Little bit about me as an organizer, my name is Bernadia I'm a psychology student who interest with education and children. I have been working for assistant teacher for disability students, and experience with teaching for rural children for almost 4 years. My reason to do this project, after I did my simple assessment about what those children need is to be brave talk about their future dream. In this global era they can't just study in formal school, as Howard Gardner said (Theory of Multiple Intelligences) that we need to develop many abilities from children. So I want to share about the important thing of communication, open minded, and creativity.
There's so many thing I want to share and learn from you, hope you can make my dream come true with join this social project.
