  • Description


    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.

    Here you can get more experiences. Knowing peoples and culture. You can learn about life, villagers life style. You can learn about Javanese culture, such as dance, language, gamelan music (traditional music), our myth, Javanese essence of life (Kejawen). Farming, specially coffee, tobacco, chili, corn, and many more.
    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.
