I call it "Volunteers"


     On this great years, I want to do many things to make my life better and to be a useful for others. I joined as volunteer in "Sekolah Anak Bahari". Sekolah Anak Bahari is social organization that help coastal children to get better education. We do non formal education for the children, but we also contribute on some projects for the local people and also environment. You can call me newbie here, but meet this team made me already like family. No classification, no gender, no senior or newbie, no differences. If we have the same mission, so we are one, we are unite, and we are "volunteer".

     Sekolah Anak Bahari is not only places for study math, reading or writing. We teach the children arts, sing a song, DIY, how to re-use waste material, and also how to love environment. We realized that to make a change we can not work alone, we have to work together. So happy that many communities or  foundation help us to make a better education for coastal children. Some of them help us to build the school, give book, table, and other study equipments. Some of them also share knowledge they knew, below are some activities that we already done for the coastal people in Tanjung Anom - Kait.

      On 14th August Sekolah Anak Bahari (SAB) collaborate with Lions Club did small project about "Youth and Environment". Children in Tanjung Anom - Kait was educated about how to  separate "organic" and "an-organic" waste. Two recycle bin already provided in front of SAB School. They did action by cleaning trash near the school and beach, then threw the waste into "organic" or "an-organic" recycle bin, based on its criteria.

      Green mussel shells are very many found there, it becomes waste and nobody cares or uses it. So, we trained local mother to reduce green mussel shells waste as decoration. Together we made handicraft , mosaic from green mussel shells. They were so happy and excited, so am I.

      On 28th of August, our school also join with health community to share about personal hygiene with the children. They thought the children how to wash hands well and how to brush their teeth in correct way. SAB's children are very happy and enthusiastic with this activity.

Thanks a lot for our friends who help us make the spirit keep alive....fighting !!! :)
