Review for International Humanity Foundation, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

This is my 9th week at this center. The weather was just amazing, the rain and the sun were taking turn off and on a few times in a day. The field beside our center was flooding, a lot of dragonflies with different colors and tiny bugs flying around. Every morning the day start with very fresh air and the surrounding just looked so green and nice. It was really joyful!

On Wednesday’s computer class, Emelie and I were teaching the children regarding some theory knowledge and how to handle and keep the computers well. The children were sitting on the floor, according to them it was the Pagarwesi Day and they were not allowed to sit on the chairs. So they were a bit exiting and distraction because of sitting on the floor and quite close to each other.

We are a bit busy this week because of preparing the new curriculum and test papers. When I told the children regarding the test and the prize award day, they seems like quite expecting for that. Hopefully we could have something special and exciting on that day.

Review for International Humanity Foundation, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering at the IHF Bali Center for one month. Everything is just so interesting to me: the beautiful garden with all kind of plants and flowers, fishes in the ponds, the cows, chickens, bugs etc..
The center is located by the seaside and there are two small villages nearby. Although one is a Muslim village and the other one is a Hindu village, all the residents seem to live in harmony. Most of our children come from these two villages. Every time we pass the village or buy something from the stores there, everybody will just try to greet us and speak to us. I found that they really have a simple and yet contented life.
The children here are mostly very enthusiastic and active. I have been teaching some classes and I was always encouraged by the children’s laughter. I am trying my best to teach them English and Computer, they always turned up so eager to learn and improve themselves.
When I decided to join IHF as a volunteer, I just hoped that I could get some good experience while teaching the children and mixing with them. Other than that, I have been assigned for some international task work to do as well and these were another good experience to me. So far, I really have a fulfilling and enjoyable life here.
