It’s January 2014, we are still in the beginning of this year. But it’s really sad to know that there are too many bad things that are happening around this time in Indonesia. We have discussed "Disaster Relief" as our debate topic about a month ago. Now, we will talk about some disasters occurring in Indonesia. The first natural disaster occurred in September 2013 which was the eruption of Mt. Sinabung in North Sumatra, Indonesia. State volcanologist Surono said, “The 2,...

“Wow, I Love Indonesia!!” I love my country. Indonesia has 34 provinces, 17,508 islands, 300 distinct native ethnic groups (with their own culture, traditional clothes, traditional food, traditional song, dance and 742 different languages and dialects). I love my country so much, I can’t go through the day without thinking about the beautiful paddy fields in West Java, the awesome waves and sunset in Bali, the mysterious forest in Kalimantan, the incredible Toba Lake in North...

“Do you want to listen to the radio?” “Yeah! Prambors, please! It is 102.2 FM.” Both radio and television are using frequency in order to broadcast their programs. Frequency is free in the air, and what they actually do is borrow the frequency and ask for a canal for them to take place. I will focus on television when I talk about frequency. Frequency is free, and its public, so logically those television stations must serve programs which are safe and appropriate for...

Father, Mother and Children. The ideal members of a little family. Let’s add Grandpa and Grandma, Uncle, Aunt, Cousins, Nephew and Niece for an awesome extended family. What a very great feeling for some people, who easily get the affection and care from their family and can experience it with a smile and little tears of joy. At the beginning of 2014, I was thinking that I sometimes forget about my family. It doesn’t mean that I forget about who they are or where they are,...

The idea of diversity is like any other idea because it has a good side and a bad side. In each country that has diverse people it could be a source of problems but it might also be a healthy thing. From my last visit to Indonesia, I noticed that this Islamic country is very proud of its diversity and focuses on the culture and traditions as a special thing that they are gifted with. They believe in preventing and keeping their traditions which was obvious when they held the last W...


“I want to be a teacher, I want to motivate every child to keep dreaming, to keep learning, to catch the great dreams with their skills, hard work and the faith to the God” It was a very beautiful dream of a young man, named Suhariyanto. He was born 25 years ago and grew up in Kudus, a beautiful little city in Central of Java, Indonesia. Since he was a kid, he wanted to be a teacher. Because for him, education is the most important thing to achieve success in life. He wanted...

Lake Toba is the result of the eruption of a super volcano about 75 thousand years ago. It is located in North Sumatra, Indonesia with a length of 100 kilometers and 30 kilometers wide and a depth of 300-900 meters. This lake is the largest lake in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. In the middle of this lake, there is a volcanic island called Samosir Island. Lake Toba has been designated as one of 16 national strategic areas by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy. Lake Toba...


First of all, I want to say thank you so much to UNICEF, ITU and the other partners for the “Guidelines for Industry on Child Online Protection” and also to Voices of Youth for the big chance and the place to share my thoughts about this topic. I’ve been waiting for this kind of guideline, and I write this post as my response to the guidelines and the article, “What Should Companies Do to Make the Internet Safe for Children?” which was published by Voices of Youth about 4...

Indonesia is one of the most populated countries besides that of China, the USA, and India. A big problem challenging the government of Indonesia, notably the Ministry of Education and Culture, is the equality of education. We also must look at the quality and access. Most of the above problems continue to persist in many tribal communities. The challenge occurs because of some geographical and cultural factors. Geographically, thousands of islands consist of remote areas house...
