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...

As I said in my latest article, (http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/posts/charity-with-creativity--part-1-) I will share the video version of our charity activity at Sekolah Master. This is the School of the "Needy Children and Teenager" who have jobs as street singers, car wash persons, or even beggars. They had been living on the street for years because they have no parents or siblings. I hope, you enjoy this video as much as we enjoyed our activity with the students from Sekolah...

A few days ago, I was really happy to see my Twitter and Facebook timelines because the world celebrated “Universal Children’s Day” on November 23rd. There were so many positive thoughts and hopes of people and the children. Their thoughts were about what we can do to create, build and develop children’s mentality, what we can do to arrange the better education system for children, what we can do to treat and respect about the children’s rights, how to be aware about the...

Social media is kind of a technological thing that is really near to our lives. Technological? I guess it will be too narrow if I said that it is only a technological thing. It has entered other aspects such as education, business, and social life. My country, Indonesia, is one of the countries with the largest users of social media. There are 19.5 million Twitter users, 65 million Facebook users, and 700 thousand Path users. WOW! Such large numbers! Even I am included in those s...

Have You Met Galuh? He is the typical Indonesian twelve years old boy. He goes to school from seven to twelve then, after his brief lunch, he goes to his father’s coconut kiosk. Galuh’s father sells coconut drinks. Under the hot, blistering sun of Surabaya, coconut water is one of the most sought after drink. No wonder Galuh’s father business thrives. However, there are two other kiosks, right next to their kiosk, selling coconut from the exactly same plantation striving...

“Why is it important for children & youth to have a voice in business”. This question sounds really rare and successfully makes me think deeply about the answer. When I was thinking about “Business”, the situation that to my mind is; a young man, bringing lots of water-color and the brushes for painting. He is going to the garden with so many children waiting for him. In the middle of their activities, the young man’s phone is ringing and the man says “Alright,...

I found a very interesting article in the newspaper. It is about Busway Kicks. What are Busway Kicks? In Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, there is a transportation called Transjakarta. It is not a new vehicle or a modified-car, it’s just a new system where a bus (Transjakarta) has a special track on the road. The track is called Busway. It’s just like a train system, but without any rail, and the vehicle is bus. Other vehicles on the road (actually) are forbidden to go...


"Bullying" is our topic for this week and I'm sure the term "bullying" is sounds normal and common topic. Bullying, according to this website, (http://www.stopbullying.gov/what-is-bullying/definition/) is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems. We all know...
