Our Little English Club

Singing "Daddy Finger" and "If You are Happy"
Singing "Daddy Finger" and "If You are Happy"

Hi dear friends!

Time goes by so fast, almost half a year has gone and our little English Club getting its goals! On this occasion we would like to tell you about our little English Club at the YUM Library in Central Kalimantan (Borneo Island). We believe that by knowing English language it widens one’s horizons and opens an opportunity to make many friends worldwide. YUM wishes to give to the children from the communities it serves that same chance.

The English Club is part of the regular activities of our Library. Twice a week from 2pm to 3pm about 30 children come to our Library to learn English and have fun. They are students from 1st to 6th grades. Some of the children come from nearby villages, such as Sukamulya and Tengkiling, which are more than half and hour walk from the YUM Library.

Children learn English no by being seated in a class and doing exercises but by participating actively through games, drawings, singing and by watching movies. Our children favorite song is “Daddy Finger” and “If You are Happy”. Children know the lyrics and they like to sing and dance along the video clip. Watching a movie is also their favorite activity. After the movie session, we discuss the story and we give children some assignments, such as making sentences with the new words or by drawing characters or subjects seen in the movie.

We are truly thankful to you, GlobalGiving friends, for your valuable donations to YUM’s children in Kalimantan. You are making possible for them to achieve a better future.

 

Thank you !!!!

Highly Motivated VTC's students, Graduated 100 %

Socialization and Promotion Activity
Socialization and Promotion Activity

The 9thterm at the Vocational Training Center (VTC) started on February 9th with 233 registered students.  After placement tests and selections processes, 227 students were accepted to follow the classes. This term VTC Cipanas started with 4 English classes as well as 4 for Computer and 2 for Sewing. The course ended on April 30th 2015. The last final exam was held on May and there were 174 students who were entitled to a certificate due to their attendance and exam qualifications.

All students who attended regularly our Courses passed the final exam. The graduation of this term has been 100 % !!!

The enthusiasm of this workshop is very high, but unfortunately the weather was not very supportive. The third session had to be cancelled for bad weather. This year the rainy season was very long in the area of Cipanas with heavy rains up to May. We believe next term will be better since we get into the dry season. Even though the weather, a total of 92 participants attended our Workshops on Job Seeking Skills with the following themes:“Company’s perspective in employee recruitment” by Agus Triyanto (HRD Manager Hotel Novus Cipanas) and “Job interview and Company’s perspective in employee recruitment” given by Bapak Kadek (Operasional Manager Hotel Cianjur dan Palace).

On April 25th, 8 students from Singapore International School came to do community service at YUM Cipanas. Besides having YUM’s activities like: distributing packages with nutritional food to 25 YUM’s beneficiary children and working together in art and craft activities at the Library, they also participated in VTC’s English classes. They were in the conversation class for English Basic 3 and English Kids Class. Their visit was an excellent opportunity for our students to practicing their English and having an interaction with foreigners.

 

Neng Peni Novianti, Student of Sewing Beginner Class:

 “I would like to thanks for all the good lessons and services during my course. There were so much knowledge and techniques that I did not know before. Now, I can manage to open my own business at home and also help my mother.”

Ai Salamah, Student of Computer Basic 4 Class:

“The computer material given by YUM VTC was more focusing and has more practice than theory. I feel more confidence to find a job or continue my study in Computer Science. The lesson that I learned related with web design, blog, Microsoft office and many others will be useful for me in the future. All the best for  YUM VTC and crews”.

Thank you very much for all GlobalGiving Donors for your help.Through the VTC we can help to facilitate and accommodate students to improve their skills and by doing so, to improve their qualify of life and those of their communities in the future.

 

                                                                                Thank you !!!!

Finally, I am going to College

Paridi - Beneficiary

Dear Global Giving Donors,

Through my first letter, I would like to express my gratitude to all you for your generosity in funding my school tuition. This help is a great blessing for me. Since I graduated from high school, I always wanted to continue my studies to a college level. But I never had that chance because I had to support my family and no money was left to continue my studies.

 Now, I finally have a chance to make my wish become reality. With the funding that I received, I applied to the Institut Bisnis Nusantara. This school is focusing on Economic and Business matters.  But they have also other major studies to offer like Communication, IT, Computer and foreign languages. I applied for Accounting under the Economy faculty.  I hope by having a degree in Accounting I can improve my work at my office and my quality of life.

My first class started at May 2nd 2015. This semester I have 15 credits to attain..  The subjects are: Business Introduction, Micro Economy, Macro Economy, Business Mathematica and English. I go to campus every Saturday, my class starts at 8am and finishes at 6pm. I take the Employee Classes so I can keep working as Bookkeeper at Yayasan Usaha Mulia on the weekdays. 

There are around 20 students in each class, and it gives me the opportunity to have an interaction with the Lecture when I have any difficulty with the lesson. My first mid-term test will be mid-June. I am preparing myself so I can pass the test with good scores.

I am aware of my responsibility to finish my studies and keep my working running as well. I am committed on that. I really appreciate all the help given to me.  Once again, I would like to thank all of you for the fund and the opportunity granted to me to continue my studies. Thank you!
