Playing card to memorize English vocabulary
Playing card to memorize English vocabulary

In the English classes of our Vocational Training Centre (VTC), the students not only learn from listening to their teachers, doing exercises and memorizing lessons, but they also learn through fun activities, such as watching movies, playing games and interacting with native speakers. All of these engaging activities encourage the students to speak and build their confidence using English. 

Some of the games that are played by the students include “Say Act”, “Analyzing Pictures”, “Do It in Pairs” and “Who Am I”. These games are very simple, yet they motivate the students to be creative and confident. There are many benefits from learning languages through games: more vocabulary practice, using proper grammar, grasp using conversational English expressions and so on. And YUM’s teachers have a common saying to their students, “It is okay to pronounce it wrong, it is not a big deal if your grammar is messed up. That is how you learn!”

Below are some of the students’ experiences in the VTC English class:

“Learning English through games is really truly fun. I can remember the words and grammar easily rather than just learning it through writing.  I enjoyed it so much and sometimes I forget that the time for studying is already up. I have been motivated to learn English more and want to continue to the Intermediate class level in the next term.” Wulan,  High School student.

“I love being in the VTC English class. It is always fun and full of energy. I hope that more students out there could experience what I have experienced.  My favorite English game is “Analyzing Picture”. The result of this game is that I feel more confident in doing my English assignment at school. Thank you very much for Mr. Cecep’s dedication in teaching us.” Egi, High School student.

Thank you GlobalGiving donors, with your generous support, YUM can to continue providing qualified English teachers for the disadvantaged youth in Cipanas, West Java through our Vocational Training Centre.

YUM's Cipanas Sewing Project team
YUM's Cipanas Sewing Project team

Yayasan Usaha  Mulia (YUM) realizes that as the world changes constantly, the support that YUM has from donors and partners could also change instantly.  Therefore YUM continuously seeks other sustainable funding sources. We has been running several income-generating projects such as welcoming group of paying visitors and students as part of the Edutourism program, organizing  Organic Farming Workshops and selling merchandise produced by our beneficiaries.

Since 2017, YUM focused on increasing the number of merchandise such as kimonos, aprons, dresses and cushion covers. The team has also expanded from two tailors to six. The team comprises of women who were former students of the VTC Sewing class. This collaboration is a great opportunity both for the students and YUM itself.  Nowadays, the team is also taking orders from not only local companies but also from international orders.

Every year around 80 students finished the sewing course and apply for jobs in the garment industry.  Some of them also made their own tailor shop business by taking orders from their neighborhood. YUM is very grateful for the continuous support from GlobalGiving donors.  This amazing project could not happen without your support. Thank you!

In 2016, Grace Orange spent 3 months for an internship program at YUM’s Head Office in Jakarta. During her internship, she had the opportunity to visit both of YUM’s sites; Cipanas, West Java and Palangkaraya, Central Kalimantan. A few years after her internship ended, she came back to Indonesia to visit YUM again! This time, Grace came with her friend, John who was also has interested with YUM’s projects.  

During their visit to YUM’s projects in Cipanas, Grace and John joined the English class at the Vocational Training Center (VTC). The course took place on a Sunday because the students in this class agreed to have their course in the weekend due the full day school schedule on weekdays. The students were divided into two groups, boys and girls. They practiced their English with Grace and John for more than 2 hours. Mr. Ray, their tutor, guided them during the class. They talked about their hobbies, the culture and youth in general. Grace and John also shared a few Australian English words which are often used. At the end of the session, one of the students played the guitar and sang a song as a token of his appreciation for Grace and John’s visit.

Having the opportunity to practice English with native speakers is one of the advantages that the student of YUM’s VTC Cipanas can get if they enroll in English class. And with two dedicated tutors, Mr. Cecep and Mr. Ray, learning English at YUM is always fun and easy!

YUM’s VTC has been very fortunate all these years to be supported by many generous donors through GlobalGiving. Thank you for continuing to support us!

Learning to make a pattern
Learning to make a pattern

The YUM Vocational Training Centre (VTC) in Cipanas – West Java - has two levels of sewing classes: Basic and Intermediate. Every new participant at the YUM sewing class has to start from a Basic level. At this level, the students learn to make patterns, cutting, using a sewing machine to sew and stitch straight, and make simple outfits like children’s clothing.

Once they finished this level, the students will receive a small report about their achievements. YUM is not giving them a certificate because after evaluation, YUM realized that there were quite a few more techniques the students needed to learn. To obtain a certificate therefore, the students have to enroll in the Intermediate class. Meanwhile as they continue to the Intermediate level, the students learn to make adult clothing with more complicated tailoring skills such as pyjamas, dresses, skirts and trousers.

Thanks to GlobalGiving donors, with your generous support the YUM VTC in Cipanas has been given opportunities to develop in order to help more people in the area.

Below is a comment from a former sewing class student:

“My name is Anissa. I love to design my own clothes, therefore I take this course so that I can make my own clothes. I am getting good at tailoring now and am also able to use a sewing machine, even though it is still in a basic way. Miss Ila, the tutor, is very friendly and easy to understand. I wish the YUM VTC will grow bigger than now and will be able to help more people in Cipanas.”

In the last few months, in addition to the regular computer class, YUM-VTC held two special technical classes. First is a free Internet class for adults/parents, this is a pilot project initiated by one of our donors, Mr. Don Hall from the Priscilla Hall Memorial Foundation. In the morning, the computer room is normally empty and at the same time, the parents of YUM Pre-school students are in the area. We realize their limitation when it comes to technology, meanwhile they want to support their child’s development and education in this challenging digital era. Therefore, running an Internet class for them to upskill would not only benefit the children but also give the adults extra skills and development opportunities.

The other special class is Digital Marketing and Entrepreneurship training with YoExplore. They are a community based online marketplace for people to list and book unique travelling experience designed and/or delivered by locals. They use an online platform to reach a global market and contribute a positive social impact for local communities together with global travelers. For three days, the trainers delivered essential information and knowledge about promoting a brand using digital and social media. The materials were given to the class by using methods of interactive videos and presentations. Everyone was very curious and enthusiastic to understand what was delivered in this training, which was not only enjoyed by the VTC students but also by YUM’s staff.

 Parent & student testimony

“I was so delighted when YUM selected me as one of the participants for this training. The knowledge that I have now is very valuable; it makes me more confident to start my own business as soon as I graduate from school. “ Reza, High School student

“It has been so long since I have used a computer. Now, not only do I get better in using technology and support my child but I can make an email and Facebook account too. I enjoyed myself so much while I am in the classroom.” Tita, YUM Pre-school student parent.

With your incredible support, YUM is able to provide regular computer maintenance, stable internet connection and qualifiedtutors. These facilities enable us to run training and workshops that enrich the participant's skill. We hope that in the future this will assist them in obtaining work.

Thank you GlobalGiving donors.
