Studying With Kids
Teaching Kids activity is the activity that exist in several project which is the volunteers should teach and learning together with the children. It could be English class which is they learn about English or creative class which is they made something new from reuse/recycle things. Sometimes they have culture class; where the kids and the volunteers learning about the local culture or the volunteers culture.
Company visit is visiting company to learn more about the company that has correlation with the project. The volunteers has opportunity to ask some question, see how their work and so on.
The volunteers usually try to impact the local people by educating them about the issue. For example they educate the children how important to learning English. The output of this activity is to build up the children’s motivation to do something. Because if there is no motivation they couldn’t be change. But if they already have motivation it will be easier to impact them to do something new or better in their life.
