Gedongsongo camp is one of project in IIWC of PKBI Semarang. This project located in Desa Candi, Gedongsongo, Kecamatan Bandungan, Kabupaten Semarang with theme “Environment and Education”. The goal of this project is to increase the awareness of the local people there about garbage management (especially non-organic garbage) and give an informal education for the children.
This project has one international volunteer from Japan and one camp leader. The first activity there was giving an informal education for the children. There around 30 children that join the class. They look so happy and enthusiast with our project even though they didn’t understand what the international volunteer said luckily there were our camp leader and local volunteers that help to translate and communicate each other.
This project also had school visit and university visit. They visited SD Negeri Candi 3, there they have cultural exchange and educative games. There were a lot of students that join in our project, both of the students and the volunteers look so happy. Godongsongo camp has special event “Reproductive Health Seminar by PKBI” for the teenager there. This is the first seminar in Gedongsongo.
Although one of our goal; is to increase the awareness of the local people there about garbage management (especially non-organic garbage) can’t be realization at that time because of many reasons but we already give a bit socialization for the local people there. We hope that it can be realization next time when this project started again.
