We do expecting that volunteers are open minded, tolerant, respect the local custom and culture, love to learn and share.
Tegalrejo Red-District area is a prostitution area in Semarang Regency. There are more than 100 families who mostly work as sex workers or food sellers. We run this project since 2006 together with our mother organization PKBI. This work camp focus on improving quality life of marginalized kids so they will threaten fairly and less discriminated. Most of the children living in this area don’t have birth certificate, since their parent don’t have identity card either. On the other hand, they couldn’t afford higher level of school, and must faces high-risk-sexual activity scene (such as violence, sex bargaining, or sexual exploitation) as their playing ground. By this situation we worked with local stakeholder to provide Non-formal education where children can read books, make handicraft, fun studying, and cross cultural understanding with volunteer.
