On Saturday last week (25/05) in ¾ Co-Working Place in Tembalang, Semarang we organized our very first Voluntalk. In cooperation with Indonesian Volunteer for Peace (IVP Indonesia/Yayasan Kanal Perdamaian), Voluntalk this time explained to our future local or overseas volunteers about International Voluntary Service movement impact toward society and SCI as the oldest volunteering themed organization in the world based on changing perspective research in 2016.
Our facilitators are Sany Mardlotillah (founder of temanberkebun.com) and Edi Gunawan (Founder of Bhumi Horta Foundation. They shared about their volunteering experience around the worlds. Most of the participants are university students came from several universities in around Semarang.
This activity aimed to encourage especially young people to participate in international workcamp or joining middle or long term volunteering program inbound or outbound. This forum also would provide young people to know that there is another method of travelling called volunteering that considered more impactful deeds to create world peace.
This activity will be held monthly based on Bhumi Horta Foundation program calendar. The next Voluntalk activity could be held in your nearest co-working place, campus, or community base camp.
