two days one night with 43 "angels in disguise",
we do lots of fun activities together!
I really really enjoy that moment
and wish to have it once again :')
well, JSA = Jambore Sahabat Anak.
I won't share about JSA long-winded here,
more info about the event, visit Sahabat Anak website.
(news coverage from MetroTV, check it here)
I attended JSA, 7-8 July 2012.
there were about 1000 street children + 700 adults (as comittee
and children companion).
at first I thought it will be like other social project
I've ever attended.
but I found it wrong. TOTALLY WRONG.
I don't know, but JSA was really different.
it is so different that I can't even forget
about every enjoyable moment I passed through the days.
I've never felt this happy before, after I joined
any social project alike.
but now, two days passed already and I still feel the enjoyment
and so grateful because I've got the opportunity to spent a night
with 43 children from IPPA (Ikatan Peduli Pendidikan Anak)
the very first thing that really suprised me was
when I greeted some of the girls,
they enthusiastically said, "hi Kak Stella".
they were not only said hi back to me, but also got themselves
closer to me, looked so interested in me.
this warm greetings never happened before
throughout my experiences being children companion :')
here, take a peek to the manual book of JSA. hho
I wish some day I can join JSA again
and have the same unforgettable moments
like I have had.
and here is some snapshots taken during the activities ;)
photo session in the very beginning of the event
never thought JSA's crews will give us the photos
tent decoration contest
we didn't win but still, we were happy
ACTIVITIES 1: Debate Session
moment to teach the kids how to respect
others opinion and learn how to be brave
thumbs up for the post guard effort to encourage
all the kids to speak up their stance
moment when Ibang was crying because of the debate.
he was so afraid and all I did was encourage him to speak.
really sorry Ibang (though in the end he said to me cheerfully
"I spoke in front of people!" right after he managed to speak his mind
Rudy try his best to say why we should not spend
our money buying snacks at canteen
ACTIVITIES 2: Workshop Session
games before the writing workshop begun
all the kids were so excited! :D
I forgot her name, but she has talent to write stories (Y)
Ibang wrote his dream: I want to be an ustadz,
like my father
energizer before the drawing workshop began
some of the kids drew their dream seriously
Riyo's dream: having a car garage workshop
and Riyo's got the appreciation for drawing his dream well
look at his happy face :)
one of the sponsors of JSA gave away strawberry milk
to all of JSA participants
Kak Leo, the composer, taught and encouraging the kids
so they were able to make song, not just remake a well-known song
after making the song, the kids have to sing it together
in the night there was an entertainment session.
7icons, Budi Doremi, a story teller and many other entertainer were
entertained the kids. the kids were REALLY happy
Ibang really wanted to see Budi Doremi,
but he was so sleepy and finally he missed Budi performance :(
Kak Yo, the morning gym funny instructor.
he did lots of silly move during the gym session XD
all the kids and the adults did the morning gym
the silliest games that was played! LOL.
their eyes were closed. they had to touch the finish line.
one person lead the way but the instruction was
"ayam" to go forward
"bebek" to go backward
"cacing" to go left
"burung" to go right
"buaya" to stop.
the last lunch before the event was over :')
those two boys did the ballroom dance, super funny!
I don't know this kid, but look at what he did with
those colourful ornaments. cute XD
and right after his little brother fell asleep,
his big sister came and do the "face painting". LOL
and the oldest brother came to clean up his little brother face
aww, how could they be so lovely <3
there, our last moment together.
I really looking forward to spend a night with all of you,
dear IPPA kids :')
