Exchange program for youth empowerment and connection


The experience

This means, he/she may completely lose the chance of changing his/her life through education. That is why I believe having our children got access to nurseries is the first step of making a change in this community. Building a nursery has been my biggest dream and together with 5 other youngsters we have been working hard to make it come true. Our team plan to continue this work as a community-based organization, we named it, mama enter tza

Activities & Shift

My family has a land in Maliasili and we have built two small houses as our home there. In front of the houses, there is an empty space where I am planning to build a nursery for our children in the neighborhood. My team and I have already designed the classroom and calculated the costs in details. When the nursery is set up, we should be able to support early education for 50 children. Besides, we have started a entrepreneurship class 4 months ago teaching women and children in the neighborhood a variety of entrepreneurship skills, including batik making, handcrafts, language learning and more. We have educated 36 students so far and sold some products in the community and local markets. At the moment, the class is held everyday in a outdoor space in my home. Once we finish building the nursery, we also hope to continue this class using the space
