It's not easy to teach a child to be compassionate, grateful and give back to others whenever possible. So I was really happy to find this video through a student that goes to the Jakarta International School, a school which Yayasan Usaha Mulia is hoping to build a long-lasting relationship with.
The Jakarta International School has a special Service Learning division where the school hopes to include notions of service (community work) in students' daily life. The high school has several clubs dedicated to local NGOs and helps in many fields including working with orphanages, Habitat for Humanity, environmental work, medical assistance, etc.
I really am at awe with what kids can do these days when they put their mind to it. These students at JIS are showing us that any kind of help, however small, can make a difference. And I hope that other schools and students can learn from this :)
