Jakarta, August 30, 2014 – In order to share the culture of learning and to help break the poverty cycle through educational support for children in Indonesia, PPIA RMIT University held a charity project, called Project O, in collaboration with YCAB Foundation.
Other than to raise funds to help underprivileged children to get a better education, the project also aimed to introduce Indonesian arts and culture to the Melbourne society.
With this project, PPIA RMIT University was hoping to minimize the number of underprivileged children and pave the way for young Indonesians in Australia to be agents of change in Indonesia.
This year, Project O was holding The Workshop, a fun get together to experience Indonesian arts and culture. Several workshops were taking place at the event: Batik workshop, Saman Dance workshop, Indonesian cooking workshop, and Angklung workshop. All of the money raised from The Workshop will be donated to YCAB Foundation.
Founder/CEO of YCAB Foundation Veronica Colondam was present to support the event.
Through this project, we hope that we can introduce Indonesian arts and culture to people in Melbourne and motivate the youth to act on the changes required for social changes, especially in the educational sector across Indonesia.
