This community and service is not what we thought it was first like. We thought that the community service will be a social work like painting and helping other people that are in needs in the are that is called “Petamburan”. But then this community and service activity is actually an indirect community and service. We are going to do a survey of the people living there for the non-profit organization. Later then with the information, it will be used to help the people there to live a better life.
We will first come at 7 am in the morning for the briefing about the questionnaire. Then we will be commencing the community and service by asking and surveying people living there with a partner. My partner was Cliff and we need to ask 6 family who is living there. The questionnaire is a survey about their life, for example their income, their need for food, the electricity bills, their child and etc. With this we can see their daily lives and how hard they live.After being careful and ask 6 family quietly, we have to collect the data to the person in the organization.
The place that we go to survey is a place near Tanah Abang. It’s a place where there are a lot of people living near the train tracks. They live just beside the tracks that makes it super scary for us to walk as we can be hit by the train. But then we can see that many people here are grateful to be living in the condition they are. With this I learn that we all should be grateful of what we have as many other people might not have as much as us. After we finish surveying, we have lunch and went back home. Even though it was tiring to ask people question that can be sensitive, I am happy with the involvement of this community and service.
