The social development of the students and participating students make an important contribution towards promoting lifelong learning. It serves to encourage social inclusion and play an important role to make an active citizen.
During their stay in community, volunteers will also organize awareness raising activities to help promote the understanding of various environmental and development issues. Volunteers will combine artistic activities, such as dramas, painting, story and poetry writing, as well as games and competitions, with educational information.
This program will help volunteers to develop the village and school profiles, organize meetings with school management, students, and community members, in an effort to identify the further needs of the school and the community. Simply by helping to identify said needs, through data sampling and community mapping, volunteers are positively contributing because subsequent projects can thus be developed and prioritized.
