For this Mission, I need to help one girl to get a better access to education or economic opportunity. I kept thinking how to do this mission until, I remember that I have a friends that started a community and service (CAS) about teaching english to little kids. The CAS is called Riveria. They chose to name this program riveria because the school is located near the river. Here is the photo of evidence when I teach the little kids, especially the little girl about english.…Continue

This past few days we were learning about alternative currency. Basically, alternative currency means that we can only use the money in a certain place. Before this method was exist, there's a same method as this one called barter. Using this method we can trade others people's goods. For example you want a laptop from Mr. B, and Mr. A want to have 10 of your chicken. After both of you reach an agreement finally you can trade. The only disadvantages to this method is that we need to carry…Continue

So in DT class, We are told to make a Solar Cooker for cooking food. Refugee camp in Africa have to cut down woods and burned them, with Solar Cooker they can just use the sun and cook things, the bad thing is that it would take twice longer than using wood or a normal stove. Solar cooker is very useful for the people in that refugee camp because, they don't have to walk many miles searching for woods, and the are wouldn't be polluted, beside Solar cooker is free you don't have to pay if you…Continue

My dad has a factory, from what I heard from my mom is that he uses a lots of transportation like trucks and car. One day my mom was angry because my dad uses 2/10 of these for car fuel, and because of that the money for the electricity and water was not enough.
While I was hearing this conversation I had an Idea. My Idea was to reduce using the car, but that if my dad decides to do that the money that he gets will be reduced, and if it gets reduced still they will have no money to…Continue

Everyday I always use my phone to communicate. However, Sometimes I always run out of a battery in a place where I can't charge. My Idea is that I'm going to put a small solar panel above my hat so it can receive sunlight and turn it into electricity. That way I can Charge my phone wherever I run out of battery in a place where I can't find any electricity. This is the drawing that I make based on the idea that I talked about. …Continue

So to increase food security starting a home garden I think it's a good idea because, when there's a disaster or something that can affect you can just eat something from your own garden. To start a home garden you don't really need a big area. the only thing you need is the seed that most likely will grow in your area. Maybe you could help other people by growing different crops so in the ends you can just share what you get and get a better quality and quantity.

I really want to help people start their own home garden, but before I can do that I need to make a home garden first in my backyard and start in my house first before helping others, because it would be hard if you don't know anything to plant. To learn more about home garden and how to plant the right way, I need to volunteer my self at a local community garden. There I can learn from the experience people that have been gardening for many years. If I wanted to invent something for the…Continue

For this task, I need to choose a "Hero" that had a contribution to do something helpful for other people. In this case after I search google for a while I finally found a hero that I think made a good contribution to the community that he helped. His name is Prigi Arisandi. His basic interest is in saving the Surabaya river.
Their job is to find out valuable information about the river, for example, how badly polluted is the river, what industries are polluting the river etc. Then he…

The set is a huge field with a big crowd of people.
Everyone is shouting out loud their ideas. A big water crisis is about to come
two politicans see all the thoughts and ideas of the shouting crowd poping up on a big screen
you see the politicans discussion about their ideas how to solve the crisis and they come to the solution that they are heading in a different direction as their people do

My friend Teresa and I thought about where in our daily life we could produce energy. Today we went to a fitness centre to sign in and there we had the idea: generating energy while exercising! In gyms people spent hours trying to burn up as many calories as possible. Why not saving this kinetic energy and using…Continue

I liked listening to what Nathaniel Whittemore had to say about Great Africa. Now that I know a little bit more about what has been going on lately down there I have become more determined in my goal to save the lives of the starving and needy people there. I have also wished to go and visit Great Africa my wh*** life because it's a cool place and I enjoy learning more about it a lot.

For me Sunitha Krishnan is a social hero because she fights child trafficking and sexual exploitation. Proactively she recognized the necessity of citizen-state collaboration in the public system that takes care of such victims. In this case of collaboration Sunitha found a smart solution to two major problems: financial restraints and abuse of government power. Government provides the funds for projects – which civil organizations more than often lack. Civil organizations provide a control…Continue
