Hello, my name is Ira Fitriani. I work as an accounting staff at Taman Baca Inovator (TBI) Foundation, replacing Mbak Novitasari Saputri, the first and previous accounting staff at TBI, who had worked at the foundation since 2016. I have now been working for three months at the TBI headquarters.
In this past three months, I have been helping with several events for TBI. One of the events was Literacy Night which was held on 20 July 2018 at 2Madison Kemang. In the event themed Digital Literacy, I was involved on the ground and acted as the operator for presentation and it was my first experience as a part of an event. I have never experienced a similar situation before, and I think my first experience was very fun.
The event opened my mind, showing me that a foundation is not merely doing charity works and accepting various donations (including books) to develop. There are also other social activities such as gathering and social network events to connect with other communities and individuals which can help boost literacy in Indonesia.
Literacy Night was a fun event to understand deeper about the importance of developing literacy in Indonesia. The event detailed out the positive aspects of the movements as well as addressed how to handle the negative sides of this digital era, in line with its theme.
I hope this event could help spread the enthusiasm to develop literacy in Indonesia. Let’s work together to develop education in Indonesia!
