BECOMING A “RELAWAN”
R: Really, it seems that life is meaningless without sharing.
We must have heard this sentence pretty often in our daily life. Sometimes we find people who have felt content with their life but still feel something is missing. When analyze deeper, it turns out that the missing thing is the sense of sharing.
E: Essentially, what can we share?
Questions like these often come up when we begin to have a sense of sharing. Actually, we can share anything, be it time, smile, energy and money. So, no need to think hard to consider about what we want to share. Match it up with our own ability.
L: Length of time we should save to be a volunteer, is it long?
If it’s a matter of time, it goes back to each individual and what program we choose. At Taman Baca Inovator, there are a variety of volunteer programs. Some of them only take four hours, 8 hours and even a whole day. There are possibilities to work both on weekdays and on week end, we can adjust it with each individual’s the schedule.
A: An easy way to see the volunteering activities, is there any?
In this day and age, all things are made easier, let alone just looking for information about volunteer activities. At Taman Baca Inovator, we share every volunteer program on Instagram @tamanbacainivator and usually we will update the activity on the website www.indorelawan.org
W: Which regions become the target of volunteering activities?
If you want to be a volunteer, it can be anywhere depending on which agency. But for Taman Baca Inovator, activities are usually held in the Jakarta area and around taman baca. Our head office is located in Jakarta, while the taman baca is spread in several sites in Indonesia, including: South Sumatra, Tangerang, Bekasi, Bogor, West Bandung, Jember, North Sulawesi and Tanimbar.
A: A volunteer, what can we get from it?
We will certainly be able to make new friends, new relationships, new knowledge, new science, new experiences and new shirts if we have completed four volunteering activities in Taman Baca Inovator. So, for the volunteers who have joined TBI activities several times, we usually give extra appreciations such as a volunteer shirt. Here are some of the testimonials from volunteers:
