STEPS Character building Program in West and Central Java

STEPS Character Building Program in West and Central Java Family Care Indonesia volunteers travel to Cirebon, West Java and then to Kuningan. We conducted a mini seminar for 26 Pre-school (PAUD) teachers and distributed a set of STEPS Character Building curriculum to each teacher.

Special appreciation to Pak Kusan in Cigugur, Kuningan who helped us to get in communication with the HIMPAUDI (Himpunan Pendidik dan Tenaga Kependidikan Anak Usia Dini Indonesia) and organize a teachers meeting.

After Cirebon we continued our journey to the area of Jogjakarta, Central Java in a small village called Boro. Our dear friends, Pak Hartono and his wife Wita manage a “Back to Nature” Education center called “Dolan Deso”.

They are helping us to contact very remote Pre-school (PAUD) teachers in the surrounding area and invite them to the center where they can receive a copy of the STEPS Character Building curriculum and instruction on how to use the program. These copies are distributed individually to teachers as they come to the center.

Thanks to those who sponsor the STEPS Character Building curriculum and made it possible for us to distribute 60 sets to this area.
