YOU CAN BE A GUIDING LIGHT FOR OTHERS TODAY
Some time people can be lost,confused, frustrated, and not knowing what to do. It will be great if helping hands are coming without being asked and giving a solution to our problems. This world is a beautiful place but yet there are so many problems that we have to deal with .New problems always coming and more facts of life must be faced.With these facts on our way, "CAN WE BE A GUIDING LIGHT FOR OTHERS " or What can be done to make the world to be a better place "today"?
There are so many tribes, races,values and habits which make things complicated. But there is a universal thing which all walks of life will be agreed upon , that is tender loving care or Kindness or LOVE to others. Some times it is also difficult just to express our care for others or love but with the kindness attitude things can be done easier..( or will it ? ........ I think I need some one with the expertise to help me to understand it better , please help, any one ? ). In Roslin orphanage there so many things that can be used as the means to help or giving sun shine to some others in darkness situation which they will not be having any progress in life ( unless if some helping hands are coming for them).Passing your ideas or thoughts can be a jump start and dealing with small children we must equipt our self with some plays or games and so far through singing we can teach the children so many things easier.The majority of the people surrounding the orphanage is limited in their views about facing the facts of life.Their minds and thoughts can be broaden and needs to be shaped up. Departing for these facts Roslin orphanage has made the initiation and decided to make a free library to the villagers. We have slowly built the library building which nearly completed and we have also a mobile library project for it ( for those who can't afford to come to the orphanage's library ). We have one car already available for this project to be started .Our problem at the moment is how to provide the books adequately for both static and mobile library projects. Any of you who wants to particitipate are welcome
IT IS A JOY TO BE ABLE TO GUIDE SOME OF THE CHILDREN
The villagers are speaking in Bahasa Indonesia and our prime goal is to provide good books for the Primary and secondary school students. Any educational books will be great as well for everyone to read especially for the adult villagers, such as books about agricultural skills and practical daily related matters such as how to do carpenter's work, electrician and etc. At the moment I am looking for books about how to prevent Malaria and how to manage a clean and healthy environment. Sanitation matters almost non existance to the villager's daily living as they do not have enough clean water for their daily needs.It is quite common that they have to walk few kilo meters just for few buckets of their drinking water. The rain fall is limited and the clean water is too deep to get ( average of 60 to 100 meters deep).
