The sandy, dusty, rocky, and bumpy road are an obstacle that we must go through to East Bali Poverty Project school everyday. Honestly, sometimes we feel tired when we arrived in school. But that’s problem is not enough to relieve our enthusiasm to teach our students, because they always waiting for us.
Especially when we look at their happy expression and enjoyment during the music lesson.They learn music only three times a week with limited facilities. However, that condition bring up their curiosity and excitement. When we showed the music instruments that we bring, they snatch away each other. Of course, everyone wants to play the instruments.
The limited of time and facilities never fade our spirit for share the knowledge that we have, same with our students that are always enthusiastic to learn. Until now, there are some students that able to play music instrument such as guitar, piano, flute, and kajon. Moreover, some students can arrange a song. They sing their own song on the school special day like National Education Day and Independence Day. How proud are we as their teacher!
Because of their music lessons, some students have a dream to become a musician. For the future, we hope that the simplicity could be useful and make their dreams comes true. Thank you very much for all of the donors, so our students can learn until now. Together, with your help, we can be a witness for their success later.
