Ayo Sekolah!

Ayo Sekolah - Ayo Kuliah (translates to something like "let's go to school - let's go to college") is a charity organization by Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Jakarta that helps out underprivileged families to send their kids to school and college. I happen to be a part of this group in my parish, St. Laurensius. Last weekend, our parish celebrated our anniversary and held a 2-day fair/bazaar. ASAK (Ayo Sekolah - Ayo Kuliah) participated in this fair, too. Since our theme is education, we had 300 custom hand-wrapped chocolate bars given out to visitors who could answer general-knowledge questions based on their age or school levels. It was such a fun booth! Crowd would form like a snowball and people would stay on to listen to others being questioned because at the end of the day, they learned at least a new fact. I, too, learned a lot of new things :)

We've been gathering donors and sponsors for 9 months now and schools were just reopening recently so we made thank-you slash update cards to give out to our sponsors and donors. On the cover is a papercut I made in the shape of a dove made up of the faces of our sponsored children reflecting our prayers for our sponsors and donors that they be granted peace through and through.
