By Rani Robelus
 
AUA Mosaic Fellowship recipient Rani is spending a year serving as an English teacher and a video tutor in Yogyakarta, Indonesia through VIA. To find an amazing volunteer opportunity, search the AUA Directory of Recommended Organizations© today.
 

      In the various villages and towns of Indonesia, teenagers and young people are encouraged to develop  potential, creativity and technical mastery by creating their own videos at Kampung Halaman. Along with videography, the teens and young people become aware of their potential and see themselves as agents of change who understand the circumstances around them. Unofficial Ambassador Rani is currently helping adolescents in Indonesia communicate through media and also to produce film that is used to understand many issues in greater depth, such as the relationship between cultural and religious traditions with modern life, poverty, the role of women, and the impact of natural disasters and so forth. Take a look below at Rani’s video about this wonderful foundation that encourages a large demographic of Indonesia
