Testimonial from Wardaya College Volunteer Program
By joining Habitat Voluntary Program, I made a bunch of friends with people all over Indonesia and gained precious experience. Even though it was rather difficult for us to interact with each other due to the pandemic, I felt extremely grateful for the solidarity my team members had.
We all shared our ideas on how to earn the money to donate. At last, we finaled our decision to sell our homemade cookies. By doing so, I picked up various new skills such as baking, products marketing, and etc. As a leader, I also learned how to control and give direction to my fellow members.
WDespite some conflicts our team had, thankfully we always managed to overcome them because all of us were responsible for the mistakes we made. I admit that it felt hard and exhausting sometimes because we were still Seeing many people could be helped with our very own efforts made me feel tremendously delighted and satisfied. I’m definitely looking forward to joining this kind of program again.
