COMMUNICATING THE PROGRAM WITH THE COMMUNITY
In doing a project, for sure, community takes a very important part. The success of a project is also determined by the involvement of the community in the project done. Therefore, since the begining of the program, before deciding the target place, we had an observation for some orphanage. In the observation, besides checking for the place and the kids, we communicated our plan with the community in the target place. We met the orphanage boards and some of the people around the orphanage.
By communicating our plan since the begining, we have found its easier in implementing our plan. For instance, during running the program, the community have been helping us by preparing for drinks or meals. We also feel welcomed. The involvement of the community in the program has helped us alot in finishing the planned activities. Realizing their importance, we always keep our good communication with the community. Therefore, we can have good relationship during the program and even after the program finished. Therefore, in the future, as we have done with the program, the community can still continue the program we have started.
