Written by Maftuh Ihsan & Abdurahman Alatas

As a contribution to the society, BLEMBA 24 conducted Charity Day event in SOS Children’s Village in Jakarta (23/11/2019). SOS Children’s Village is a non-profit non-governmental social organization actively supporting children’s rights and committed to provide the orphans on what they need the most -that is- family who would take care of them wholeheartedly.

To bring the concept of learning and playing, the Charity event had various activities divided by age group. There were Career Sharing for high school and university students, Treasure hunt for elementary and middle school children, and lastly the Origami activity for infants and toddlers. The main idea was to make them happy for a whole day.

Came to the main event, participants played “Memorizing like an elephant” from one of the Memory Grand masters, in which they also chose some kids to be involved in the attempt to break MURI record on “Remembering maps with the most participant” held later in December 2019.

Dafry Reksavagita as Chairman of the committee said, “This event held not only to give the kids entertainment, but also to instill the values of kindness, discipline, and leadership, with the idea to prepare them to reach a bright future.”

“This event is the implementation on what BLEMBA 24 students learn from Entrepreneurial Leadership. I’m hoping that this kind of event can be followed by other students as their contribution to society,” said Deputy Director for Jakarta Campus, Dr Yudo Anggoro.
