International Peace Day, 21 September


Poster International Peace Day

Hi peace lovers! ☮

In commemoration of the International Peace Day on 21 September 2014, IIWC has “Picture for Peace” as our action. This “Picture for Peace” tells us about how easy to make a peaceful atmosphere is. Making peace doesn’t have to be in a big scope, we must start it from ourselves and influence the people around us. Therefore, IIWC would love to show you how our Long and Middle Term Volunteers are creating peaceful atmosphere with their target group.
As can be seen from the pictures, the LMTVs and the local people are getting along together. It is not difficult to mingle with the local people. They all know that they have different culture, custom, and habit . Instead of seeing those things as obstacles, they tend to learn how to respect the diversity and live in harmony. Experiencing life in diversity does help them all to improve their capacity in multi dimensions.
Hence, what are you waiting for guys? Let’s spread the smile, spirit, and peace! You can make your own “Picture for Peace” and share it to your friends to make a better world!

Viva volunteer!

Call for Participant Weekend Workcamp Mangkang 20-21 Sept 2014


Background
Mangkang is a fisher and farmer village located in west Semarang. This project has become annually and continuously project organized by IIWC in answering the needs of preserving the coastal side of North Java Sea in Mangkang. About 1,1 km costal line in Mangkang area is now in danger due to the abrasion of the sea, cutting mangrove by local people and heavy force from the river flows. Before, many kinds of fish and shrimps are living there, but now since the condition of the mangrove forest is getting worse, it is quite difficult to find the species anymore. Fisherman also needs to go further to the ocean to fish and it means much work they need to do to earn money. Mangkang is the project site for IIWC’s World Tanabata Action since 2008. It is a global project initiated by NICE Japan then was adopted by CCIVS UNESCO in the beginning of 2008 where volunteerism all over the world through IVS planting trees and hang their wishes in Tanzaku paper on abamboo leaf.
