Reach Out To Asia (ROTA) has successfully concluded a trip to Indonesia where 24 ROTA volunteers from Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) traveled to enhance access to education for children in Al Bayat village, Indonesia. The trip was part of ROTA’s International Outreach Program, sponsored by Vodafone Qatar.
The Indonesia trip, which follows a joint ROTA-Vodafone Qatar trip to Cambodia in February, was launched in partnership with HBKU and Qatar University. The HBKU students who participated in this voluntary trip to Al Bayat village were able to put the educational and leadership skills they have learned into practice; sharing their enthusiasm for learning with local students and educators.
For participants, the aim of the trip was to help the students build an appreciation for the value and benefits of taking on volunteer work to improve their communities. Cross-cultural awareness and the unbreakable link between education and development were central themes of the program.
