lobal Citizen Corps Indonesia leaders: Chyntia, Febrina, Meriny, and Siti have an initiative to create KAPELA (Kawan Peduli Belajar) which is a social action on education under the auspices of GCC Indonesia. KAPELA was founded at Al-Falah School Bantar Gebang, Bekasi â€“a location in close proximity to the final waste disposal sites. Most of the students are underprivileged children, working as scavengers. This action focuses on developing media and alternative teaching methods (by modeling) and teacher empowerment. It seeks to formulate a fun learning method in the hope to engage better with the students. Departing from the idea that quality education belongs to all, the action aims to raise the awareness on the importance of education for the underprivileged children. Also it seeks to improve the quality of volunteer that teaches in this school.
K A P E L A
The first action of KAPELA was held on Saturday, November 26, 2011. Chyntia, Febrina, and Wulan taught the children using songs, games, and fairy tales as a medium to teach in the reading class. The Kapela teachers invited students to sing the ABC song and play games. Then the teachers wrote the order of the alphabet, but some alphabets were eliminated, and the students were asked to fill in the missing alphabet.The teachers mentioned a few words, and the students should be able to write these words on the whiteboard one by one. Pupils were very enthusiastic and happy to follow the lessons. Aside of teaching the children, assisted by Rusli, GCC Indonesia Program Officer, KAPELA shared with teachers in this school about how to motivate students and parents to remain concerned with education. KAPELA also shared knowledge and experience of teaching by introducing some alternative methods of teaching such as learning through songs, stories, games, flash cards, etc, the aforementioned methods are applicable to improve the quality of learning. KAPELA team members will continue this action at the same place and will teach by utilizing creative media (non-tech) in January 2012.
Al-Falah School is a school of equality, founded independently by Mrs Sari. With her passion for society empowerment, she founded the school in her own expenses. This bamboo-walled school provides some educational programs, including early childhood education (early childhood), Package A (equivalent to elementary school), Package B (Equivalent to Junior High) and Package C (Equivalent to high school) it were all specifically targeted for children who dropped out of school and or scavenger. Al-Falah School also open classes for reading, writing, arithmetic, also class for reading and writing Quran. It is free of charge, however the students are required to deposit Rp 3,000, - per month for the cost of national tests later on.
HIV & AIDS Public Discussion
G C C
ast Saturday (December 10), Global Citizen Corps Indonesia leaders with Indonesian Youth Health Ambassadors (IYHA) held a public discussion about HIV & AIDS in Mercy Corps Office Jakarta. The aim was to provide open discussion and a space for sharing experiences related to HIV & AIDS issues among 27 invited participants from several universities and high schools.
“It is bad enough that people are dying of AIDS, but no one should die of ignorance.” Elizabeth Taylor
The discussion was begun with the introduction of GCC and IYHA, then the introductory of HIV & AIDS itself. Note that based from Komisi Penanggulangan AIDS newest update, we’re now using the term HIV & AIDS instead of HIV/AIDS. discussion situation
It is important to differentiate HIV and AIDS through their definition and the medical treatment given. Furthermore, the participants were also shown the facts about its transmission risks, the phases, syndrome indication, preventions, treatments, and some myths which were medically doubted. 14
From such cases, participants had a big time discussing in groups about the dangerous of discrimination, prejudice, and ignorance—which is based from lack of knowledge, and thus giving the solutions based from medical facts and human rights—noticing that Dec 10 was a human rights day, so it should be included. “With 27 participants, the public discussion has made me eager to make changes in my local society. Moreover, I also am just inspired to make research about HIV & AIDS,” said Achmad Reza Mardian (20 year old) participant from Faculty of Nursing, University of Indonesia.
Raising awareness about global health issues like HIV & AIDS has been one of Global Citizen Corps Indonesia agenda. Sure it is aimed for all people, not only for those who are based from health-study, but also for other people regardless of educational background, ages, gender, etc. “I was attracted to join this discussion because I really want to know about HIV & AIDS issues these days. Although I’m not coming from health-studies, I have a concern here somehow. At first, it was kinda blur but later on it is great to know more about human rights and HIV & AIDS, also to have some friends from different backgrounds. I hope I can share the knowledge I’ve just had here,” said Niat Prihartini (18 year old), from Javanese Literature Studies, University of Indonesia. HIV & AIDS Public Discussion at Mercy Corps Office Jakarta was initiated by GCC Indonesia 2011 Leaders: Anggraini Sariastuti, Nikita Dewayani, Rahmat Sah Saragih, and Sulistiani
“Make your movement to help people, don’t just wait from another and don’t be afraid to make changes.”
My name is Gladhys Elliona Syahutari. I am one of the Global Citizen Corps Leaders 2010/2011. I come from Depok and studied in SMAN 55 Jakarta. In this 2011/2012 school year, I am selected to become an exchange student to United States, in Youth Exchange and Study (YES) a scholarship provided by U.S Department of State. I am one of 70 YES participants from Indonesia this year.
In America, I live with a host family. I am hosted in the state of Iowa, in a small town called Norway, with the population 602, it’s a typical farming community, opposite with the crowded Jakarta. But my family lives in the countryside and has 3 acres of land. Pretty much corn, beans and ranch near my house. I live near the second largest city in Iowa, Cedar Rapids, usually we shop and hangout there and most of people from my community work in Cedar Rapids too. Benton Community High School in Van Horne, 20 minutes driving from my house, it’s kind of far away because my high school is integration of 8 cities in Benton County. My high school has more than 500 students, plus more than 100 middle school students. It’s a medium sized school. I am the only exchange student in the school and the first one after several years. Everyone in school are really excited to having me here and likes to be friend with me, I got a lot of friends from 9th to 12th grade! I’ve been involved in Fall Musical, Speech, Madrigal play and Show Choir crew. We often think that our government is not right, they corrupt, and don’t care about the people and the needy, but hey, the same thing happens too here. I realize that no government in the world is perfect, even the prosper countries, but we can make changes, not only by protesting and don’t do any real thing to make it happen. 16
We sometimes think that, some of our culture is tacky and out of date. Maybe we say that American music or western culture is better than us. I say you are definitely wrong. Why? Because what I see from here, every culture in the world is unique, precious and irreplaceable. That makes the world more colorful.
I got a lot of friends from different countries as an exchange student. We have to promote our culture no matter what. Guess what, people here really like it, my campursari, dangdut, batik skirt or batik dress from my country, everyone likes it. They always give compliment it, because it is different and moreover those differences show the diversity of the world which is very colorful. I have to keep the good attitude here too, because I have to represent my country and make a good impression about people in Indonesia. I have to be a good ambassador. I bring Indonesian name above me. That’s what I think most changing me here. I have to be ambassador of myself first so than I can learn to be the ambassador for Indonesia. Introspective, respective and responsibility are the keys. It’s definitely a good move to start our new year. Learn more about yourself and stay on the good attitude.
G C C
My advice, for those who want to join the student exchange or study abroad, keep open minded, because you will face things that are not normally you face while you’re at home. You’re also going to be a special kid. Because people here are interested to learn new things from other parts of the world and you will be the object. So you must continue being spirited in your study, you will get a lot of knowledge and connections, who knows, not any longer, maybe it’s your turn to have special experience like this 17

CHA(i)RITY FOR KIDS Public Discussion
In order to celebrate World Mental Health Day in October and GCCâ€™ Action Month for Public Health in December, Indonesian Youth Health Ambassadors (IYHA) and Global Citizen Corps Indonesia (GCC Indonesia) paid a visit to Panti Tuna Grahita Belaian Kasih in Kalideres, a home for the children with special needs in West Jakarta.The event was called CHA(i)RITY FOR KIDS and was held on the 20th of November 2011 with 22 participants (16 attending and 6 passive donators).
G C C
Dea Safira (www.deabasori.com), the Coordinator of this action campaign decided to plan an action which consisting of drawing and coloring on a white chair. Dea was inspired from Jane Aldridgeâ€™s Charity for Branded with the same kind of activity. Fundraising was held to purchase two white chairs and two sets of permanent markers. The aim of this event was to increase awareness about the children with special needs and break down barriers using a fun and communicative approach.
Mental health as public health issue is very important. Center for Disease Control stated that mental health is integral to overall health and wellbeing and should be treated with the same urgency as physical health.
Among 90 children with special needs, there were only 10-15 children who could participate due to their condition but that did not stop the participants from having fun with the children. GCC Indonesia and IYHA hope that the participants will be able to understand children mental health issue through this action campaign. Many participants said that this event were very memorable and they going to share their experience with other people.
Expected PC Games of 2012
o we all know what 2011 has in store for us, there are some great titles up there. Elder Scrolls Skyrim; Portal 2 and Star Wars the Old Republic are just some of the titles waiting to be unleashed upon gamers this year. But since we know what 2011 has to offer, we can look ahead to 2012, and if you’re not too worried about the impeding Mayan doom we can start to dig a little deeper and see what we can find.
G A M E S
8. Saints Row 3 THQ recently announced that they would be putting out a brand new chapter into the series with a release date due in Fiscal 2012 and is being developed by Volition Inc. Danny Bilson of THQ stated, “When you see Saints Row 3, it’s the visual quality of the GTA IV universe. It goes up there. It still has the wacky, insane stuff. It’s going to get really big and really loud in December. And as soon as you see the assets, the gamers will go: ‘Oh, I know what they invested in. The technology.’
10. Wa rh ammer 40k Dark Millenni um The new MMORPG from developer Vigil games which is a shooter based on the Warhammer 40k universe which promised huge fire-fights as well as player formed squads and flanking and cover mechanics. MMO shooters have not been faring well over the past year – with games like APB going offline within the first 3 months and is now coming back as a free to play MMO. But Vigil does have some RPG experience behind them with games like Darksiders. And if it fairs better than its predecessor Warhammer Online it could even be a Wow beater.
7. Modern Warfare 3
9. Fallout Online
This will surely be a game that millions will buy even though it may turn out to be a little bit disappointing just like the last instalment has been for me. Activision seems to try too hard to rush to get the games out every year and don’t really seem to take into consideration the quality of their games. They seem in too much of a hurry to milk the money out of millions of fans. However, I may be wrong. The online gameplay is certainly addictive. And if developed right it could be the best of the CoD series yet.
A few years back the company Interplay which was behind the Fallout 1 and 2 titles licensed Fallout from its current owner Bethesda Softworks to create an MMO on the series. Speaking to Edge Magazine, Interplay president Eric Caen said, “We have 90 people working on it. Even in January 2009, you were already able to move across the world.” The game is scheduled to begin beta testing in 2012.
6. StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm
Caen then went on to say: An MMOG must be a lot deeper than a standalone game. It’s not a shooting game we’re making. You can shoot, but it’s a very small portion of the game. The game itself is about reconstructing the world. What is unique about our project is how we’re trying to get it into many communication systems. This is a big problem for World Of Warcraft, because the fantasy universe is not compatible with modern communication systems. It would be odd to receive an SMS from a troll. But in a postapocalyptic world… But would the desolate apocalyptic world like the one in Fallout feel the same if it was crawling with another 30,000 or so people.
Blizzard has recently announced that they plan to release at least two games by the end of 2012. There’s is still some speculation to what the games may be but the biggest contenders are Diablo III and the StarCraft 2 expansion Heart of the Swarm
5. Diablo III “We’re developing Diablo III to be the definitive action role-playing game, and a true continuation of the Diablo series.” – Blizzard
2. Grand theft auto V This game was announced on the same day as Grand Theft Auto 3’s 10th anniversary. Rockstar Games in pre-production called this game (code name) “Rush” and Take-Two was initially named as the production company to keep the game a secret. On 3 November 2011, Rockstar Games confirmed that the game will take place in Los Santos and the surrounding countryside - rather than the entire State of San Andreas (as in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas).
The next instalment of the series features exiting new classes like the witch doctor and returning classes like the barbarian have been completely revamped. A new graphics engine also promises to display characters in a beautiful, fully 3D environment.
4. Battlefield 3 EA and Dice’s latest ‘trailer’ of the game has to be a little bit of a disappointment to me due to the fact it didn’t reveal much at all about the game. However that’s not to say that that the game won’t be great, the series really has produced some excellent games and I am a much bigger fan of the series than I am of the CoD franchise. Dice have been busy over the past year providing us with Bad Company 2, BFBC2: Vietnam and the new medal of honour so hopefully now they have turned their full attention to BF3.
Rockstar Games’ parent company, Take-Two Interactive’s shares jumped seven percent following the first trailer for the game that was released on 2 November 2011.
1. Half-Life 2: Episode 3 First announced in 2006….I’ll just let that sink in a moment and provide enough time for you to ask, “why the hell has it taken them over 6 years to get this game out!” And let me remind you, this is no entirely new game, it’s a sequel which usually only take about 2 or 3 years.
3. BioShock: Infinite The third game in the BioShock series breaks away from its underwater environment and takes the player to a floating city held up by dirigibles called Columbia.
The game is set in 1912 and players play as Booker DeWitt who is a former private detective. Strange things start to happen as the city disappears into the clouds. Be prepared for some spooky encounters just like those in the first two BioShocks.
However, if they have put 6 years into this game, I think it’s pretty much of a given that this will be a game which will be remembered.
You’ll likely find that you begin to make real progress on a project that may have been stagnating for a while, Aries. You can’t help but feel gratified that all of your hard work is finally beginning to pay off. Good for you! You have earned every success that is due to come your way. But don’t rest on your laurels! Continue to work hard so that you can achieve even greater recognition.
Today you’ll likely awake, look around your home environment, and realize that there is much room for improvement. Fortunately, you are just the person for the job, Taurus! You are creative and have tremendous decorating talent (even if you don’t realize it). Since it’s likely that you will have some visitors this evening, why not spend the day reorganizing and sprucing up your home. Add homey touches with groupings of framed family photographs on one table and a favorite collection on another. It doesn’t take money to make a home feel welcoming, just love. You are a hard and conscientious worker, Gemini, and certainly have been applying your skills and doing your best for some time now.

Continue to work hard and be patient and soon it will all prove worthwhile.
You may find yourself thinking of looking for a new job in order to increase your income, Cancer. But there is probably no need to take such a drastic step. It’s possible that your boss has been considering giving you a raise - you may soon be pleasantly surprised. If your money concerns are only short-term, consider asking a family member for a loan at a low interest rate. Once you’re back on your feet, you’ll be able to pay it off in no time.
H O R O S C O P E
You have a lot of charm and tremendous social skills, Leo. This is an unbeatable combination, and is especially strengthened with the current astral energy. Be sure to go the extra mile today, even if you aren’t in the mood to do so.

Having role models in this new year can push us to be more like them which can put some spirit in us to do things. In Indonesia, we can take a look at how Agnes Monica reaches her dreams. She has got a quote that says ‘Dream, Believe, and Make it happens.’ It is such an inspiring quote, and so she is. It doesn’t matter how high and unbelievable her dreams are, she believes in herself a 100% that she can make it happens, then it really does happen!
From India, Gandhi inspires many people around the world. He has got a great hunger strike. Everyone knows him as an inspiring man, but he’s never conceited about that. ‘Be the change you want to see’ is one of his best quote. He expects that people in the world can be the change, can be an inspiration for each other, and influence their selves to be what they want, what they have been dreaming about their selves. 32
Taiwan also has got a role model. As we know Master Cheng Yen as a Buddhist nun, she inspired people with grassroots approach. She began by forming a local charity organization, called Tzu Chi Foundation. With her followers, together they gave rice to the poor in neighboring communities. As the time goes by, she has got more followers everyday. More people are aware about this issue, moreover, they aren’t only aware about poverty that has been becoming one of the big issues in the world, but also about climate change. She has got a very big heart to work in grassroots level and to care the poor.
Freddie Highmore started playing in a movie and television since he was a kid. He is a teenage actor who comes from London who also inspires many other children, preteens, and teenagers at his age. He is one of the famous actors from England. He played in Finding Neverland, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Arthur and The Invisibles, and August Rush. As an actor, he doesn’t want all of the attention and privilege from his friends and family, he only wants to live normal like an ordinary teenage boy. What he has been doing on screen really influences many viewers and being a humble person reminds people that we’re all the same, just the way we interpret things that makes us different. Moreover, he also concerns about his own education, currently he is studying in Cambridge University.
