Klub Sinau on NonProfit Commons
By Marcel Mosswood
Klub Sinau, A Nonprofit Family Learning Center In RL Come to The SecondLife Through The Nonprofit Commons (NPC)
I'm so thankful for the Nonprofit Commons in SecondLife for the parcel so I can build a virtual office for my nonprofit family learning center in the real-world, Klub Sinau, among the other nonprofit organizations. With this virtual office, I hope what we are striving for at the Klub Sinau will be known internationally.
Klub Sinau ("Klub" has a similar meaning with “club” in English, Sinau is Javanese means learning) is an institution founded by four homeschooling families in Sidoarjo, a small town on the island of Java - Indonesia in 2007. Starting from a desire to mutually help our children's learning process, in the following years, Klub Sinau has developed into a national institution, and now it has become an institution that serves as an information center about homeschooling for anyone who wants to implement homeschooling in Indonesia.
So, this virtual office will contain information about Klub Sinau activities, learning materials, and parenting ideas which can be read for free. If you want to know about the implementation of homeschooling in Indonesia and get the benefits, please visit Klub Sinau virtual office at Nonprofit Commons: LM : Aloft Nonprofit Commons (125/69/23)
From the beginning I’ve joined SecondLife I knew about NPC, but because I live in Indonesia, which has a timezone difference of 14 hours from SLT, I often can't attend the meetings. Several times I visited the two NPC sims and saw various nonprofit organizations there, I wish I could have a virtual office there and be able to collaborate with them or at least listen to their stories in fighting for their ideals, of course, it will be very fun and encouraging for me who often work alone in the Klub Sinau. As you can see, I'm so excited to be a part of Nonprofit Commons in SecondLife right now.
In accordance with the Klub Sinau vision and mission, I represent this virtual office in a very homey house model. Each room represents a section served by the Klub Sinau . When you enter the house, you can see a welcoming room. The first door is access to the office and family room, this office will connect you to the Klub Sinau's admin in the real-world. After that you will enter a room that is quite wide, here you will see a portfolio of the kids in the Klub Sinau who are doing activities together. Then you will find a door leading to the garage, this is a craft room where you can find various craft ideas and photos of the kids' activities working on a craft together. From the first room, if you choose to go up through the stairs, you will find several rooms that represent various academic subjects, arts, and parenting ideas.
I hope this virtual office will become the center of ideas for learning in the family. So that we can help more families to educate their children.
