My Travel Story

by: Momos Nainggolan Start Date: Oct 10, 2017 - End Date: Feb 6, 2018
The desire to serve people has always been the satisfaction in my heart. Be the reason for another person they can smile means so much to me. Hearing them say “thank you” makes me happy and love what I do for them. I realize that serving other people is something fun and beautiful. This awareness arises when I start to enter a university. I often participate in volunteer activities in remote and slums area of West Kalimantan. I serve children and youth by providing free tutoring. They look very happy and always smiling because I serve them with sincere. Since that time, I fell in love to serve more people. So, after college for 8 semesters, I find a way to do a lot of community service activities. And this internship is a perfect way for me to help the community.

This Internship is also in line with the major I take, Public Service. This experience will be the biggest step in my life. I will plunge directly in the service of the community which will give me the experience and knowledge to be prepared for my career in community service. Through this experience, I will also increase my professional capability when I enter the world of work. When entering the world of work later, I want something that can make me more competitive than others. And I believe that this internship will make me more qualified.

The Internship Program is located in Netherlands. The internship is started on 1 February to 30 April 2018. During 3 months, I will be doing community service in particular for labor and immigrants in Netherlands. I will help them, assist them and provide a solution for the problems they face and the rest of that, I will perform administrative activities in the office of the Embassy. On a day off every week, I want to spend the time to explore and visit any place in Netherlands to get to know the culture and wealth of nature in Netherlands.

However, I need your help to bring this mission become real! Although I've been accepted officially, I have to finance this internship by my own. As you need to know, I come from an ordinary family, charge the cost to my parents was difficult. The cost that I need is 5775 Euro. As you know, I was a full-time student and finding funds is a challenge. But this challenge makes me on fire, hahahah

To help the cost of this internship I am working 2 part-time jobs, one as a tutor and one as a typist. I've also been applying for scholarships and I was fortunate to receive a scholarship of 500 $. But it is not enough to cover the entire cost of what I needed. The cost will be used to buy a plane ticket to the Netherlands, visa, the insurance, the cost of house rent, and cost of food and drink and other small fees.

As a 22 years old student from Indonesia, I don’t get a chance like this every day. For that, I hope you are interested to help me to realize this incredible opportunity. I believe that this opportunity not only provides the most rewarding experience in my life but also can change the world for the better while I am doing it.

Any donation will be appreciated, no matter how small. I really appreciate any donation from anyone who is willing to contribute. You guys are the reason this trip is possible. I open the opportunity for anyone to discuss this in person and answer any questions you may have. I'd love to hear from you.

If you can’t donate right now, another thing that helps is if you share this page.
Help Me, Help Us

Best wishes and thank you again!
Lot of Love,
