By: Sahat, Co-Director Aceh
This week I had my first full days working at the IHF Aceh center, as I have recently transferred from Medan to Aceh. I was able to train with Emma and Kristine at the center for a short time before they left for the IHF Jakarta center. During my time with them, they trained me on everything about how the center works. They introduced me to the classes and the children at the center. They are the best co-directors! At first I was worried about handling everything by myself, but all is running well so far. The children are very good here; the classes are going well because they are amazing students.
I feel very blessed to be here. The children have a big curiosity to learn the lessons. It surprised me to see that children come extra early to the center because they want to learn more. They come early to read books in the library and discuss their homework with the teachers at the center. I like being a part of their life here and the people are very friendly; they love to meet new-comers and open their hearts to everybody.
We have great local teachers to help us teach the classes at the center. They are generous teachers and willing to share their time and their knowledge with the children. They do this work without getting anything back in return. These experiences have added many unforgettable moments in my life. I will never forget this!
