Teaching geography is an annual work program held in public schools. But this year the agenda was held at the Kalasan Anak Alam Community and not at a formal school.

That’s why from the program meeting, our alumni challenge us to teach in community and we accepted the idea,” she said. (Latifah Dian Azhari /JK; Tj.Lak)
