Hei…start from this post i will posting about my workcamp in Karimunjawa that held in 7 – 19 July 2009 ago. I just want to post it because just finished the report.

before that, this is a short information about the organization

IIWC is acronym of Indonesia International Work Camp. Informally, IIWC was formed in September 1999 by IPPA Indonesian Planned Parenthood Association, when IPPA held the first work camp in Mijen, Semarang Residence incorporate with NICE, a work camp organization from Japan.

Seeing the success and positive result of the first work camp, NICE suggested IPPA to form a work camp organization. The suggestion was followed by an invitation for NVDA (Network for Voluntary Development in Asia) meeting in Hanoi Vietnam at 9 – 22 January 2000. In this meeting, we discussed how to run a work camp and everything about it. Since then, IIWC was born and has been organizing more than 100 international workcamps in Indonesia and many other international voluntary services with hundreds of either local or international volunteers involved
