As a student, the responsibility of developing society was a necessity. In addition to getting enough knowledge, students needed a laboratory to practice all theories. This was done by three students at the University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) in Poland.
They were Fahreza Firdaus Permana from Government Science, Emeralda Narulita Halim and Akhmad Syafik from Psychology Department. Through the International Educations 2.0 AIESEC UMM program, they had been in Poland since 11 January. While there, Emerelda and her friends were divided into several places.
Fahreza himself worked in the health sector in the city of Wroclaw, a city located in the west of Poland. While Emeralda and Syafik were educators in Kindergarten (TK) of Publiczne Przedszkole Nr 25 Uniwersytet Opolski in Opele City, Southern Poland with a population of around 128,000.
