Yogyakarta- There is a different face on Sidang Tanwir (Tanwir Meeting) II Nasyiatul Aisyiyah. The committee deliberately provides Edu Care Service, a recreational area at the arena of Sidang Tanwir II. The participants who bring their children don't have to worry in taking part in the meeting.

According to Edu Care manager, Husnul Khotimah, the participants can leave their children to Tim Rekreasi Anak (Children Recreation Team) during the meeting. Some children activities, according to Husnul, are child care, educational games using APE, drawing, and watching movies.

The committee that provides the team during the event involving women has some purposes. "Nasyiatul Aisyiyah is very identical with empowering women and children. That's why we start from our closest environment like this Tanwir II in Jogja,” said Diah Puspitarini as the committee chair. She hopes this will be imitated in other meetings so that the events will be more friendly to women. At least it has been started in Muhammadiyah organization.
