Several weeks a go, I participated in a two-day workshop organized by the Indonesian Community for Democracy (Komunitas Indonesia untuk Demokrasi - KID) with people all working in the field of social change or development aid. In short, people that want to make a difference somehow. So I asked them WHY they do what they do. And this is the result:
"I am doing what I am to do"
"Because I have a dream"
"Because I want to be meaningful"
"Because I already Kecemplung"
(Because I'm already splashed)
"Because I want to explore the world, but keep close with my children"
"Karena saya senang melihat kerukunan, kerja sama dan melipir"
(Because I like to see harmony, cooperation and quietly sneak off)
"Because there 're limited choices 4 me"
"Cos I'm a human"
"Menarik dan selalu memiliki tantangan"
(Because it's interesting and challenging)
"I want to change & .... ?"
"Karena saya memiliki mimpi"
(Because I have a dream)
"I really be a listener + many issues + money + freedom / so many time I have 212"
