A child without imagination is no longer a child. Visit 100 children in the orphanage Al Kaaf in Jabung village 25 km east of Malang. Leave your footprint behind in another world. What you get in return, you will know once you live the experience.
One day tour to the orphanage Al Kaaf
You will leave in the morning in the direction of Pakis, which is a slightly bigger village near Jabung and on the main road. In Pakis you will turn left after the market to get to the village Jabung, where you will find the orphanage Al Kaaf.
The youngest children are ‘at home’ the main part of the day, while the older ones drop in starting at 11 am. Relax in an atmosphere that is special, a Muslim community in a small village in East Java. Just see what is going on, join in, taste the children’s spirit and boost their self esteem, and exchange knowledge. If you feel at ease and have seen the area of the orphanage, start organizing your activity. You can't expect 100 children to come along. Pick those who are interested and naturally some others will follow.
You are also free to come along on their daily activities including praying at the mosk, cleaning, cooking, doing homework, etc.
Preparations before departure to the orphanage Al Kaaf
