4. Problems We Had To Overcome
There are a lot of problem we had to overcome. First we were confused in deciding the theme. Finally we decided “Family Violence” as our theme because family violence is a global problem that all of us had to Overcome. But looking the data and statistics about family violence is the main problem in this theme because family violence is hidden crime. We have to looking around the internet and ask permission for taking the data and statistics. The second obstacle was each of us has our own activities in organization or school events. Each of us became the committee in our school events. And there were still a lot of school events that we had to do. The third obstacle is the internet access didn’t give useful contributions, because the internet sometimes works slowly. And we also lack of electronic tools such as digital camera, scanner, and computer software. But we were lucky because one of us had a laptop, so we could do this project anywhere. The fourth obstacle was inadequate of time. We had to work efficiently because we had school home work that we had to finish and we had to study for school test besides working this website. It was hard to manage our time. Sometime we had to overwork. To solve this problem we helped each other to finish our home work. We were lucky we had nice friends who could help us doing our homework. The fifth obstacle was we lived in small city and it was far away from the capital city and governmental institution. It was difficult for us to contact the governmental institution. But all of those obstacles didn’t put down our spirit and wish to help others especially family violence victims, because they need our hands to stand up. When we went deeper and deeper in this social problem we feel that we had to do something more and more to help them. We want to create a better world for everyone without any exception.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Through this project we have contact many organization both in our country and international such as UNICEF, WHO, and FVPF, in order to get data, information, and permission of taking the organizations URL into our website. We also display about our project and family violence awareness in our school magazine named “EXCELLENT”. Our Schoolmates, teachers, and headmaster become know more about the fact of family violence and give us support in finishing this website. They said they would help us anything they can.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Simply put, our project about family violence supports our curriculum. Our curriculum states that violence should be eradicated from our world. Human rights forbid any kinds of violence, especially in the family. We are sure that all of religions forbid these kind of abuse too. Our website is created to fulfill educational purpose, or we can say that internet is a good method of learning that provides lots of information and data.
