Jakarta, IO – The Kalibaru football field looked different that afternoon. Dozens of neatly-displayed frames attracted the eye and show the work of 35 young photographers, who are also members of Little Journalist Class (KJC). A photo exhibition of children’s work was held from September 16 to 18, 2022. “Ragam Ilusi di Ufuk Pesisir” gave the Kalibaru Football Field, Cilincing, North Jakarta a different vibe. 

KJC members are still relatively young, with most still in primary school (SD). These active children learn photography and how to take good photos. They also have the opportunity to study school subjects such as Math and English every Saturday afternoon, taught by volunteer tutors.

KJC itself displays concern, manifested in positive ways, allowing children to seek a better education and positive activities for the less fortunate ones. One thing everyone should start to care about. (Andi Muhamad)
