Real Working Lecture (KKN): A Social Working for Students


Real Working Lecture is the referred English term of Kuliah Kerja Nyata (KKN), a compulsory program of my university (GMU) that is mandated to every student who has already reached 110 credits of his/her study requirements. As a lecture subject, it has its own point for GPA (IP). As a real application, it is such a series of social working program.

In the Strategic Plans document of my university, it is stated that RWL is aimed to be a vehicle to implement science which is learned in classes into real life with the society. Therefore, RWL goes more specific than ordinary social working program (although both of RWL and social working are not profit-oriented) for it inquires students to apply their major in a quite specific theme.

Alright, that’s enough about the theory! :p

Indeed, it is quite complicated for us to learn the job algorithm since it has series of operating procedures. To compose this event, we have gathered 32 students from various faculties in our university to be a solid team and have been preparing things for about 6 months.

The main theme of our RWL is briefly about empowering health custom. Every member must compose programs supporting the theme to be arranged into a proposal. My Pharmacy partners plan a socialization of natural medicinal herbs. My Electrical Engineering partner will teach computer for kids. My dentistry partners and I plan for training which involve elementary kids to be Junior Dentists (Dokter Gigi Kecil). Of course there are many more programs to undergo.

Practically, we will stay in 4 houses in the village. Yes, it is just like a home stay, we will share rooms, kitchens, and lavatories with the host family. We will stay altogether for two months, from July 1 to August 30. Quite a long time to know each other, isn’t it? :)

And it seems that I would find many chances to do things in cooking! Yay!

The bothering part of this RWL program for me is: I will probably bear down on my blogging activity (boo-hoo!). Although most of families are already equipped with cell phones, the village we stay in is not improved yet by internet connection and in the mean time we will be ordered to write quite detailed daily reports as well as the full-organized programs to do, so ... well you can imagine that.

For sure, RWL is a duty that takes me to pay a good attention. All of suggestion or advices from experienced people will be very useful for me. Also, I will require all of you, my friends, to wish me luck.
