The government of Mojokerto has determined Ngembat Village to be a child-friendly village. However, the village’s current condition does not support any criteria of becoming one. Parents are generally unaware of the importance of their children’s health and education. Ngembat villagers also have low knowledge of entrepreneurship despite having various natural resources. Facilities in the village are good enough, but not used effectively by the villager. Participants of COP Ngembat are obliged to make projects to improve the village’s condition so it met the standard of child-friendly village, through socialization, educating the children, workshops, competitions, and improvement of the facilities.

We did a little trick to make villagers get close to us. We ask for help from sub-village leader to coordinate the villagers, that method was totally successful. After the villagers already close to us, all the programs became easier because they helped us.

We did a lot of programs, physical and non-physical programs. And the impact was big, the villagers now happier when they do their activity. Because we fixed the public facilities, bonding with children, teach them about new things, etc. Almost all of our programs were related with government’s goal, children friendly village
