The Udayana University Communication Science Student Association (HIMANIKA) has completed the entire series of Communication Vaganza 2023 Social Service activities on Sunday, September 10 2023 with the theme "Through Rhythms of Ocean to Relieve The Wanderlust Era." This activity took place at the Bali Children's Lentera Foundation, 3rd floor of Kumbasari Market, Denpasar and was also attended by the Bali Social Project.
This year's Vaganza Communication Social Service will take place three times, namely the first week on August 27 2023, the second week on September 3 2023, and the peak today on September 10 2023. The series of social service activities in the first week, namely the opening and handing over of certificates to the General Chair of the Bali Children's Lentera Foundation, followed by English and calistung learning activities. Then there are further learning activities for English and Calistung in the second week.
In the third week (10/9), which was the peak day and the last day of the 2023 Vaganza Communication Social Service, donations and mementos were handed over from Trikaya Educare and several FISIP lecturers at Udayana University to the Bali Children's Lentera Foundation. The donations that have been given are 7 packages of stationery, 10 toys, 41 reading books, 30 gifts and some cash. Apart from that, the children of the Bali Lentera Children's Foundation were also introduced to one of Indonesian culture, namely wayang performances which are packaged in simple language that is easy for children to understand. This puppet show by one of the Communication Science students at Udayana University tells the story of the Kancil fairy tale which conveys a message that children should not become greedy and selfish individuals.
The peak of this social service is packaged in playing and having fun activities with the foundation's children. They are grouped into five groups and given different colored ribbons. At the end of the game, the committee in charge gives prizes to the group that managed to win the game.
The social service activity closed with the distribution of gifts and group photos as souvenirs. "With this donation, hopefully the children of the Bali Children's Lentera Foundation can learn to read and play so that the children don't just focus on gadgets." said I Dewa Ayu Sugiarica Joni, S.Sos., MA., as Coordinator of the Communication Science Study Program at Udayana University. He also added that the collaboration between the Bali Children's Lentera Foundation and Communication Sciences at Udayana University would continue.
