You may remember this guy, Fajar from Indonesia, 13 years old at the time, and a marshal at the RC track in Medan. I wrote a blog post about him back then, which you can read here if you like. I realised I never did write about the fact that some time after the visit, he dropped out of school as his parents couldn’t afford to send him, so I had my local distributor find out if he wanted to keep going to school, and if his parents were OK with me paying for it. They were, so I did.
I just had the good news that 5th grade has begun, as a new school uniform was needed. Cool to see, and it made me think…oh boy here we go again!
My point of today’s post isn’t to say look how awesome I am, (although please feel free to do so also), it is to say that it’s really easy to make a positive difference in someone’s world. It doesn’t take much at all, even a village idiot from Finland can manage it. I don’t know if Fajar’s life will change due to my help, but what I do know is that I am providing him with an opportunity. Sometimes all a person needs is an opportunity.
