In implementing the work program at the sanggar, the two students not only teaching but also introducing insights into nationalism and Indonesian culture. The other forms of activities they carry out are counseling, religious education and ethics.

The two students involved in the International KKN at SB Intan Baiduri welcomed the attache visit with pleasure. They considered it a special and precious moment to meet Prof. Firdaus, who has contributed significantly to their learning and development.

Unsoed's International KKN in Malaysia not only improved the learning abilities of migrant workers' children, but also played an important role in introducing them to Indonesian national values and culture. For students, active involvement in analyzing and solving problems abroad not only benefits the communities they help, but also their own personal capacity and skill development.
