To be survived and make the world a better place for everybody, we need something powerful to achieve it. Education gives the people skill, experiences, and tools they need to survive. By learning language, people are available to get more access to the whole new level. With a proper language skill, people can get unlimited education. In this millennial era, people thinks how to get more money and fame, but less on education. The low number of Indonesian who likes to read is one of the big evidence about our education condition especially in rural area.

The importance of education and language skill, brought Language Commission of IFSA LC UGM holding a project called Rural Teaching and Mini Library. Rural Teaching is an activity to teach students from rural area and making a small library to encourage students reading more books.

This project took place at Desa Karangkulon, Kabupaten Magelang that was held once in two weeks from September to November 2017. Member of IFSA LC UGM were teaching the students voluntarily. We diveded the students into two groups. Group one consisted of first to third grade students and the second group consisted of fourth to sixth grade students.
