Spent morning hours with some colleagues at Syiah Kuala University with the idea of setting up a Task Force at our College of Sciences as there has not been enough attention paid to the immediate needs of affected students and staff.

By noon, I was already in Phi-Beta Learning Center helping my friends complete a last cleaning cycle. We require three groups of volunteers to finally clear up the learning center so we can start using it. I asked my friends for a short briefing of our next plans.

2pm. This is the first meeting we’ve had in Phi-Beta. Everybody was exhausted but happy to finally be back at our “little sanctuary”. Phi-Beta has been an icon for educational reform in Aceh, especially in Banda Aceh, with its dedicated teachers and stuff. “A crème de la crème” of informal education.

First meeting at Phi-Beta with “tsunami left over furniture”. We discussed what we were going to do next.
