Title: Smile and Hope of The Little One
Objective: 1) To expose students to wau making process.
2) To promote traditional craft (wau) among students.
3) To raise funds to support Asrama Bakti students by means of a fundraising program.

Teens today are also more prone to extreme sports that are considered more challenging and require a competitive and resilient. This led to the younger generation is no longer interested and increasingly forgotten how a traditional game played.
Content: In this project, we will expose Asrama Bakti students to the process of making wau. They are required to build up their own wau skeleton, place colour paper onto the wau and finally decorate their wau. Clear instructions and methodology are given to them. 9 art instructors (which is us) will be presented in the class and guide them to finish their wau.
Learning Outcome: 1) Students should be able to produce a...
