The even was brought by Yayasan Warna Warni Indonesia. Where this organization focus on appreciating Indonesia's heritage and conserved them.
April is the month we recall one of our hero, R.A Kartini. She was credited as the one who started the move on Women need to be educated in Java when the Holland still controlled the country.
According to Kartini, a nation's progress must begin from how the people think, its openness and understanding. The society will widen their minds and develop if its focus through the right education. For this, women have to be educated as well.
Train on this matter is also one of the country's heritage. The rail industrial has been of the witness of Kartini's struggle throughout her mission on developing its society. There were discussion and exchanging ideas on the train between Kartini and Abendanon Mandri, Director of Teaching affairs, along with his wife. Later we know Kartini has made the concept of community development called NOTA Kartini.
While on the train to see the population density of Jakarta, this event is also to:
1. Get to know Kartini's mind
2. Familiarize with the city's cultural heritage railway as the symbol of modernism
