Shared this through:

A group of ten community leaders from Morowali-Central Sulawesi and Pomalaa-Southeast Sulawesi received livelihood skills training from SEAMEO BIOTROP on 21-26 February 2011 under the sponsorship of PT International Nickel Indonesia (PT INCO).  

The  training was generally aimed to provide options to the participants on livelihood activities that they think would benefit their respective communities which PT INCO can consider and support as part of developing  its Corporate Social Responsibility program. 

Lectures were provided to the participants on the technical and practical aspects of raising cattle, goats, sheep, poultry, catfish and mushroom using technologies appropriate at community level.  The participants also had hands-on experiences through the visits made to goat, cattle and poultry farms around Bogor, BIOTROP’s oyster mushroom production center, and the Community Empowerment Centre of Telaga Village of KIIC Karawang.

Resource persons during the training were SEAMEO BIOTROP Director Dr. Bambang Purwantara and  scientist Ir. Kasno,  Mr.  Sutrisno from the  Livestock Agency of  Bogor,  Mr. H. Irfan and Mr. H. Fakih Hanafi,    Ustadz Bunyamin from Pondok Pesantren Darul Fallah,  and Mr.  Budi from the Goat Farming Program  of Bojong Jengkol Village, Bogor. 
The participants are expected to process and share their insights from the training with other members of their respective communities, and eventually provide feedback to PT INCO  towards fully developing and implementing its CRS activities. (YK and JF))
