Village Concept Project is one of the biggest programs in every Local Committee IAAS Indonesia under control of Vice Director of Project and Science IAAS Indonesia. Especially in Project Department IAAS LC IPB, Village Concept Project is divided into 2 programs. They are Ngariung and Product Development.
Ngariung was the third program of Project Department in this year. It was held as a form of youth caring to improve the lives of people in Jabal Rahmah Village. This event is aiming to help the farmers in Jabal Rahmah solved their problem in agriculture and also improve their farm to be sustainable.
Ngariung 1.0 was held semi-offline on August 23rd 2020. The event is attended by 15 farmers of our VCP in Majelis Ustad Jami’s place and other online participants. This Ngariung brought the theme “The Optimalization of Agriculture Strategy”. The theme was chosen due to the farmers of Jabal Rahmah Village’s problem in maximizing the yields from their lands.
There were two sessions of Ngariung 1.0. The first session is discussion in WhatsApp group. Mrs. Dhea from Tani Center IPB answered questions from the farmers of Jabal Rahmah Village regarding agriculture problems. The second session is seminar from Mr. Ravi, representative of Tani Centre IPB, then continued with QnA session through a video conference. The farmers of Jabal Rahmah seemed excited and had lots of questions to ask.
This activity ran well until the end and the farmers of Jabal Rahmah also happy and thankful because this seminar really help them to solve their problems. We ended this event with fun photo session with the farmers on Jabal Rahmah.
We hope Ngariung 1.0 will answer farmers’ questions at Jabal Rahmah Village and increase their sense of community in building optimal agriculture.
Thank you for those who have joined the meeting and contributed in this event. Hopefully, it can help our VCP farmers’ problems about agriculture. Please stay safe and healthy. See you on the Ngariung 2.0!
