PALEMBANG. There are many ways to empower underdeveloped areas. One of them is providing life skills training for its local people. Currently, RZ tried to implement this idea in an ICD area which is located in Wonosari Village, Prabumulih District, Palembang.
Friday (15/5), RZ organized handicraft training which trained local people to make various valuable objects from used newspapers. In this opportunity, they learned how to fold and twist used newspapers into newspaper sticks and weaves it into handicraft products such as flower vase, basket, and tray.
There were 16 local people from Wonosaro ICD who attended the training. Desti Fajarini, ICD Facilitator, said that this training was organized to empower underprivileged families and give them business opportunity.
“I hope that it can motivate them to be more independent economically,” Desti added. ***
