Muslim Aid Indonesia To Deliver Mushroom Cultivation Training
Muslim Aid Indonesia’s sub-field office will deliver training in mushroom cultivation for the people of Tete Batu village, Kecamatan Sikur, Kabupaten East Lombok. The training will start at the end of January.
“As of now, we are still preparing the tools and materials for the training itself,” said Rama Aditya, Junior Field Officer, Muslim Aid.
According to Muslim Aid Indonesia, at least 224,692 of East Lombok residents live under the poverty threshold. Therefore, Muslim Aid Indonesia believe the training will be one solution to improve the communities welfare. In addition, mushroom cultivation will also introduce people to climate change and disaster risk reduction in their own region.
The entire program is expected to last a duration of 10 months, ending in May 2015.
