YCABers, do you remember in August 2017 YCAB Foundation in collaboration with PLTU Cirebon has launched Mobil Belajar in Cirebon?
Why “Mobil Belajar”?
Based on data from Kemenkominfo (Ministry of Communication and Information Technology) in year 2015, around 80.1% of rural areas and 58.1% of urban areas have not got computer access yet. It is also noted there are only 29.8% of new households already have access to the computers in Indonesia. So there is still so much room to develop.
These conditions encourage PLTU Cirebon (Cirebon Power) and YCAB Foundation to make a joint program entitled “Technology and Innovation”. This program targeted 1,575 young people of Cirebon aged 9-12 years. Technology and Innovation includes two activities that are derived in this program called “Mobil Belajar PLTU Cirebon” and Story Telling activities related to motivation to innovate.
“Mobil Belajar” program provides basic computer training to children in Cirebon area. After inaugurated last year at the Education Agency (Dinas Pendidikan) of Cirebon District, this program has been successfully implemented by more than 1,500 childrens.
Story Telling: Motivation to Innovate
Another program is Story Telling: Motivation to Innovate, planned to be completed in November 2017. This program is also collaborate with students of University in Cirebon, IAIN Cirebon. They are invited to become the story teller of Innovation Motivation program, thus they can interact directly with the participants.
