One of Yayasan Arraudhah economic initiatives is the agricultural project we did with Pursat community in Cambodia. This initiative had kickstarted on June 2013 where our partners from UPM had brought 30 university students and experts to expose the people in the community with recent technique and technology in agriculture.
Some of the trainings we provide is in producing compost from kitchen waste, faeces and straws. Besides that, the people also had been taught to plant vegetables such as chillies, long beans, petola and few others. This aimed to help the people to generate income besides for their own consumption. The activity was under special coverage in Buletin Utama, TV3 that has aired this program in June 2013.
Following up this agricultural project, efforts have also been made to produce mushrooms involving 50 participants from the Cambodian Muslim population. We in Yayasan Arraudhah has worked alongside an NGO in Cambodia later to train and implement mushroom cultivation projects in 10 villages in the Pursat region of Cambodia.
