Ipoh Barat, Perak



Project description

The Ipoh Barat area has the potential for organic crops. The main purpose of this cultivation is to help the poor people around the Ipoh Barat area by spreading the knowledge of how to grow vegetables organically. Efforts to produce organic crops have been well received by the residents of Buntong.

This is because the crop has a high demand from in and outside the country. However, at this point, the crop from Buntong is still unable to meet market demand. With large land resources in Buntong, organic cultivation will ensure the sustainability of the environment and the agricultural sector in Buntong in the long run.

The problem of lack of job opportunities is also a big problem for the youth in Buntong. This project will train young people of Buntong who are looking for employment opportunities in the agricultural sector. This project benefits 10 youths belonging to 4 girls and 6 boys.
