The Learning Farm is committed to improve our success and impact by constantly monitoring our alumni and their activities. Completely supported by Aviva, The Learning Farm held its National Alumni Gathering on 21-23 March 2014.
Attended by 54 alumni, this gathering was conducted to update alumni data from every cluster, to increase alumni capacity at the individual and group level, and also to establish a network of connections with other government bodies especially in Agro Forestry. This meeting was led by our Alumni Program Manager.
The agenda included a field trip to Darmaga, Bogor to visit the home industry of Ibu Indah Yuliasih, a Bogor Agricultural Institute (IPB) lecturer. They learned that being an entrepreneur doesn't need big capital. What is more important is willingness and action.
There were also capacity building on social entrepreneurship, how to take advantage of business opportunities and how to develop marketing strategy. These topics have widened their insights and made them more ready to become farmer entrepreneurs.
It was a joyful gathering with lots of fruitful knowledge gained by our alumni. Keep up the great work, and remember that The Learning Farm is always here as part of your new family!
