Acceleration Week – 4Nature Project

Posted on

Acceleration Week has officially come to an end (15 – 18 January 2018). Thank you for those who stayed and helped with our projects. Below is the summary of activities conducted by 4Nature Project.
During the first day of Acceleration Week, 4Nature members brainstormed for ideas and solutions for problems in implementing SRI and NPK Fertilizer.
On Day 2, 4Nature members went to Lembah Bujang to visit Pak Su and help clear his paddy field for the next planting cycle. It was challenging for the members as it required a lot of physical labour to clear the land. Once the work was done, 4Nature members went to explore Lembah Bujang Eco-park to understand more about sustainable rural and eco-tourism development. Everyone was excited as it was the first time for Junior Executives to visit that place.
On the third day, 4Nature members approached potential target audiences in Jitra and managed to collect their contact details to invite them for a workshop on SRI and NPK Fertilizer which will be conducted next semester.
On the last day, 4Nature members visited a harumanis orchard, managed by Pn Che Aminah in Kangar, Perlis. They’ve collected data on the usage of NPK Fertilizer, harvest cycle, problems faced and future plans of our target audience. They have planned to revisit the orchard next semester to help the target audience prepare more NPK Fertilizer.

Acceleration Week – Co&Coal Project

Posted on

From 15 to 18 January 2018, Enactus UUM have successfully conducted the Acceleration Week programme to boost all projects. We would like to thank everyone who has played their role in making the Acceleration Week successful. Below are the details of activities conducted by Co&Coal Project.
On the first day, Co&Coal members brainstormed for ideas to tackle the problems commonly faced by target audiences in running the project. They have also diligently made preparations to conduct an upcoming workshop in an attempt to reach out to more target audiences.
On Day 2, Co&Coal members have approached potential target audiences in Kodiang and Kampung Asun and invited them to attend the upcoming workshop. They’ve also approached JKKK from each village to spread the news regarding the workshop. They were fortunate as members of JKKK from both villages had agreed to provide a suitable avenue for the upcoming workshops.
During the third day, six Co&Coal members made a trip to Lembah Bujang to collect 13kg of coal dust for coconut charcoal production while the other members were helpful in preparing for the upcoming workshop. They’ve contacted the potential target audiences to inform about the time and location for the workshop. After that, they bought other necessary items and tools to be used to demonstrate the coconut charcoal production during the workshop.
On the last day, Co&Coal members have successfully conducted a workshop in Kampung Asun and Kampung Bendahara in an effort to attract new target audiences. Details of Co&Coal project were well presented and the potential target audiences were given the chance to get hands-on and shape the charcoals. The workshop managed to attract up to 40 people who showed great enthusiasm in the Co&Coal Project.
