UK, local NGO roll out digital public health project for W. Java’s remote communities

first_imgThe British Embassy said in a statement on Monday that in the long term, the project would promote community-based internet access in Kasepuhan Ciptagelar areas, while also supporting digital literacy to strengthen the capacity building of the local community.Meanwhile, the Common Room aims to develop a viable model and scale up the effort to include other indigenous communities in Indonesia, which could be a major step on that road to ensure every Indonesian, no matter where they live, has access to the internet.“However, in the short term the project has been rapidly tweaked to help fight COVID-19. It means we need to get important health information out to everyone, as quickly as possible, in their local language,” the statement said.Programs agreed on by the British Embassy Jakarta and the Common Room include the production of conventional and digital media content as a vehicle for delivering credible COVID-19 information using approaches adapted to local languages and culture that can be easily understood by the local community. An e-book in Sundanese has already been produced and will be disseminated across West Java.British Ambassador to Indonesia Owen Jenkins said the UK was keen to find some way to help Indonesia face COVID-19. “We had this project starting with Common Room Network Foundation, so we quickly worked with them to tweak it so we could make sure that vital health messages – delivered through both traditional and digital media – could reach everyone,” he said. “We hope that after this is achieved, the project can focus on making sure this community gets the full benefits of the internet.”Common Room project lead Gustaff Iskandar thanked the British Embassy for its support for the project.“We believe this will grow into a fruitful collaboration and will strengthen people-to-people connections between the UK and Indonesia,” he said.Topics : The government of the United Kingdom, in partnership with local NGO Common Room Network Foundation, has launched a project that aims to provide wider internet access to remote communities in West Java.The two-year project, worth £190,000 (US$232,865), will provide internet access to the people of Kasepuhan Ciptagelar – an ethnic community group that lives in some of the most remote areas in West Java.This project is a part of the UK’s Prosperity Fund Digital Access Programme in Indonesia, which has a budget of up to £16.5 million over four years.last_img read more

Solskjaer makes Ronaldo Man Utd admission

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he would welcome the opportunity to add “best player in the world” Cristiano Ronaldo to his ranks at Manchester United. Cristiano Ronaldo has issued a message to Juventus fans The Red Devils boss has been asked to select dream signings from those he once played alongside at Old Trafford. He was set the task of making those choices from the legendary 1999 Treble-winning side that included a host of household names. Solskjaer feels that the likes of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes would add important qualities to his engine room in the present, but also concedes that Ronaldo – who joined United in 2003 and is still going strong at Juventus – would be impossible to pass up. He told ShivNadarFoundation when set the Treble poser: “That’s not fair, that’s very unfair. I can only have one? “I would probably pick, can I pick two? They didn’t even play the final (in the Champions League against Bayern Munich). Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. I think I would pick those two. “It’s unfair to Cristiano Ronaldo, who is the best player in the world of course. “I played with him so I would like to have him in my team as well but Keane and Scholes, what an unbelievable midfield.” Loading… Solskjaer is currently in the process of piecing together recruitment plans at the Theatre of Dreams, with United being heavily linked with big-money moves for Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho. Whoever the Red Devils decide to bring in, their manager is eager to ensure that there are no “rotten apples” on their books. Solskjaer added on the qualities he is looking for from those fortunate enough to be given a chance to represent one of the biggest teams on the planet: “I did feel that I was professional and did feel privileged to play for Manchester United. “I wouldn’t be able to look at myself if I didn’t know I’d given everything for my team-mates and my manager. “That’s what I also now look for in players that we sign or we bring up from the youth team. You have to have a good personality and that you are professional because one rotten apple in the basket will make the others rotten. “So for me it’s about building a team that will reflect me and my coaching staff’s personalities and views. Of course there are standards because we want to win. We are in the business to win. “But the first step to be a Man United player and person, you have to be humble enough to know you have to work hard. Never give in and always do your best, 100 percent effort is required every day and don’t think you are better than you are. read also:‘I could’ve been like Messi, Ronaldo but didn’t feel like it’ “You still have to play with that confidence at the same time.
