I hope the new year is treating you well. Our new student cohort has been busy in Ternate with their composting project over the past few months. In addition to learning about the science of composting via our partners at Khairun University, they have also received training in start-up business managing to help give their composting endeavors long-term sustainability. Over the past few months, they have worked with local businesses to collect organic waste from farms, artisans, and street vendors, and process it into compost that they have been marketing at the local Ternate and Khairun University expos. They are currently working to teach their skills to local woman and young entrepreneurs to help tackle the waste problem in Ternate one community at a time.
We are very proud of what this cohort has accomplished and look forward to what our next batch of students will innovate!
