Indonesia: Indonesia’s Ministry of Youth and Sports (MENPORA)

MENPORA offers several programs to Indonesian youth from across the country, including scouts, youth center projects (proyek sentra pemuda) and youth exchange programs. Through these exchange programs, Indonesian youth are expected to gain useful experience in order to broaden their knowledge and transfer those values to youth throughout Indonesia.

In partnership with Canada World Youth

CWY and MENPORA work in partnership through the Youth Leaders in Action program. The development project implemented through this partnership focuses on waste management including: household garbage and cow manure management. Activities to support this project emphasize the capacity of local youth, through education, to lead the process of household waste management. With regards to cow manure management, local youth are encouraged to take an important role, in collaboration with local cow breeders, in managing the transformation of the manure and sales of derived products.
