Sentani, Jubi – Papua Provincial Government will build five dormitory schools in five customary areas in order to increase human resources in Papua.

This was conveyed by a member of Commission V of the House of Representatives (DPR) Papua, Nathan Pahabol, in a seminar held by Lanny Jaya students, at Expo Waena Hall of Jayapura city on Saturday (October 7).

“To improve the human resources of Papua we must dare to make a major breakthrough. We have allocated the money in 2017. The Papua Provincial Government will build five schools in five customary areas,” Nathan said.

The school is said to be built in Tabi custom territory, Lapago, Saireri, Anim Ha, and Bomberai, all dormitories. The five schools to be built are high school level (SMA).

“The budget and the location are ready,” he said.

To the participants of the seminar Nathan said that during a visit to Germany recently, he met with about 200 students from Papua and West Papua who are studying there.

“English language skills are necessary. Of the approximately 200 students, sent by Papua and West Papua Provinces, about 50 people were forced to return to Papua because they failed in English. They were not equipped with sufficient English skills earlier,” he explained.

Pahabol also said the purpose of building a dormitory school is to empower people in science, improve the quality of education, and build the character of children.

“The dormitory education program refers to the 1945 Constitution article 31. It has guaranteed 20 percent of the budget. In the Special Autonomy Law it is also clear that 30 percent for the local area. One of the main concerns is the development of foreign language skills so that the case in Germany will not happen again,” he said.(tabloidjubi.com/Zely)

Jayapura, Jubi – Womsumbro, a fisherman who’s one of the recipients of the Cold Chain System (SRD), told Jubi that the household rubbish from the city residents become a problem for some fishermen as it pollutes the marine habitat.

“When we run our boats, the machine is often stuck because it hit the garbage. There are many types of marine debris such as plastic bottles, disposable diapers or sanitary napkins which also affect the quality of the fish we caught,” he said on Tuesday (07/31/2018).

Meanwhile, Jayapura Deputy Mayor H. Rustan Saru hopes the SRD program by Jayapura Municipal Government via the Fisheries Office can improve the quality of the fish.

“We should ensure that the quality of fish for the market or human consumption is good. The rubbish has not just created a problem but also reduced the quality of fish.” (*)

Nabire, Jubi – Nabire has struggled with the problem of city waste. A pile of garbage is stacked in the markets and scattered along the coastal area and the river, especially in a green path area started from Tugu Cenderawasih to in front of Nabire General Hospital.

A local community, Amoye Community who is part of Kopena (Komunitas Peduli Nabire), initiated an act of cleaning garbage every week along the path. However, it doesn’t work alone. On Tuesday afternoon (24/7/2018), Amoye Community along with Wate Tribal Council (WTA), who is one of the landowners in Nabire City, cleaned the green path.

Yohan Raiki/Wanaha, the Wate Tribal Chief of sub-village Oyehe, said Nabire City is like a house of everyone. Whoever you are, no matter which tribe you come from or what your religion is, as long as you live in Nabire, we have an obligation to the environment,” he said on Thursday (24/7/2018) after doing the activity.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Amoye Community Bentot Yatipai said the Regional Regulation on Waste Management actually has been approved and legalised by Nabire House of Representatives six months ago.

“The regulation has sent to the Legal Bureau Office of the Provincial Government for further legitimation. However, it has no answer yet. (*)
