And our initiatives are bigger and better than before.
This year we’ve increased the number of participants, including 13 farmers, two government support officers and one service provider. They will attend hands-on training on dairy farming best practices first in Indonesia, and then in New Zealand where Fonterra shares our world-class dairying expertise.
Our scholars are also sharing what they’ve learnt with us in their local communities, which benefits the wider dairy industry in Indonesia.
In West Sumatera, Fonterra saw the opportunity to work with three scholarship alumni – all women – to launch a farmer discussion group programme for farming women.
