UNPAK - Having an important role in building society through Tridharma Perguruan Tinggi, has made the Faculty of Economics of the University of Pakuan (Unpak) Bogor open the widest possible space for outstanding young people.
Especially those from villages in Bogor Regency. This role was applied by developing Village-Owned Enterprises (Bumdes).
The Dean of the Faculty of Economics Unpak, Hendro Sasongko said, the number of existing Bumdes in Bogor Regency would be better if the quality was continuously improved than the quantity.
It would be better not only Bumdes but also the community. So that when it is successful it can become a role model for other villages.
"It was only at that time to discuss making a new Bumdes," he told Radar Bogor after the Accounting Research Parade 4 in the Main Hall of Building B, 4th Floor, Faculty of Economics, Bogor Unpak, Thursday (10/31/2019).
Hendro said, the main obstacle to increasing Bumdes was its human resources. Because it is closely related to the leader, the village head.
Therefore, if the commitment, ability and mindset of the Visionary Village Head can be eroded by these obstacles.
"If the mindset is still old then a budget of any size will not make the Bumdes go forward," he added.
Therefore, he continued, FE Unpak is ready to provide scholarships to village youth who are selected based on the choice of the Village Government and the Bogor Regency Government.
When graduating, the child must return to the village to build it.
"I think that for the beginning, five children will receive a scholarship based on the choice of the Regional Government, the point is they have to go back to the village, because there are many good villages and they have to be built up," he explained.
Meanwhile, Bogor Regent Ade Yasin said, the partnership carried out with FE Unpak was a desire for assistance that was expected to improve the quality of Human Resources (HR).
Especially for the development of Bumdes. Because constraints that are often experienced in addition to the conditions of a large area are also not optimal human resources. "That will be an obstacle," he told Radar Bogor
In the activity titled Integration of Social Accounting Education with the Master Plan for Social Research in Humanities and Regional Economic Development which was carried out from Wednesday (10/30) to Thursday (10/31), Ade said, currently there are 334 Bumdes formed from 416 villages.
The breakdown categories are 321 basic, 11 developing and 2 advanced. While there are 82 villages that do not yet have Bumdes. But Ade claimed to be more focused on developing existing Bumdes.
So that they can have business units, develop and advance. "It's better to improve the quality than the quantity," he said.
On the other hand, according to Ade, the task of building, especially in villages, is not only done by the government but also the community and stakeholders.
If everything is submitted to the government, it will be difficult and slow.
"We have a lot of villages, if we do it ourselves, that's a hassle too. So building it is not only the task of the government but also the task of the university, "he concluded. (gal / pkl5)Download full storyBumdes
