Jakarta, Jubi – Funding allocated for the 2020 National Games in Papua has reached Rp 10 trillion.
The funds are used for the construction of facilities and infrastructure needed to host the quadrennial event.
“Ten trillion is the whole package including the facilities and infrastructure. But, the detail will continuously be reviewed because it should be used properly,” said the Secretary General of PON 2020 Committee Yusuf Yambe Yabdi at the break of technology briefing towards PON 2020 in Jakarta on Thursday (23/6/2016).
According to him, despite the cost required for implementing the biggest multi-event championship in Indonesia is high, the Papua Provincial Government would cover not all the cost, because there would be some supporters. The Provincial Government, he said, only provided Rp 3 trillion, and the rest would gain supports from private sectors and Regional Budget of each participating regency as well as the Central Government.
“Clearly the plan would become a basis of how much budget is required. So the cost is approximately Rp 10 trillion. That’s for all,” said Yabdi who also the Head of Papua Sport and Youth Office.
Ahead to PON 2020, Papua must be prepared. In fact, most of the sport venues must be built, though some are in renovation. Moreover, many sport locations are also not centralized because it spreads in many areas.
In general, PON 2020 would be centralized in Jayapura, but there are four regions that would become a host, namely Biak, Wamena, Timika and Merauke. As for the sports that would be in competition are 55 branches including the exhibitions.
For succeeding PON 2020, Papua has acted promptly whether in preparing the infrastructures as well as the human resources. Especially for the infrastructure, the constructions have conducted gradually according to the budget proposal.
“There are multi-year planning but also a year planning. But clearly we used various systems. This year we targeted all infrastructure planning would be done and the construction could be started on next year. All infrastructures must be done within 2019,” he firmly said.
For the human resources, currently the government has prepared personnel in particularly to occupy 14 sectors including the secretariat, transportation, health service and accommodation. At least 140 personnel have been prepared for such posts.
Meanwhile, the General Chairman Deputy of the Central Indonesian Sport Committee Suwarno said the infrastructure planning of PON 2020 must be done within this year. This must be done to ensure the preparation is much better though still a long for execution time. He doesn’t want any problems occurred in the future.
“This year the infrastructure planning must be done to start the construction next year. It’s not only the infrastructure but Papua must also prepare their human resources, including how to prepare the event and determine the sports to be competed. Everything has to be prepared properly,” he said. (Alexander Loen/rom)
A sad story of education from Papuan outreached and border areas
Jayapura, Jubi – Education, in Papua today is still a sad story since many schools in outreached or border areas have to struggle to continue their activities even without adequate support from the government.
An educational activist Agustinus Kadepa said the education in Papua, especially in the border and outreached areas, is a complex issue, from the lack of teachers’ attendance to lack of teaching facilities that hampers the learning activities at school.
“This is complicated. Furthermore, we know that a good and qualified educational education could exist when it gains support from many aspects, namely the economy, educational facilities, public awareness of education and so on. Therefore, I think these factors have made many teachers prefer to live in town rather than in those remote areas,” said Kadepa on Thursday (24/1/2019).
Another factor is when teachers apply for the position of civil servants. It has an indirect impact on the number of teachers staying at schools, especially in remote areas. Because most of those teachers would accept the new position as a civil servant and choose to live in town rather than continue teaching in remote areas.
Meanwhile, this problem also considered by the village chief of Kampung Moso, Muara Tami Sub-district of Jayapura Municipality, Agus Watapoa. He said that all the time the primary schools of the Indonesian and PNG border have not a sufficient number of teachers. Therefore, the children are neglected and cannot study at school.
“Teachers who teach in this school village come late to school, at 10 in the morning. So this school is not well running. It’s still open but just not running very well because we only have two classes with a roof,” he said. (*)
