HistoryObjectivesVolunteer interventionMissionParticipants

BIOMA Foundation is a non-governmental organization based in Samarinda, East Kalimantan (Borneo Island) established in 1998 (bioma.or.id). BIOMA has a vision of "Sustainability of the functions and benefits of natural resources and environment for the sustainability of all creatures including human well-being, especially local communities". To achieve this vision, BIOMA has a mission of "to promote the community’s awareness and participation and to support policies and efforts in the protection and sustainable use of natural resources and the environment as a gift of God Almighty".

BIOMA founded by a group of young environmental activists in Samarinda (mostly graduated from the Faculty of Forestry, Mulawarman University) who concerned about the damages of the environment, especially forest resources in Kalimantan Island. Institutionally and personally, BIOMA has had adequate relevant experiences in the project implementation, community facilitation and assistance.

In the beginning of its establishment, BIOMA worked more on research in field of natural resources, but later they work with community in managing natural resources sustainably. Today BIOMA works with community in several villages in Kutai Kartanegara District and Malinau District, East Kalimantan Province.

The ongoing projects by BIOMA undertaken are:
• The Institutional Support for MuaraSiran Village Community, Kutai Kartanegara district in management of natural resources. BIOMA assists the village government and community groups on how to develop village planning within the perspective of natural resource management sustainably. This project still needs supports from various parties, such as government and non-government organisations.
• In North Kalimantan Province, BIOMA together with a project consortium implements the project of Solar Powered Renewable Energy Projects to supply electricity and Increase community’s welfare in remote areas in Malinau District.
• Starting from July 2017, BIOMA implement the mangrove reforestation program in Mahakam Delta with support from Planète Urgence. The purpose of this program is to contribute the restoration of mangrove ecosystems in Mahakam Delta as well as to increase the community awareness on environmental conservation. The program has shown a good progress, and continued in 2018.
The projects that have been completed by the organisation are generally related to the management of forest and environmental resources, among other things: Forest Carbon Conservation Project, Development of Peat land Conservation and Restoration in the Middle part of Mahakam River Region, Adoption of Conservation and Forest Management Model by Local Communities as an Alternative Economic Activities for the Local Community.
BIOMA currently has 5 full time staffs and more than 5 persons of part time staffs, depend on the needs of the organization. BIOMA has an office in Samarinda. The atmosphere of the office is quite dynamic because it becomes a place for discussions on current social issues and place for social gatherings for the NGO activists in Samarinda.
BIOMA has clear work division by organization’s structure, in which the Board of Executive is separated from the Board of Trustees. The current executive director is Mr.Aspian Noor, and his work is supported by a Vice Director, a Secretary, an Administrative and Finance Officer, a Program Officer, and a Communication Officer. Others staffs work on call basis.

The mission is to give a basic training on communication strategy for BIOMA staff in the objective to improve the program information dissemination to external audience.

BIOMA has already several communication tools for program promotion including:
- Organization website, http://bioma.or.id/
- Facebook page , ‘Yayasan BIOMA’
- Brochures, leaflets, posters, project visibility (hat, T-shirt)
- Photos, video, and other digital technology
- Organization promotion through exhibition
- Project reports, books
All those tools were developed by BIOMA staff partially based on some project requirements or staff creativity. However, the organization does not have a clear strategy to optimize the use of the available tools for an effective external communication. It is due to the limited knowledge and skills of the staffs on the effective communication strategy.
While communication strategy is a very important aspect to promote the organization program for visibility and resources mobilization, BIOMA does not have enough budgets to train the staffs. Therefore, the organization proposed the volunteer mission to learn the effective communication strategy from a source with related competencies. It is expected that after the mission, BIOMA could:
- Improve the staff’s knowledge and skills on the effective external communication strategy
- Have an effective strategy on communication
- Have effective and creative communication tools for promotion to external audiences

In order to achieve this objective, two steps are necessary to deliver 4 expected volunteer interventions.

First step is to assist the local staff in preparing the organization communication strategies:
- Training of basic theory on the effective communication strategy including the communication’s definition, objective, importance, process, techniques, and tools. This can be organized in an interactive class session with power point presentation or other relevant methodology
- After the first intervention, the volunteer has to assist the staffs to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of their current communication strategy. The methodology can be the interview, group discussion or questionnaires.
- Based on the assessment result, the volunteer is expected to assist the participant to develop the feasible and affordable communication strategy for program promotion

Second step is to assist the local staff in managing the use of each communication tools in which the volunteers shall:
- Introduce the types of communication tools which could be used to promote the organization visibility and to mobilize the potential resources. The intervention will include the objective of each tool, the requirement of an effective tool, and the expected audiences of each tool, the available media (including social media) to publish the tools, and communication tools update and publishing managements.

HistoryObjectivesVolunteer interventionMissionParticipants

AMAN Kaltim stands for Aliansi Masyarakat Adat Nusantara, East Kalimantan Province. Nusantara is another name of Indonesia. In their profile, customary community refers to indigenous community or indigenous group of people who live in particular area for generations and maintain their traditional and cultural life.

AMAN Kaltim (AMAN East Kalimantan, or shortly as AMAN) was founded in 2011 and was initiated by indigenous people rights activists in East Kalimantan (Ms. Margaretha Seting, Abriyanto Amin, and some other local figures). AMAN Kaltim is a member of the National Alliance of AMAN. The National Alliance of AMAN formally was established in 2001 after some years of discussion, meeting, and conferences among the indigenous communities throughout the country. The founder of the AMAN Kaltim was part of the preparation of National AMAN establishment. Aside from AMAN Kaltim, there are other 32 provincial level alliances from AMAN from other provinces in Indonesia as members of the National Alliance.

As an organization at the provincial level, the management of AMAN Kaltim is independent, but they always communicate and coordinate with the National / Central AMAN. National AMAN shares information of the opportunities of program implementation, but in the project development, negotiation with donor, and implementation will be the responsibility of the local or provincial level is independent.

AMAN Kaltim is located in Samarinda, the Capital City of East Kalimantan Province with the program areas cover throughout the province, and even outside the province. Currently AMAN Kaltim is only able to reach 5 out of 10 districts in East Kalimantan Province. AMAN Kaltim is currently assisting 68 indigenous community groups in 5 districts, in East Kalimantan Province. The districts include: Kutai Kartanegara, Kutai Barat, Mahakam Hulu, Passer, and Kutai Timur Districts. The cultural roots of these indigenous peoples are indigenous in East Kalimantan i.e. Dayak (with several sub-ethnic), Kutai, Paser, Tana Tidung, etc.

The main activities carried out by AMAN Kaltim refer to the central AMAN activities, which include:
1. Advocacy on Human and Political Rights
a. Encouraging the policy changes in laws, regulations, and agreements to recognize and to protect the rights of indigenous people.
b. Provide assistance to local cases of the indigenous communities of AMAN members who experience conflicts over their customary rights
c. Encourage the political participation of the indigenous people.
2. Strengthening Organizations and Institutions: Strengthen organizational management and operational capacity and capacity of AMAN members and local cadres.
3. Community Service and Support
Mapping the area of living of indigenous people; strengthening community economics, conserving local cultures, developing education, developing indigenous people forestry programs, and other areas needed by indigenous people.

In the implementation at the provincial levels, the program may vary according to local conditions, but indigenous peoples' empowerment becomes a central point of activity. Currently AMAN Kaltim is working with The Asia Foundation to implement programs of indigenous people empowerment in 7 locations/villages in two provinces (East Kalimantan and North Kalimantan Provinces). The program aims to improve the capacity of indigenous people in the assisted areas in obtaining civil rights to improve their quality of life. Activities can be grouped into 3 group of activities:
1. Local policy advocacy through identification of problems faced by the indigenous people to be consulted with local government.
2. Economic empowerment of the indigenous people groups, through local resource management activities for women and youth groups. AMAN Kaltim accompanied the women groups to make handicrafts from rattan and pandanus leaves, and accompanying youth to plan the management of ecotourism in customary forest.
3. Revitalizing local culture. Accompanying indigenous groups to preserve local culture and apply in daily life.

AMAN Kaltim as the assisting NGO has limited capacity, while the objectives to be achieved are quite large.
They lack of capacity because they come from local communities with little experience in organizational management. AMAN Kaltim Executive Staff generally have sufficient formal education but the "stigma" from the community that putting the indigenous people as marginalized groups makes them feels less confident. AMAN Kaltim is managed based on the understanding and daily experience of the executive staffs and for the time being does not have a good foundation of organizational management.
Likewise, the financial management of AMAN Kaltim basically follows the financial systems developed by the donor organization. AMAN has 2 two finance staff (one is a university graduate from the Faculty of Economy, and the other one is still studying in a university. They have enough basic knowledge on financial management, but the feel they need to improve their capacity especially to manage, to plan and control the organizations finance.

AMAN Kaltim has a big goal to empower the indigenous groups of people in East Kalimantan Province as part of the empowerment of indigenous people throughout the country. AMAN Kaltim is member of the national network, but by management, including the financial management they are independent.
AMAN Kaltim is currently implementing a community empowerment projects for the indigenous groups of people in seven villages in two provinces sponsored by the Asia Foundation. The project location is very far from the head office, so the staffs in the field need to do financial reporting (in simple way) and then submit it to the Finance Department at the Head Office in Samarinda. In addition, AMAN Kaltim has also other funding sources for the daily operations but only in a small amount.
The financial management for the project and organization is controlled by the head office in Samarinda City, and the financial reports of the activities in the project site are prepared by the field staffs. The financial reporting is done by using the system provided by donor.
For the financial reporting of the project, in general they could make it but for the overall organization's financial management, they need to learn. The things that need to be learned include organizational financial planning, cash flow management, budget control, developing organizational SOP of financial procedures.
In East Kalimantan, AMAN Kaltim institution has a special position because they have a high concern and commitment to empower indigenous groups which have been positioned as marginalized groups. Organizational capacity building is crucial to provide the ability to manage issues and execute programs in the field that are increasingly complex.
AMAN Kaltim has the potential to work with several donor agencies in the future, so that financial management will be more complex. To anticipate this, the mission on training on financial management becomes very important.

The mission should cover the main topics of assisting the AMAN staffs in understanding the organizations financial management. The content of mission is expected to cover:
Budget planning: How to plan the organization budget, how to forecast the income, to plan the expenditure and expenses, and to calculate the surplus and deficit.
Accounting and cash management: the staffs will learn on how to use basic account format and to learn on how to manage the organization cash flow, or project cash flow.
Financial controlling: the director and the finance organization manager will learn some technical skills on ratio analysis, financial forecasting, and cost and profit control, etc.
To develop/to improve the financial procedures.

The training method will be preferably interactive by using the adult education approach. The existing experience of the participants will be used to develop the training materials. Sharing experience, discussion, and other participatory method are encouraged to be used.
The training schedule will be flexible but, in general can be conducted during office hour.

Participants / Motivation

AMAN Kaltim is a local NGO with special objectives to promote the indigenous people rights to live in their own land. The organization is also run by the local staffs form indigenous group of people (all of them are from Dayak ethnic group).
They feel their capacity in running the organization need to be improved since they only run the organization based on their own understanding and empiric experience.
AMAN Kaltim realize if their position in empowering the indigenous people is important and they hope to be capable to manage a bigger program, they want to build a strong foundation of the organization. They are aware if a good financial management will brings a lot of advantages to them. When they talk to the donor organizations they could show if they have good and accountable financial systems.
The opportunity to have a volunteer from outside (Plante Urgence) on how to improve the capacity on financial management will be highly appreciated.

BoSS (Borneo Solidaritas Sosial) is a non-profit organization that participates actively in the works to promote the just and prosperous community through institutional strengthening, human resource development, capacity building, transfer of technology, and utilization of information technology. It was founded in 2013 by women activists in Balikpapan City to respond the social situation in the community that is observed being degraded in nowadays life. Initially BoSS worked with women groups in making handicraft from the inorganic waste, mostly plastic waste in Balikpapan, but later its works extended to reach the city and other province.

The organization has a mission to prepare qualified human resource with environment insight in order to create a democratic and just civil society with a strong economic structure, self-reliant, supported by sustainable living environment.

In order to achieve its mission, BoSS works in three main concerns, they are:
- The establishment of community groups that could grow up toward a sustainable civil society.
- Empowerment and capacity building of community and institutions in nation building in all fields
- Support policies that are able to involve broad and equitable public participation in the nation's development participation.

BoSS focuses the program on the education and assistance/ accompaniment on waste recycling management to the local community, particularly women group. They train the beneficiaries to separate the organic and inorganic waste then to separate the recyclable and the residual waste. For the recyclable waste, the training will be organized on how to value each type of waste and then how to transfer it into usable and saleable products, like handicraft.

BoSS do many training and activities since its establishment, among other things:
- Establishment of Smart Home to train women in making handicrafts from plastic waste and to educate children on the environment, 2013
- Capacity Building for the local NGOs from Balikpapan City and Kutai Kartanegara District, in cooperation with TOTAL INDONESIE and SKK MIGAS (State Owned Oil and Gas Company), 2014

Today BoSS implements the project of the community based project of domestic waste management system in Samurangau Village, which is located at the bank of Kandilau River in Paser District, East Kalimantan Province. The river ecosystem plays a very important role for the environment but it was polluted by unwell managed waste due to the low awareness of local people. The objective of the project is to protect the Kandilau River from domestic waste pollution. In doing so, the project educates the local community on how to manage the domestic waste and then train them to transfer waste into economic valued products. The activities include:
Establishing and accompanying 3 community based groups with 10 members per group to manage the waste recycling management.
Increasing the capacity of the groups to be able to manage their social business independently.
Constructing the gallery art center as the training place, art gallery, and interaction center for the business development.

BoSS facilitated the process of the 3 community groups establishments. The organization works as well to build the capacity of the group members on various knowledge and skills both for technique and management. As BoSS is an organization specialized on the waste recycle management, it has enough resource to provide technical capacity building on it. BoSS want to empower the group to be a collective business group of making recycled product of waste, so the groups need to be trained on business management, including financial management.

The current project of the community empowerment is in collaboration with PROTOSEA Company. Today BoSS has 4 permanent/regular staffs, and they will hire another staff if they have more activities.

The main objective of the mission is to train the committee members on financial management to enable them to plan, organize, direct, and control the financial activities to ensure the sustainable and profitable business.

BoSS is a small NGO with limited human resources capacity. Currently, 3 community groups in Samurangau Village are assisted in managing the waste domestic by transfer it into more economic value products such as handicrafts and simple household appliances, and the products are for sale. This activity becomes a start up business that is organized in groups, so they need financial management and transparent system so that group members trust each other.
The group that was accompanied by BoSS was new and they need knowledge and skills in managing group finances. Good financial management becomes an important requirement in order to make the group become a healthy group.

BoSS does not have sufficient capacity to provide group financial management training. Financial management training will improve the knowledge and skills of trainees on the fundamentals of financial management of business activities, financial records, and calculate business profits.

It is expected that the volunteers mission from Plante Urgence will be able to train the committee member on the basic skills of:
Budget planning: Each group will know how to calculate the production cost, expenses, and revenues of their business
Accounting and cash management: each group will learn how to use basic account format and how to manage the organization cash flow
Financial controlling: the community organization manager will learn some basic technical skills on ratio analysis, financial forecasting, and cost and profit control, etc.

The groups in Samurangau are newly established so then they have to learn step by step from a basic knowledge to more advance technical skills. Therefore, a series of trainings are needed to ensure that they will be able to manage their financial management independently at the end of the mission. It is estimated that 3 to 4 volunteers are needed in order to achieve this objective.

Since from its establishment BoSS has a consistent concern on waste management (especially on inorganic waste). They have already started the activity to produce recyclable products of inorganic waste as a business of the community groups as income generation.
BoSS has no sufficient knowledge on business management, including the business financial management. Therefore the mission on business related training will be helpful for BoSS and for the assisted groups.
Aside from developing capacity of the women groups, BoSS also want to capacitate their staffs so on turn can be applied to the other community groups.

? A BoSS staff will stay in the same guesthouse with volunteer, and the volunteer will go together to the training venue with companys car. The trip to the mission site will pass some dirt and bumpy road.
Most of the participants dont speak English well (BoSS staffs only speak very basic English); therefore, a translator will be hired during the mission.

Comment:

The volunteer should have educational background or professional experiences in financial management, accounting or some related topics based on the selected training mission.
Since the participants have limited experience in managing small business finance, the materials should be prepared in simple way.
Balikpapan and Paser is hot cities (temperature), so we suggest the volunteer to bring light clothes. Casual attires are acceptable during conducting the mission. In general, there are two seasons in a year rainy season (October - April) and dry season (May to September), but recently the weather cannot be predicted.

HistoryObjectivesVolunteer interventionMissionParticipants

Perkumpulan Serumpun (hereafter referred as Serumpun) was established on 27 August 2014 in Balikpapan based on Decree of Minister of Law and Human Right no. AHU-00428.60.10.2014. The creation was initiated by several women activist (Yulita Lestiawati, Agustina, Friska, Sonia, Dwi P, Aida Rahmah, and Rahmina) with the objective to bring forward the situation and condition of women discrimination in Borneo. The women in Borneo experience various difficulties to have just access on economy, health and education. The activist members from various backgrounds bring their professional experiences particularly on the environment and human right fields to construct the organization long term vision of achieving gender equality and justice in the sustainable development.

Serumpun is a non-governmental association managed by local activist who are engaged to the women and children empowerment activities. The initiative to form an association to empower women and children was taken to respond the particular problems of local women in the society as the followings:
• The local society perceive the legal measure for domestic violence is a social and cultural disgrace
• Women’s lack access to information and knowledge on the natural resource management constraints women to access and control to the natural resources management
• The unwell organized SME (small business entrepreneur-ship) and community based groups due to lack of accompaniment. Whereas the need to increase the economic income is high due to the high living cost in Balikpapan City
The association focuses their intervention on women and children empowerment, gender-responsive policy review, and advocacy. Their missions are:
• To educate and to encourage the gender roles on social, economic, and politics
• To improve the women awareness in order to achieve the equality and justice
• To build the women capacity on health, education, economic, and environment
• To encourage the women participation at public action

Since its creation, the association accompanies continuously the women and indigenous community in two areas in East Kalimantan province. By far, the organization does not implement the projects with donor’s supports. This is related to the limited skills of the association committee to design a project then to develop it into donor’s standard proposal documents.

Since its creation in 2014, the members actively accompany the women and indigenous group through:
• Continuous accompaniment of women who are the victim of domestic violence cases in Balikpapan. The association members provide legal consultation and conduct regular visit to the abused women.
• Continuous accompaniment of Paser indigenous community group (Masyarakat Adat Paser) on sustainable forest management in Muara Ande Village, Paser District. The concrete activities are assisting the community group to design projects which could support the forest sustainable management and conservation in the village.
For the time being, Serumpun accompany 3 women for domestic violence cases in Balikpapan.

In Muara Ande village, the beneficiaries are all the village population of about 300 people.
The entire budget for the activities (mostly for accompaniment, for transportation, and meetings) are paid by the member’s contribution. However, the association needs more financial supports to develop the program.

Serumpun has some partners in term of coordination, supporting to strengthen capacities and broader network such as DDPI (Provincial Council of Climate Change), Yayasan Prakarsa Borneo, also TNC – that a staff of Serumpun has got trained SIGAP from TNC.
The intervention area of Serumpun includes:
1. Balikpapan city for domestic violence accompaniment,
2. Balikpapan city for women group around coastal and marine area
3. Muara Ande Village, Paser District for forest sustainable management accompaniment

The mission is aimed to improve the capacity of the Board members of Serumpun Association on project proposal writing.

Serumpun is a small NGO/association with limited human resources capacity. Since its creation in 2014, Serumpun association manages only several self-funded activities to do the community group assistance. They never get the project funds from donor. They have attempted to send several project proposals to donors but never get positive feedbacks. The association board realizes that one of the reasons is the lack of capacity to write the project proposals which meet the donor requirement though there is an urgent need to take actions in the field to solve the existing problems of abused women and local indigenous people. The limited resources of the organizations are by the far the main constraint of the association to develop the program. This is the main problem that the association would like to solve the soonest possible.

Serumpun wishes to increase the capacity of the board in writing a proposal documents. The association realizes that it will be essential skills to be built and improved if the association wishes to sustain the organization existence.

It is expected that the volunteer mission from Planète Urgence will be able to train the board of the association on the skills of the following:
• Project concept note writing
• Narrative project proposal writing
• Project budget development

The mission objective is expected to be achieved after 2 or 3 volunteer missions
Most supports are actually available locally, but the association does not have budget to pay a professional trainers. The volunteer mission from Planète Urgence is an opportunity for Serumpun to develop the board members capacity without requiring the finance resources.

Participants / Training in the field request

None of the participants have received similar training since its establishment in 2014. The mission will be the first training on ‘proposal writing’ for them.

Participants / Motivation

The skills on proposal document development are the essential skills to be acquired by the participants in order to enable them to produce the qualified and realistic project proposals. It will be the first step to mobilize the potential and available financial resources in order to implement the program. The ability to mobilize the financial resources will sustain the association to continue the intervention for women empowerment and sustainable forest management.

Serumpun has no sufficient resources to hire available local consultant or trainer to facilitate this training, so the volunteer mission on this field is expected to fill the gap of the association’s need.

The volunteer mission will focus to train the association board members on how to produce the project reports in accordance with the objective and audience readers. The volunteers are expected as well to transfers knowledge and skills to participants on how to make an interesting and qualified report production.

The mission is to enhance the board members knowledge and skills in producing the qualified and interesting project reports.

The members of the association boards work actively and voluntarily on the ground to give supports and consultations to the abused women, and to accompany the indigenous people to protect the village forest. Indeed, those are very important works to ensure that the right of the marginalized people are assured and protected. However, the association actions are not very well informed and recognized by the stakeholders such as the local authorities, wide civil society networks, or the potential donors. A good report is needed.

The main challenge is the limited skills of the field staffs/members to produce good and interesting reports to disseminate the achievement of the association activities. Since its creation, the association has produced many field data and information including photos. However, the files are not very well organized and its quite difficult to find the good summary of all those files. Therefore, it is essential for Serumpun to increase the knowledge and skills of the staffs to transfers the useful field data and information into good report presentation which can be used to inform the activities, to promote the association programs, and to encourage the resources mobilization.

It is expected that the volunteer mission from Plante Urgence will be able to train the board of the association on the skills of the following:
Theoretical knowledge on the good reporting such as the objective and the selection of the reporting, the type of reporting, steps of developing a good writing, lay out of reporting
how to develop good reports by exercising during the training. The volunteer will assist the participant to learn on how to produce the good reports

HistoryObjectivesVolunteer interventionMissionParticipants

Yayasan BIOMA (BIOMA Foundation, simply called as BIOMA) is a non-governmental organization based in Samarinda, East Kalimantan (Borneo Island) established in 1998 (bioma.or.id). BIOMA has a vision of "Sustainability of the functions and benefits of natural resources and environment for the sustainability of all creatures including human well being, especially local communities". To achieve this vision, BIOMA has a mission of "to promote the communitys awareness and participation and to support policies and efforts in the protection and sustainable use of natural resources and the environment as a gift of God Almighty".

BIOMA was founded by a group of young environmental activists in Samarinda (mostly graduated from the Faculty of Forestry, Mulawarman University) who concerned about the damages of the environment, especially forest resources in Kalimantan Island. Institutionally and personally, BIOMA has had adequate relevant experiences in the project implementation, community facilitation and assistance.

In the beginning of its establishment, BIOMA worked more on research in field of natural resources, but later they work with community in managing natural resources sustainably. Today BIOMA works with community in several villages in Kutai Kartanegara District and Malinau District, East Kalimantan Province. One village where BIOMA intensively working is Muara Siran Village, Kutai Kartanegara District. At the moment, BIOMA works in Muara Siran with limited resources without supports from external donor. However, they continue to work here because they consider that the village needs a continuous accompaniment to be able to develop their village by managing the natural resources sustainably.

In Muara Siran Village, BIOMA with the community established a community based organization, called LPSDA (literally means Village Institution for Natural Resources Management). This organization is a new organization consisted of members with low formal education background. The organization is comprised of representative of the villagers who are in charge of helping the village government in the management of natural resources in the village.
LPSDA needs to be capacitated in organizational management and business development. Eco-tourism is chosen as the main business activities in Muara Siran Village by the consideration the village has a unique landscape, the peat land with its ecosystem, and people living rely on the richness of nature.
The eco-tourism that is planned by BIOMA and LPSDA is not mass eco-tourism, but it is developed based on the capacity of the village and the environment, which is able to provide the economic and educational values to the society, and have to protect the environment.

The mission is to assist LPSDA and BIOMA in developing business plans in the field of eco-tourism. Eco tourism is a very prospective business for Muara Siran village, because this village has a unique environment. Places of interest offered includes peat land ecosystem, tidal lake, river ecosystems, wildlife, stilt houses over the river, daily life of the people, living as the local people, etc. In order to make the eco-tourism activities not to be catastrophic for the ecosystem and the community, it needs to be planned properly and wisely.
The community organization (LPSDA) does not yet have a detailed plan on how to manage ecotourism. This organization lacks sufficient knowledge about how to plan economic or business activities. Meanwhile, BIOMA as the assisting NGO also does not have the resources to do the capacity building. BIOMA believes if ecotourism is developed wisely in this village, it could be a source of income for the people and on the other hand the environment will be better preserved.
Support from various parties such as government, NGOs, volunteers to develop the concept and business of ecotourism is highly appreciated. Volunteer from Plante Urgence with the background on how to develop business plan with simple methods will greatly help LPSDA to run the organization in the future. With a good business plan, LPSDA will become easier in establishing cooperation with other parties.

The mission should cover the technical assistance on business plan of eco-tourism of the village. This include:
? Sharing overview about eco-tourism
? Participatory mapping of the potencies of eco-tourism
? Assisting the community organization (LPSDA) in Making business plan on eco-tourism development
? Assisting LPSDA in making Work plan/Action Plan.
? Other relevant subjects
BIOMA staffs will join the training, and after the training they will do follow up the training results together with LPSDA to develop the business plan in more detail.

Participants / Name: To be named

Participants / Number: 12

Participants / Education level, Diplomas

12 persons (10 from the Management of LPSDA and 2 BIOMA Staffs)
Participants from the LPSDA are villagers, mostly farmers with low educational background, with the age between 20 - 40 years old. Due to this background, the material of the training should be simple.
Two staffs of BIOMA will be assigned to join the training as well as to help the volunteer in organizing the training.

Participants / Training in the field request

The training will be addressed to the Board Members of LPSDA. In general their level of knowledge on the topic of developing business plan is very low. Most of them have never attended training on that topic, even for the other topic.
They also have lack of experience in managing business. The training should be delivered in a simple way.
Therefore, there will be 2 staffs of BIOMA will join the training. BIOMA staffs are graduated from university, and their role during the training is as the participants as well as helping the participants of LPSDA in the process of learning. By the end of the training BIOM Staffs will help LPSDA to follow up to detail the business plan.

Participants / Motivation

BIOMA as the assisting NGO to LPSDA (and Muara Siran Village) wants to develop Muara Siran village as a model of community based eco-tourism, especially for the peat land ecosystem.
Considering the local people are simple people with low background in formal education, the plan should be done wisely in order to minimize the negative impact to the environment.

BoSS is a non-profit organization that participates actively in the works to promote the just and prosperous community through institutional strengthening, human resource development, capacity building, transfer of technology, and utilization of information technology. It was founded in 2013 by women activists in Balikpapan City to respond the social situation in the community that is observed being degraded in nowadays life. Initially BoSS worked with women groups in making handicraftfrom the inorganic waste, mostly plastic waste in Balikpapan, but later its works extended to reach the city and other province.

The organization has a mission to prepare qualified human resource with environment insight in order to create a democratic and just civil society with a strong economic structure, self-reliant, supported by sustainable living environment.

In order to achieve its mission, BoSS works in three main concerns, they are:
- The establishment of community groups that could grow up toward a sustainable civil society.
- Empowerment and capacity building of community and institutions in nation building in all fields
- Support policies that are able to involve broad and equitable public participation in the nation's development participation.

BoSS focuses the program on the education and assistance/ accompaniment on waste recycling management to the local community, particularly women group. They train the beneficiaries to separate the organic and inorganic waste then to separate the recyclable and the residual waste. For the recyclable waste, the training will be organized on how to value each type of waste and then how to transfer it into usable and saleable products, like handicraft.

BoSS do many training and activities since its establishment, among other things:
- Establishment of Smart Home to train women in making handicrafts from plastic waste and to educate children on the environment, 2013
- Capacity Building for the local NGOs from Balikpapan City and Kutai Kartanegara District, in cooperation with TOTAL INDONESIE and SKK MIGAS (State Owned Oil and Gas Company), 2014

Today BoSS implements the project of the community based project of domestic waste management system in Samurangau Village, which is located at the bank of Kandilau River in Paser District, East Kalimantan Province. The river ecosystem plays a very important role for the environment but it was polluted by unwell managed waste due to the low awareness of local people. The objective of the project is to protect the Kandilau River from domestic waste pollution. In doing so, the project educates the local community on how to manage the domestic waste and then train them to transfer waste into economic valued products. The activities include:
Establishing and accompanying 3 community based groups with 10 members per group to manage the waste recycling management.
Increasing the capacity of the groups to be able to manage their social business independently.
Constructing the gallery art center as the training place, art gallery, and interaction center for the business development.

BoSS facilitated the process of the 3 community (women) groups establishments. The organization works as well to build the capacity of the group members on various knowledge and skills both for technique and management. As BoSS is an organization specialized on the waste recycle management, it has enough resource to provide technical capacity building on it. BoSS wants to empower the group to become a collective business group of making recycled product of waste, so the groups need to be trained on business management. Knowledge and skill on marketing will become one of the most important things to be learnt.

The current project of the community empowerment is in collaboration with PROTOSEA Company. Today BoSS has 4 permanent/regular staffs, and they will hire another staff if they have more activities.

To train the committee members on marketing strategy so that they can define the strategy to increase the sales of their products in order to increase the profit.

BoSS is a small NGO with limited human resources capacity. Currently, 3 community based business groups in Samurangau Village are assisted in doing domestic waste management, including reusing and recycling inorganic waste into useful items, such as handicrafts, and the products are for sale. This activity becomes a start up business that is organized in form of groups (collective business), so they need to understand the principle of business management.

Marketing, for a start-up business is very important to introduce and promote the products. A specific products may only be accepted by specific market, so the producers need to be aware who are the targeted market and how is the strategy in marketing. Since they are new groups with specific product and the sale is not much yet, BoSS wants to identify the specific target of market and how to develop marketing strategy.

BoSS does not have sufficient capacity to assist the group in strategizing the marketing scheme for their business. BoSS and the groups need to learn more deeper on marketing strategy for running their business.

It is expected that the volunteer mission from Plante Urgence will be able to train the participants on the basic skills of:
Market assessment for their unique product (assessing niche of market)
Definition of the market scope and entry strategies for their business
Definition of product and pricing strategies
Effective promotion and distribution strategies

The groups in Samurangau are newly established so then they have to learn step by step from a basic knowledge to more advance technical skills. Therefore, a series of trainings are needed to ensure that they will be able to manage their business independently and market their product at the end of the mission. It is estimated that 3 to 4 volunteers are needed in order to achieve this objective.

Participants / Name: Name of the participants will be given before the mission

Participants / Number: 10

Participants / Education level, Diplomas

Participants of the mission:
? They are the committee members who are responsible for marketing of the 3 community based groups.
? BoSS staff (2 persons)
? Most of them are graduated from high school, some of them hold diploma degree
? Age between 25-40 y.o.
? None of them (the participants from the village) speaks English. BoSSstaffs understand only basic English. Translator will be needed during the mission.

Participants / Training in the field request

None of the participants have received similar training. The mission will be the first training on marketing strategy for them. The training that has been received by the participants was related to community group organization.

Participants / Motivation

Since its establishment BoSS has a consistent concern on waste management (especially on inorganic waste). They have already started the activity to produce recyclable products of inorganic waste as a business of the community groups as income generation.

BoSS has no sufficient knowledge on business management, including the marketing strategy.

Therefore the mission on business related training will be helpful for BoSS and for the assisted groups.
Aside from developing capacity of the women groups, BoSS also want to capacitate their staffs so on turn can be applied to the other community groups.

? During the day off, the volunteer can take advantage by visiting some tourist attractions nearby. BoSS staffs and the local people can help the volunteer to organize his/her trip.
? A BoSS staff will stay in the same guesthouse with volunteer, and the volunteer will go together to the training venue with companys car.
? Most of the participants dont speak English well, and the BoSS staffs only speak very basic English; therefore, a translator will be hired during the mission.

Comment:

The volunteer should have educational background or professional experiences in marketing or some related topics based on the selected training mission. Since the participants have limited experience in managing small business, the materials should be prepared in simple way.
Balikpapan and Paser is hot cities (temperature), so we suggest the volunteer to bring light clothes. Casual attires are acceptable during conducting the mission. In general, there are two seasons in a year rainy season (October - April) and dry season (May to September), but recently the weather cannot be predicted.

HistoryObjectivesVolunteer interventionMissionParticipants

Yayasan BIOMA (BIOMA Foundation, simply called as BIOMA) is a non-governmental organization based in Samarinda, East Kalimantan (Borneo Island) established in 1998 (bioma.or.id). BIOMA has a vision of "Sustainability of the functions and benefits of natural resources and environment for the sustainability of all creatures including human well being, especially local communities". To achieve this vision, BIOMA has a mission of "to promote the communitys awareness and participation and to support policies and efforts in the protection and sustainable use of natural resources and the environment as a gift of God Almighty".

BIOMA was founded by a group of young environmental activists in Samarinda (mostly graduated from the Faculty of Forestry, Mulawarman University) who concerned about the damages of the environment, especially forest resources in Kalimantan Island. Institutionally and personally, BIOMA has had adequate relevant experiences in the project implementation, community facilitation and assistance.

In the beginning of its establishment, BIOMA worked more on research in field of natural resources, but later they work with community in managing natural resources sustainably. Today BIOMA works with community in several villages in Kutai Kartanegara District and Malinau District, East Kalimantan Province. One village where BIOMA intensively working is Muara Siran Village, Kutai Kartanegara District. At the moment, BIOMA works in Muara Siran with limited resources without supports from external donor. However, they continue to work here because they consider that the village needs a continuous accompaniment to be able to develop their village by managing the natural resources sustainably.

In Muara Siran Village, BIOMA with the community established a community based organization, called LPSDA (literally means Village Institution for Natural Resources Management). This new organization is consisted of members with low formal education background. The organization is comprised of representative of the villagers who are in charge of helping the village government in the management of natural resources in the village. As a new institution, LPSDA needs to learn about basic management such as basic administration, how to make organizational charts, job descriptions, and other relevant knowledge.

The mission is aimed to improve the capacity of the Management Board members of LPSDA in managing their new organization. The position of LPSDA in village development is quite strategic, but their capacity is now very low. They need support from other parties (NGO, expert, volunteer, government, etc) to enable them to manage the organization properly.
Based on the education background, most of them are graduated from Junior High school and Senior High school. Furthermore, considering they live in a quite remote village, they are also lack of experience. Capacity building activity is truly relevant for their situation.
BIOMA as the assisting NGO has several plans to capacitate the organization (LPSDA) but at the moment they dont have enough resources to do the activities. The volunteer mission from Plante Urgence in organisational management is welcome and will suit with the long-term plan of BIOMA in developing the village of Muara Siran.
After the mission completed, it is expected that the Board members of LPSDA Muara Siran will have basic knowledge and skill in managing the operation of the organization, particularly organization administration, making work plan, and developing job description.

The mission should cover the main topics of management of organization:
? Basic administration of the organization
? Developing Organizational Chart (organization structure)
? Developing organization plan (Work plan)
? Developing job description of staff
By the end of the mission, the organization will be able to use the tools and the procedures learned during the training to improve their organization by themselves. BIOMA as the assisting NGO will assist them to do this work.

Participants / Name: To be named

Participants / Number: 12

Participants / Education level, Diplomas

12 persons (10 from the Management of LPSDA and 2 BIOMA Staffs)
Participants from the LPSDA are villagers, mostly farmers with low educational background, with the age between 20 - 40 years old. Due to this background, the material of the training should be simple.
Two staffs of BIOMA will be assigned to join the training as well as to help the volunteer in organizing the training.

Participants / Training in the field request

The training will be addressed to the Board Members of LPSDA. In general their level of knowledge on the topic of organizational management is very low. Most of them have never attended training on that topic, even for the other topic.
They also have lack of experience in ruling an organization. The training should be delivered in a simple way.
Therefore, there will be 2 staffs of BIOMA will join the training. BIOMA staffs are graduated from university, and their role during the training is as the participants as well as helping the participants of LPSDA in the process of learning.

Participants / Motivation

BIOMA as the assisting NGO to LPSDA (and Muara Siran Village) want to develop Muara Siran village as a self-sufficient village that could plan and manage the village resources sustainably in order to improve the quality of life of the people.
Strengthening LPSDA will eventually strengthen the village in achieving their objective.

In the beginning of its establishment, BIOMA worked more on research in field of natural resources, but later they work with community in managing natural resources sustainably. Today BIOMA works with community in several villages in Kutai Kartanegara District and Malinau District, East Kalimantan Province.

The ongoing projects by BIOMA undertaken are:
• The Institutional Support for MuaraSiran Village Community, KutaiKartanegara district in management of natural resources. BIOMA assists the village government and community groups on how to develop village planning within the perspective of natural resource management sustainably. This project still needs supports from various parties, such as government and non-government organisations.
• In North Kalimantan Province, BIOMA together with a project consortium implements the project of Solar Powered Renewable Energy Projects to supply electricity and Increase community’s welfare in remote areas in Malinau District.
• Starting from July 2017, BIOMA implement the mangrove reforestation program in Mahakam Delta with support from PlanèteUrgence. The purpose of this program is to contribute the restoration of mangrove ecosystems in Mahakam Delta as well as to increase the community awareness on environmental conservation. The program has shown a good progress, and continuedin 2018.

The projects that have been completed by the organisation are generally related to the management of forest and environmental resources, among other things: Forest Carbon Conservation Project, Development of Peat land Conservation and Restoration in the Middle part of Mahakam River Region, Adoption of Conservation and Forest Management Model by Local Communities as an Alternative Economic Activities for the Local Community.
BIOMA currently has 5 full time staffs and more than 5 persons of part time staffs, depend on the needs of the organization. BIOMA has an office in Samarinda. The atmosphere of the office is quite dynamic because it becomes a place for discussions on current social issues and place for social gatherings for the NGO activists in Samarinda.

BIOMA has clear work division by organization’s structure, in which the Board of Executive is separated from the Board of Trustees. The current executive director is Mr.Aspian Noor, and his work is supported by a Vice Director, a Secretary, an Administrative and Finance Officer, and a Program Officer. Others staffs work on call basis.

The mission has two main objectives which are:
• To train BIOMA management staffs on Human Resources management system
• To assist the organization to establish the HR management strategy and to create HR tools

BIOMA is technically very qualified in implementing the program on the environment and development in East Kalimantan province because most of the staffs are graduated from Forestry or Environment programs. On the other hand, the organization realised that the technical program capacity shall be well supported by HR management skills to manage the program implementation more efficiently. Currently, none of their staffs have a professional background on HR. The organization manages the HR system simply and the procedures are incomplete. They do not recruit a specific HR staff because their budget is limited.
Therefore, the mission on HR would be very helpful for them to improve their current system. The volunteer missions on HR will help BIOMA to develop the organization by strengthening the system of the HR management.

The mission is expected to increase the capacity of BIOMA staffs and to assist BIOMA to establish their HR strategy.
In order to achieve these objectives, the mission will be organized in the following steps:
1. Training on Human resources management theory to increase the knowledge of BIOMA staffs in managing HR.
2. Assisting BIOMA staff to conduct audit for the current Human Resources management. The volunteers shall assist BIOMA staff to conduct a self audit by reviewing the current HR system then identifying the gap for efficient management

The current executive director is Mr. Aspian Noor, and his work is supported by a Vice Director, a Secretary, an Administrative and Finance Officer, a Program Officer, and a Communication Officer. Others staffs work on call basis.

To train the BIOMA project staffs to create a good and interesting video of their environment and development activities in their project areas.

BIOMA staffs are motivated to document their activities programs by taking photos and video during the implementation of their program activities. In the meantime, they use several DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) and pocket cameras to take the photos and videos. One of the existing challenges is that the organization does not have an assigned staff to produce a good video documentation though they have countless video files from the field. However, they did not have enough budgets to hire a communication staff for their project. Consequently, they were not able to produce a good video though they have implemented their projects for years.

The other challenge is the limited skill of field staff to take a qualified video to be used to capture the important moment.

It is expected that after the volunteer missions, BIOMA project staffs will have sufficient skills to:
- Document the necessary recording of the field activities in a qualified video file to capture the correct moment to reflect the project achievements.
- edit the taken video file into a more interesting video as the communication tools to increase the project and organization visibility

BIOMA wishes to present the video to their various audiences (donors, partners, governments, beneficiaries, etc) and to publish the video in their networks through websites, social media, etc.

Two steps will be necessary to achieve the expected objectives. It does not necessarily require one mission per intervention but it can be.

First step is to train the technical skills to the project staffs to document the project activities in qualified video requirements (angle, voice recording, picture focus, stability, etc). A field mission to the project area might be necessary to take a demo of video shooting.

Second step will have to take place after first step to train the project staff to edit all the videos based on their existing video and the demo video taken during the first step. By using all the taken videos, the volunteers are expected to:
- reassess the relevant and the qualities of the taken videos or existing videos to the video creation objectives
- train the participants to edit the video by introducing specific video editing software
- train BIOMA staffs to upload the video into social media, website, youtube, etc

HistoryObjectivesVolunteer interventionMissionParticipants

Yayasan BIOMA (BIOMA Foundation, simply called as BIOMA) is a non-governmental organization based in Samarinda, East Kalimantan (Borneo Island) established in 1998 (bioma.or.id). BIOMA has a vision of "Sustainability of the functions and benefits of natural resources and environment for the sustainability of all creatures including human well being, especially local communities". To achieve this vision, BIOMA has a mission of "to promote the communitys awareness and participation and to support policies and efforts in the protection and sustainable use of natural resources and the environment as a gift of God Almighty".

BIOMA was founded by a group of young environmental activists in Samarinda (mostly graduated from the Faculty of Forestry, Mulawarman University) who concerned about the damages of the environment, especially forest resources in Kalimantan Island. Institutionally and personally, BIOMA has had adequate relevant experiences in the project implementation, community facilitation and assistance.

In the beginning of its establishment, BIOMA worked more on research in field of natural resources, but later they work with community in managing natural resources sustainably. Today BIOMA works with community in several villages in Kutai Kartanegara District and Malinau District, East Kalimantan Province.

The ongoing project by BIOMA undertaken is The Institutional Support for Muara Siran Village Community, Kartanegara District in management of natural resources. BIOMA assists the village government and community groups in how to develop village planning within the perspective of natural resource management wisely. This project still needs supports from various parties, such as government and non government organisations. In North Kalimantan Province, BIOMA together with a project consortium implements the project of Solar Powered Renewable Energy Projects to supply electricity and Increase communitys welfare in remote areas in Malinau District.
The projects that have been completed by the organisation are generally related to the management of forest and environmental resources, among other things: Forest Carbon Conservation Project, Development of Peat land Conservation and Restoration in the Middle part of Mahakam River Region, Adoption of Conservation and Forest Management Model by Local Communities as an Alternative Economic Activities for the Local Community.
BIOMA currently has 5 full time staffs and more than 5 persons of part time staffs, depend on the needs of the organization. BIOMA has an office in Samarinda. The atmosphere of the office is quite dynamic because it becomes a place for discussions on current social issues and place for social gatherings for the NGO activists in Samarinda.
BIOMA has clear work division by organizations structure, in which the Board of Executive is separated from the Board of Trustees. The current executive director is Mr. Aspian Noor, and in his work he is supported by a Vice Director, a Secretary, an Administrative and Finance Officer, a Program Officer, and a Communication Officer. Others staffs work on call basis.
BIOMA already has a website (bioma.or.id) but only in Indonesian language. There are staffs who regularly update the content of the website but BIOMA feels that the existing website needs to be better managed in order to provide greater benefits to the organization.

BIOMA already has a website and have gotten benefits from it for organizational promotion, program advocacy, and other communication activities. Website is now generally become the most effective and powerful tool for communication. The existing website is managed and updated regularly, but all contents are still in Bahasa Indonesia. The web presentation remains the same from time to time, and they feel their web is not attractive and need to be improved.
BIOMA has 2 staffs assigned specifically to maintain and to update the content of the web regularly, but it is done in simple way because of the limitation on technical skills. In the process of updating, there is no prior verification or check from the Management so that sometimes there are mistakes, incomplete contents, etc.
Websites and the internet are the most effective and powerful communication tools for reaching broader audiences. BIOMA realizes if they have to reach the target of the international community, because the issues that are working cannot be separated from international environmental issues.
Today, the organization needs to improve the lay out and content of the website and use the internet tool to manage the website properly. The staffs assigned by BIOMA currently have limited technical skills on internet, so the mission on website management/development is highly relevant and suits to the needs of the organization.
In addition, BIOMA wants to have a website in English so that the volunteer missions are expected to help the organizations in creating pages in English.

The mission should cover the improvement of knowledge and technical skill on website management of BIOMA staffs, which is in turn, will improve the organizations web performance. The mission is expected to include:
? Introduction to website and communication strategy
? Website development and maintenance
? Improving design and lay out
? Improvement of web presentation.
? Other relevant technical skills (how to use SEO - search engine optimizer, how to increase web visitor, make link with other relevant website, monitoring number of visitors)
? Interactive page with audience
? Integration of website with social media
The method of the mission will be preferably interactive and promoting hands-on experience. The training schedule will be flexible but, but in general can be conducted during office hour.
