Info about the Presentation Skills Development
The overall goal of this project is to strengthen civic and economic conditions by achieving sustainable, progressive, and competitive agricultural development.
The primary objective of the project is to improve the resources, presentation skills and mixed media ability of organization “Beskitek”, the organizational leader and partner of farming cooperative CPKV, Zhetasai. This will be done through 55 hours of IT trainings by the Peace Corps volunteer on Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Adobe Photoshop, combined with resource acquisitions of a laptop computer, LCD projector and projection screen, and a color printer. This will increase the ability to disseminate information of new business and agricultural strategies and methodologies to local civic and agricultural partners, thus improving the capacity building of those organizations.
The secondary objective of the project is creating and publishing the first copy of a bi-monthly agricultural newsletter, along with designing organizational brochures and posters. Working with partners and local farmers has exposed the limited connectivity and sharing of information between partnering farmers, processing plants, and financial and civic institutions.
Community contributions include office space for IT trainings, an auditorium for partners and civic trainings, a computer, filing cabinet, binders, folders, and paper for the newsletters, poster, and brochure, along with an IT technical assistant, agricultural trainers, travel costs, graphic designer, project coordinator, and newspaper editor.
