CIBINONG, NETRALNEWS.COM - Ade Yasin, the Regent of Bogor, hopes that the ATENSI Creation Center (Social Rehabilitation Assistance) at the Ciung Wanara Disability Center in Cibinong, Bogor Regency, West Java, will make the area friendly for people with disabilities.

"Hopefully, with this inauguration, there will be more help, especially for people with disabilities in Bogor Regency," Ade Yasin said at the launching of the ATENSI Creative Center with Indonesian Minister of Social Affairs Tri Rismaharini at the Ciung Wanara Disability Center in Cibinong, Bogor Regency, on Saturday (06/12/2021).

Ade Yasin said that in line with the Ministry of Social Affairs' program, the Bogor Regency Government has created empowerment programs for people with disabilities, such as establishing Graha Pancakarsa, one of which functions to accommodate assistance from companies for people with disabilities.

"This is a one-stop service for residents with special needs in collaboration with CSR and companies to provide tools and special needs residents, and all under one roof for managing related agencies for people with special needs," he said.

In the field of education, the Bogor Regency Government held an inclusive program at every level of education. Inclusive education has been included in the Regional Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMD) of Bogor Regency for 2018-2023. Thus, at the end of 2020 there are 91 elementary and 20 junior high schools that are pilot inclusive schools.

"Our target at the end of the RPJMD to have 27 kindergarten level schools, 45 elementary schools, and 41 junior high schools. Then, we provide a program of 1,200 scholarships for presentations, including for persons with disabilities to continue their education to state universities throughout Indonesia and private universities in Bogor Regency," Ade Yasin said, as reported by Antara.

Earlier today, Minister of Social Affairs Tri Rismaharini inaugurated the ATENSI Creation Center (Social Rehabilitation Assistance) as a place to promote the creations of beneficiaries at the Ciung Wanara Disability Center in Cibinong, Bogor Regency, West Java, on Saturday.

"In the past, the center's goal was only to train or rehabilitate, now it's not. Our concept is now to also empower them. There are various ways to do so, including through music, batik making, and food craft," Tri Rismaharini, also known as Risma, told reporters after the inauguration.

The former mayor of Surabaya said that the creative center became a place for marketing the products of the beneficiaries of the Disability Center, before the beneficiaries become truly financially independent.
