Universitas Brawijaya (UB) students who are members of the KKN Collaboration Build Village group 6, carry out community service in Tambakasri Village, Tajinan District, Malang Regency.
The implementation of the Collaborative KKN takes place within 45 days with five main work programs that must be fulfilled by students, which are mapping potential and resources to empowered villages, adapting new habits to safe villages for COVID-19, strengthening food security and tourism villages towards prosperous villages, development inclusive village towards a dignified village, and strengthening of Community Economic Institutions towards an independent village.
The KKN activities begin with coordination and socialization to the Village Head, which is then continued with a discussion of the problems in Tambakasri Village.
The Head of Tambaksari Village, Teguh Wiyono revealed that the biggest problem occurs in his area is the administrative system that has not been properly organized.
“From this village, the biggest problem is in the administration. The incomplete administrative data resulted in the inadequate distribution of aid and recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic, “Teguh said.
During these activities, participants were accompanied by field guidance lecturers. After the work program was approved, they conducted a survey of the location and potential in Tambakasri Village accompanied by the hamlet head of Tambaksari Village.
The work program of mapping the population, level of education, type of work, and the number of poor families in Tambaksari Village is the first program carried out in RT 001 RW 001 starting the first week.
The results of the mapping will be summarized in the form of an infographic and mapped using the google maps application. In the future, it will be easier for each hamlet head to update the local community data.
Mapping data is also complemented by resource potentials in Tambaksari Village.
By mapping the RT001 RW001 area of Tambaksari Hamlet, Tambaksari Village, it is expected that we can find out the condition of the village community, both in terms of population, level of education, field of work, and poor families. This mapping will be continued with mapping related to the presence or absence of areas affected by Covid-19 in Tambaksari Village to facilitate economic recovery efforts after the COVID-19 pandemic.
