DATUK DR. JEFFREY RESPONDS TO QUESTIONS ON PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT QUESTION 1 "PO Cats and RMs have not really understood the PO concept... they seem pressured by management to get projects up and going ... All these have caused deviation of the PO concept which emphasised people and not projects ..."

or implement. Therefore, PO and POP are two different things.

DATUK DR. JEFFREY: The above observation does not show that PO Cats and RMs do not understand the PO concept, but rather Management does not. It seems to me that there is a problem of expectations here - the expectation by Management that PO Cats produce. The question is what does Management expect the facilitators and catalysts to produce? Projects? Profits? Jobs? If so, then this is the wrong expectations. Projects, incomes andjobs are produced by the POPparticipants for themselves with the help and guidance of the catalysts. The job of the PO Cats is to open upthe mental eyes of the participants to see, realise and accept their responsibilities and to provide them the tools (skills and knowledge) and keys to start their own engines so that they can proceed to move on their own. Attitudinal change is one of the most important tasks to be accomplished by the catalysts/facilitators but tt is not the only important task. Motivation (achievement motivation), the development of selfawareness and consciousness, the imparting of skills, etc. are just as important.

DATUK DR. JEFFREY: No, it is not a paradox. When we say "YS is only the catalyst, coordinator, complementing, etc.." we are refering to the role of YS in relation to the State and Federal Governments and their agencies in bringing development and servicing the needs of the people in the State. PO is our tool, ourway, our strategy, our contribution to that role.

My view isthat management also understands the PO concept but tt is being influenced by ttsold stereotype thinking by using the wrong yardstick to measure the results of PD. Perhaps, management is "afraid" of what others might say, including the BOT, unless the results are visible and quantifiable. This, to me, might be the explanation. In addition, there are prizes/awards to be won if one can produce more tangible results. Well, compe1ttionsinthis mannerdo not necessarily cause a deviation in the implementation of the PO concept. After all if PO Cats do their job well in preparing/transforming their participants into a new level of awareness,

QUESTION 4 "PO is YS, YS is PO" versus "YS is only the catalyst, coordinator; complementing and supplementing ...." is a paradox?

'" desire, commitment and discipline, the chances for the latter to do well in producing tangible results are greater than otherwise. QUESTION 2 "Government Agencies are reluctant to go into a village, where there are already PO programs .... no need for them to come in." DATUK DR. JEFFREY: On the contrary,wherethere isa POprogram the assistance and role of government agencies are all the more required because we need to work together to achieve progress. YS is only a catalyst. It helps to bridge the demand and supply of government programs and assistance. The agencies have the expertise (e.g. Agriculture). We function as a channel for them to perform their extension services. As to moving into villages, I am against community development as a priority. We should have a specific target group - the youths. (See Figure 1 on page 4). QUESTION 3 There is a confusion between "PO" and" PO program" ?

DATUK DR. JEFFREY: There is no confusion here. PO or People Oevelopment is the approach, the way or method or strategy based on its concept to cause development. In order to make this happen we must have a program to deliver 2

In addition to the above, below is an added explanation to further enhance understanding of the PO concept. It gives a macroview of PO initiatives from another angle. THE PROBLEM IN PERSPECTIVE As shown in the diagram on Figure 1 the problem that we are trying to address in people development is the problem of overdependence especially society's dependence on the government for the provision of employment (especially to the youths, graduates), for basic needs (especially the poor) and for ideas, resources and the organisation to deliver these needs (Box 1). Our concern is that if this problem is not addressed, there will be grave consequences on society (Box 2) and the individuals who are victims of dependence (BOX 3) especially the unemployed and the rural communities. In order to address this problem (Box 1), we must identify and deal with the root causes ofthe problem of dependence (Box4). These include the lack of economic stimulation in the rural areas, the under- developed capacity of the individuals and potentials to participate effectively in the mainstream of society, human obstacles such as negative and passive attitudes towards life, lack of




motivation and skills to do things for themselves and to progress; internalisation of dependence as a way of life due to the existing system and to political competitions; and because of the incompleteness or inappropriateness of our present education. After studying the weaknesses of the present system its programs and approaches which puts emphasis in giving projects, one-sided administration, imposition to change, lack of cultural sensitivity, low commitment and pride in serving, lack of follow-ups, etc., YS has come up with a new approach called People Development which focuses on the people itself. The idea is to help the individuals, particularly the victims of dependence to increase their capacity for self-reliance through their own ideas and efforts by assisting them in realising and accepting responsibilities for their problems; guiding them in overcoming these problems and giving them the knowledge and skills required to generate ideas and projects of their own. Based on the PD concept and on the above, specific programs called People Development Program (PDP) have been developed for implementation (Box 5). TARGET GROUP AND PDP OBJECTIVES In implementing the people development programmes, we must have a specific target group and specific objectives. The target groups of the PDP are mainly the youths who are unemployed or underemployed (graduates or dropouts). While our aim is to transform society so that II is able to cope effectively with modernisation and change, we must have a vehicle or agent for such change. It would be difficult to target the whole community because ofthe coverage and resources required. Thus, the youths are the appropriate vehicle or agents for such transformation. The reasons are as follows:-

develop. At the same time, they will cause unemployment congestion in the urban areas and subject themselves to all kinds of exploitations and abuses.

paper and elsewhere. But what I would like to comment on further are the following issues:-

The youths are more educated than their parents and their minds are still receptive to changes and suggestions. This will make it easier to teach, train and change them than their parents.



As the parents grow old, the youths will take over their role as parents. Thus, we are targeting the replacements whose demands are emerging. They are the future. Let us deal with them now. If we target the community of parents, our problems will not be addressed.


Targeting the youths in the community does not deprive us of the opportunity to work with the community, including children and their parents but it does give us a specific focus.

It is my observation that we are moving in the wrong direction by targeting the community as a whole. Many government agencies already exist to deal with them directly. Let us not duplicate their work or programs. Targeting kampongs and communities will not only require a lot of human and financial resources but it will take a lot longer to achieve results with a slim chance of permanent change. Our presence in the community will soon create dependence which we came to eliminate. This may be the reason for the condition in Talangkai as an example. We should have learned from our pilot projects. Come to think of it, I have never really known or received the conclusive assessment of the community-based pilot projects but I know what happened in the Tambunan youth pilot project. My observations and findings are documented in the book "People Development, The YS Experience 1990".


"People versus Project" issue and the observations that "PD Cats and RMs seem pressured by Management to get projects up and going"

Management must realise that the goal of People Development is to free people from the cycles of problems caused by over dependence by showing them what, who, why and how. It is not for us to ~ them projects. The participants of the PDP must come up with their own ideas and projects (with your help) when they are ready. They will be ready QIlOC when they have fully understood and accepted responsibility for their own life, are fully equipped to cope with their immediate and future problems and are motivated to change their destiny and improve their conditions in life. Our task is to help and guide them - to show them the way so that they can proceed on their own. Do not put the cart before the horse by thinking and worrying about projects. If you do this, your mental preoccupation will rob you of your effectiveness in implementing what is really important: the preparation. Successful implementation of the PD concept results in the transformation of the individuals into new persons with positive attitudes and outlook on life and with new zeal of life, able to make decisions, solve problems and cope with life. He or she will have the commitment and discipline to succeed or to turn a failure into a success, maintain that success and keeps on improving his/her conditions of life. A successful PD participant can cope with life and succeed wherever he/she is located. As all actions originate in the mind, success and failures are also born here. Thus, people development is a process to develop the mind.

The young people/graduates are the ones likely to be unemployed and dependent on the government or the system togive them employment. They are a vulnerable group in life's transition who have nowhere to go. Ifthey remain at home they will be dependent on their parents and become a burden. If they leave they will cause rural-urban drift

Expertise and skills from profitmotivated organisations are shared with the rural poor where the business community is invited to assist in specific areas such as marketing, financing, business management and production technology.

In December last year the Yayasan Sabah Group Manager, Socio-Economic Development, Encik Raja Indran, was one of two Malaysians given the opportunity to study programmes undertaken by the Community Integrated Rural Development [CBIRD] at Nang Rong of the Buriram Province, Thailand.

Enterprises such as BATA, SINGER, AlA and American Express are actively involved, contributing to the economic growth in Thailand's rural areas.

The eight-day study tour was sponsored by the CIDA of Canada. According to En. Raja, the purpose of the tour were mainly to study the community based people oriented programmes; to learn "first-hand" Canajian-funded successful programme to eradicate rural poverty; to study a project that fulfils human resource development components; and to provide linkages and networking opportunities to Malaysia NGOs involved in similar activity. When asked what he had learned from the trip Encik Raja said the CBIRD, Nang Rong Centre provides administration, training, support services and management for about 48 villages, through its field officers. "Staff in cooperation with the experts from relevant agencies provide training in agriculture, ·1rming, industrial skill, cooperative development and business management on an ongoing basis throughout the year as and when needed," he explained. He said the centre provides storage facilities for storage and distribution of fertilizers, seeds/ seedlings, tools and other necessities. The centre, En. Raja said, generates income to finance itself and its various activities. At the village level, he said, volunteers and CBIRD Extension staff carry out education, family planning and basic preventive health care programmes. They also implement environmental sanitation activities towards improving village hygiene. Large rain-water catchment tanks and gaint water jars are supplied or subsidized to store safe drinking water during the dry season. Low cost latrines are also constructed towards improving village health.

Commumity Integrated Rural Development [CBIRDl In Nang Rong the CBIRD is supported by CIDA of Canada through a budget contribution of about CN$2.8 million over a period of five years sinceApril 1984.

Village level activities To improve crop production, villagers are taught to raise supplementary crops, diversify farming practices, use quality seed and so forth. Animal husbandry is introduced with revolving funds provided by CBIRD to increase supplementary agricultural income from non-crop sources. Small scale collage industries are also introduced with start-up capital being provided for silk, collon, basket weaving, food processing etc. Industrial development CBIRD has assisted in establishing small, medium and large scale industries. These industries process local crops, provide dry season non-farm employment, raise level of individuals skills and most importantly stimulate private sectors' interest in local development. CBIRD identifies potential entreprenuers, contacts local industrialists, conducts feasibility studies, provides marketing and managerial training and financial support for this purpose. The TBIRD programme Through the TBIRD [Thai Business Initiative In Rural Development] programme, the urbanbased business initiatives have been successfully drawn into participating in this noble people development programme.

Initially, 40 villagers were selected based on poverty, size and accessibility for this purpose. They were supported in terms of administering the project by the government and non-government organisations' staff.

The CBIRD project was aimed at improving the quality of life of the poor villagers by increasing individual family income, improving their health and hygiene, and improving their knowledge on profession, citizenship, love of country, religion, morality, culture, heritage and traditions. The SEDD Group Managerobserved thatCBIRD has effectively assisted the rural poor in generating more income through animal husbandry, crop cultivation and cloth industry as well as improving their health and hygiene. Encik Raja believed that this programme can be duplicated taking into account the sensitivity of the local traditions, cultural beliefs, leadership structure and resources. The CBIRD is similar to Yayasan's People Development which focuses on total human development where growth and development potentials of the individual can be integratedwith the existing business and socio-cultural selling.

VS RECEIVES $$$$ FOR WOMEN DEVELOPMENT Socio-Economic Development Division Group Manager, Encik Raja Indran on behalf of the YS Deputy Director, received a cheque for RM50,OOO.OO from the Canadian High Commission as seed money for establishing the Revolving Fund for Women Development Initiative or the Tabung Insan recently. Encik Raja said that the Tabung Insan will be managed by a committee at the headquarters. In order to ensure the group has easy access and understanding of the loan facilities, the PDCats will manage these funds in small units at the centres. "The loan will be used for buying and selling fruits, vegetables, handicrafts and other village produce where the operating capital can be fully recovered within a day or a month at very little risk but with significant cumulative profit and employment benefits," he said. He added that the scheme is for women who will invest in non-agricultural ventures, raise cash income, and buy subsistance food as required by their family. Among the main objectives of the Tabung Insan are to provide facilities for women in the rural areas interested in improving their income but without capital; to promote and support the involvement of women in economic activities on a short and long term basis and to train rural women in managing financial matters and enable them to participate in small business activities. The initial fund was handed over by the Canadian Counsellor for Development from the Canadian High Commission, Encik Raynald Brassad during his visitto various PDCs - Ranau, Sungai Beruang Sandakan, Tawayare Lahad Datu and Indrasabah Tawau.

participants will be interviewed, selected, trained and organised into working group.

Currently, women are seen to be playing minor role due to lack of credit facilities. With Tabung Insan, it will enable women to exploit economic opportunities thereby creating jobs and generate income for themselves and their community.

It is hoped that through Tabung Insan, the rural women at the PDCs will be respected and empowered to improve their productivity and income earnings and consequently upgrade their living standard.

"100% of the target beneficiaries will be women The women with training and guidance will be the participants besides training, designing, managing and administering the Tabung Insan,' said En. Raja. He also said that the Regional Managers and the PDCats will train potential participants in project identification and help them to develop working papers.

PEMBANGUNANINSAN CABARAN '93 PEMBANGUNAN INSANmenjangkauusiaenam tahun sejak ianya mula diperkenalkan oleh Pengarah Yayasan Sabah, YBhg. Datuk Dr. Jeffrey G. Kitingan pada bulan September, 1987. Sejak itu, kini dan masa depan Pembangunan Insan merupakan satu strategi, budaya serta identiti Yayasan Sabah ke arah meningkatkan mutu kehidupan rakyat, bermula dari rakyat, oleh rakyat dan untuk rakyat. Tahun 1993 [setakat suku tahun pertama) telah menunjukkan tanda-tanda untuk menjadi satu masa yang cukup mencabar. Usaha Yayasan Sabah ke arah mengwujudkan masyarakat berdikari perlu digerakkan dengan lebih agresif jika kita inginkan pertumbuhan dan kemajuan sosio-ekonomi • bukan perubahan mekanikal, tetapi perubahan-perubahan mental dan moral.

Pendek kata pendekatan pembangunan secara seimbangdan menyeluruhsertabersifatmampan merupakan usaha yang perlu diserapkan kepada masyarakal selempat. Pembudayaan ke arah pertumbuhan dan kemampanan Pembangunan Insan adalah langgungjawab bersama - bukan sekadar tersurat di atas kertas pelbagai corak dan warna atau di atas bahu segelinlir JKPI, telapi pemgemblengan secara bersepadu yang disongsong oleh seliap kakilangan Yayasan Sabah dari peringkal pengurusan, kawasan dan penggerak bergandingan tangan dengan penduduk setempat. Pada akhir 1988 dan awal tahun 1989, enam buah Pusat Pembangunan Insan [PPI) lelah dilubuhkan sebagai tapak samaian menjurus kepada peningkatan mutu hidup masyarakat luar

bandar dan belia menganggur. Sekaligus, Yayasan Sabah bersamaan dengan agensi kerajaan yang relevan dan badan-badan bukan kerajaan [NGOs) melibalkan diri dalam pelaksanaan pelbagai program yang merangkumi aspek perkembangan menial, budaya kerja yang bercorak sosio-ekonomi, pendidikan [dari tahap tadika, kelas bimbingan pelajar sebaya, kelas dewasa dan kelas bahasa Inggeris). Pada akhir tahun 1989Pembangunan Insan terserlah meliputi 21 pusat dengan menempatkan Penggerak sepenuh masa unlukmembawa perubahan bermakna kepada masyarakat selempat. Pada tahun 1990-1991, Pusat Pembangunan Insan bertambah menjumlahkan kepada 34 buah pusat meliputi seluruh kawasan di Sabah.

Ini bukan sahaja melibalkan lalacara dan elika kerja yang baik, bahkan mempunyai makna yang lebih meluas, merangkumi gaya pelaksanaan dan keberkesanan usahayang boleh diukurdari sudul faedah-kosnya serta sifat kepimpinan yang patul ada pada setiap penggerak atau kakitangan sokongan. Tatacara dan etika kerja yang baik bermakna seseorang kakitangan mempunyai nilai·nilai murni seperli kerajinan, kegigihan daya ipta yang linggi, semangat bekerja, bermaruah, disiplin dan sentiasa jujur serta ikhlas.

Faktor lenaga kerja yang berkualili dan kemampananpemimpinmerupakanfaktoryang berkait rapat. Kedua-dua ini wajib ada dalam usaha kita melaksanakan sistem penghantaran agarditerimaolehmasyarakatsetempalsebagai pengisian dan penambahan ilmu. Nyala jika pendekatan tenaga kerja tidak seimbang dan kepimpinan tidak kreatif, penerimaan masyarakat setempat akan pudar dan mungkin tidak akan menghayati konsep, falsafah dan erti sebenarPembangunanInsan. Pengemblengan sumber tenaga kerja yang berlebihan di peringkat kawasan harus diteliti supaya pembahagian tugas, tanggungjawab dan masa menghasilkan kesan positif. Oi peringkat kawasan dan pusal, penggerak atau PengurusKawasanmempunyaitalianterus kepada Ibu Pejabat. Jika perlu, dapatkan sokongan dan bantuan bahgian-bahagian lain yang difikirkan wajar membanlu kegialan diperingkal pusat. Hasral ingin mengelahui secara realislik perkembangan Pembangunan Insan di peringkal pusat, dan melihat sejauhmana

bantuan Ibu Pejabat diperlukan, Timbalan Pengarah Yayasan Sabah, bersamaan dengan Setiausaha Eksekutifnya dan Pengurus Kumpulan, Bahagian Pembangunan SosioEkonomi menjelajah ke pusal-pusal di seluruh negeri.

PPI 01 Kawasan Beaufort

Bermula dari Kawasan Beaufort yang meliputi PPIBalu60, PPIKg. Suasadan PPIBambangan. Satu Jawatankuasa Penyelaras Pembangunan Insan telah ditubuhkan. Pengurus Kawasan Beauforl, Encik Jeffrey Ludis selaku Pengerusi dibantu oleh Pemudahcara, Encik Oollah @ A. Zuneidey Haji Mahmood, Encik Kamis Ag. Ali dan para penggerak di kawasan Beauforl memainkan peranan sebagai penyelaras pelbagai program yang dilaksanakan oleh JKPI di pusal-pusat berkenaan. Jawalankuasa ini juga bertanggungjawab mempaslikan kelancaran, kemampanan dan keberkesanan pelaksanaan program, disamping mengwujudkan satu kaedah pengesanan awal atau 'early warning syslem' bagi program yang dilaksanakan di keliga-tiga pusat. JKPI PPI Kg. Suasa memperlihatkan kematangan dalam usaha ke arah membina masyarakat berdikari. Rala-rata penduduk Kg. Suasa [Iebih kurang 63 keluarga]lelah berhasil menanamseluas 68 ekarjagong metro. Pasaran hasil tani ini tidak ada masalah kerana ianya diborong oleh Persatuan Peladang. Menurul Pengerusi JKKK merangkap AJKPI PPI Kg. Suasa merangkap Pengerusi Jawalankuasa Penyelaras Pertanian Oaerah Beaufort, Encik Madan Ismail purala seliap keluarga akan memperolehi jualan lebih kurang RM800.00 seekar jagong dalam tempoh tiga bulan [atau secara kasar dan menyeluruh PPI Kg. Suasa

akan berhasil merail pendapalan sejumlah RM54,400.00 dalam tempoh ituJ.


Rompontelah menunjukkan perkembangan yang menarik. Seramai enam orang belia mengikuti

kursus di Banlayan, Tuaran. Semenlara ilu, AJK Kebudayaan sedang berusaha mendokumentasikan cerita-cerita rakyat [Tangon]. Ini telah ditegaskan oleh Pengerusi JKKK, EncikJakim Kaunsingagaramalan 'Sundait dan Tangon' diabadikan dikalangan generasi muda kerana warisan turun-temurun ini kian pupus. Kelas Dewasatelah membawa perubahan kepada penduduk PPI Kg. Rompon.

Kini penduduk PPI Kg. Suasa sibok memetik jagong di kawasantanah skim. Namundemikian JKPI tidak lupa melaksanakan program yang telah direncanakan sepanjang suku tahun pertama ini. Pada 16 April, SANYA PPI Kg. Suasa akan diadili dalam Anugerah Persatuan Belia Terbaik peringkat daerah Beaufort; pada 22 April JKPI akan mengadakan majlis dialog dengan Persatuan Peladang; pada 27 April JKPI menganjur majlis ceramah peningkatan perusahan ternak [bersamaan dengan Jabatan Haiwan dan Perusahaan Ternak] dan 29 April masyarakat PPI Kg. Suasa akan mengadakan gotong-royong membina Bangunan PPI. Kelika mesyuarat JKPI salah seorang ahli menyarankan agar satu kajian ekonomi dibuat bagi mengenalpasti pertumbuhan sosioekonomi bagi kawasan PPI Kg. Suasa. Malah perlu juga pendokumentasian perkembangan Pembangunan Insan secara menyeluruh agar menjadi bahan rujukan, panduan dan pengajaran.

PPI Ol Kawasan Tambunan

Kawasan Tambunan meliputi PPI Kg. Makatip, PPI Rompon dan Projek Belia Usahawan Tambunan. PPI Kg. Makatip sedang giat melaksanakan projek penanaman getah berkelompok seluar 165 ekar di kawasan Makatip/Kusob. Mereka juga telah berhasil menyudahkan sebuah Asrama Desa yang ditaja bersama oleh Kelab Lion dan Yayasan Sabah. Pembinaannya dilaksanakan secara gotong-rotong. Seramai empat orang belia [bermula dengan 10 orang] pula sibok mengeluarkan 60 tajau tapai yang telah mendatangkan hasiljualan sebanyak lebih kurang RM500 sebulan pada tahun lalu.

Ketika ditanya eleh Setiausaha Eksekutif kepada Timbalan Pengarah, Dr. Lungkiam [semasa lawatan ke pusat pada 27Januari ] tentang sejauh mana penghayatan Kelas Dewasa, seerang wanita bersuara, "Sekarang saya sudah pandai mengira seperti 2 + 3, jadi kalau berjualan saya sudah pandai." Penduduk PPI Rempon yang berasal dari Kg. Tubau dalam daerah Ranau kini menetap di Kg. Rempen berusaha dalam menghasilan keluarar tani [seperti halia, kacang tanah, lobak merah, timun, ubi keledek, pisang emas, jageng dill dan kraftangan [sepeprti sirung] bermutu. Sebuah rumah khas untuk para penggerak Pembangunan Insan telah juga didirikan oleh penduduk PPI Kg. Rompen. Ini membuktikan kesungguhan penduduk kampung untuk bergandingan tangan membina masyarakat yang dinamik.

'Pencapaian program dan penghasilan usaha tani di PPI Kg. Suasa masihjauh daripada tahap yang boleh dibanggakan. Tetapi kami rasai ada sedikit perubahan yang telah dituruti sebagai contoh oleh kampung-kampung jiran," jelas Encik Madan. Malah kini, kaum belia, tambah beliau dengan serius, sedang berebut-rebut membuka tanah terbiar untuk diusahakan samada secara bersendirian atau berkelompok. Mereka menanam jagong metro. Ada salah seorang belia membuka sehingga seluas tujuh ekar yang akan memberi pulangan lebih kurang RM5,600.00 . 'Yang pasti pendudukkampung berusaha keras bagi kepenlingan keluarga agar lebih sihat, berpendidikan, berbudaya dan berpandangan jauh serta bariman'. kata Encik Madan Ismail yang telah menimbah ilmu dan pengalaman semasa membuat lawatan sambil belajar ke ladang pemenang Anugerah Petani Jaya 1992 di Kuantan Pahang Darul Makmur. ____________________

PPI 01 Kawasan Sandakan Perkembangan dan pembangunan PPI Sungai Beruang amat ketara dengan pimpinan seorang tokok berwibawa yang sekaligus memegang jawatan Pengerusi JKPI, Pengerusi JKKK dan Ketua Kampong. Tuan Haji Otoh Onsong sememangnya disegani oleh anak-anak buahnya. Belia PPI Kg.Sungai Berang berusaha gigih dan kini telah menghasilkan pisang emas [yang bernilai lebih kurang RM215.00 hasiljualan setakatinil dari kawasan seluas4 ekar. Penduduk kampung telah juga merait hasil tanaman buah tembikai lebih kurang RM 3,000.00. Kini penduduk kampung sedang sibok menanam jagong, pisang emas, buah tembikai dan sayuran [purata lebih kurang satu ekar sekeluarga] sebagai usaha menambahkan pendapatan keluarga. Semasa lawatan Timbalan Pengarah Yayasan Sabah ke pusat pada 6 Februari, beliau berkata bahawa PPI Sungai Beruang akan lebih berkembang lagi jika usaha penduduk kampung secara perlahan-Iahan menyulami industri kampung dengan industri eko-pelancongan. "Polensi PPISungai Beruang menarik pelancong menikmali keindahan sungai, alam semulajadi dan pemandangan kampung tradisi amat besar jika diusahakan secara teliti." jelas Tengku. "Pelancong mempunyai banyak pilihan; sama ada berkayu atau naik bol menuju ke pengkalan, berkelah di pulau berhampiran pengkalan, menikmati makanan tempalan atau mengambil pisang dari kebun dan menggorengnya sendiri". "Ini adalah satu suasana yang menarik dan diminati oleh para pelancong," kata Tengku kepada Pengerusi JKPI Tuan Haji Oloh. '3elain dari PPI Sungai Beruang, terdapat juga PPI Karamuak, di Ulu Kinabatangan yang bergiat dalam Projek Perhutanan Masyarakal dan PPI Berayong di Telupid yang rata-rata bergiatdalam penanaman buah markisa. Kawasan Sandakan juga telah maju selapak dengan perasmian Pusat Pemasaran Pembangunan Insan pada 6 Februari, 1993yang berfungsi sebagai ruang pemamasaran bagi pendudukmemasarkan hasil tani dan kraftangan mereka disamping menjadi pusat latihan bagi penduduk PPI dari seluruh negeri berlatih dalam bidang pemasaran. PPI Oi Kawasan Ranau Tinjauan pada 10 Februari Timbalan Pengarah Yayasan Sabah bersama Setiausaha Eksekutifnya bersama dengan wakil Bahagian

Pembangunan Sosio-Ekonomi ke pusat-pusat

Wakil Presiden Majlis Perbandaran Sandakan, Encik A. B. M. Fazil merasmikan Pusat Pemasaran Pembangunan

Pembangunan Insan BUKAN bertujuan unluk mengkrilik alau mencari kesalahan para penggerak alau Pengurus Kawasan dalam pelaksanaan program. Matlamat ulama tinjauan itu sebenarnya ingin membanlu dan menokoklambah sebarang kekurangan serta memberipanduan, ideadalam pelaksanaan program agar 'delivery syslem' selaras dengan kos yang dibelanjakan. "Saya ingin melihat lebih dekat perkembangan Pembangunan Insan di pusal dan bersama kita dapal mencapai matlamat Pembangunan Insan demi kepentingan rakyat selempat."jelas Tengku Adlin. Jika perlu, tegas Timbalan Pengarah, sama kita menyelesaikan masalah yang ada, seperti PPI Tibabar yang telah empat kali bertukar ahli-ahli JKP Inyasejak muladilubuhkan pada 1991. Jadi, pendekatanwajar, samadadalam benlukbudaya, ekonomi atau sosial perlu seimbang agar penduduk kampung boleh menerima keikhlasan penggerak.

Insan di Sandakan

juga bolehdialihkan kepada pendudukkampung supaya kemahiran ilu dapat dimanfaatkan. Oi PPI Kg. Malinsau, misalnya, pemandu kereta PPI telah mengajar penduduk kampung bagaimana menghasilkan batu batao Ini merupakan satu sumbangan yang amat baik. Penggerakjuga berperanan sebagaipenyelaras kepada program pembangunan yang dilaksanakan oleh agensi-agensi kerajaan atau pejabat daerah dikawasan masing-masing. Penduduk kampung akan lebih peka dengan perkembangan semasajika penggerak sentiasa berdampingan dengan mereka. PPI Kg. Mangkadait merupakan salah satu kampung akan terlibat dengan projek pembinaan eletrik hydro kerajaan dalam tempoh Rancangan Malaysia ke Enam. Menurut sumber, kerajaan bercadang memindahkan penduduk ke kawasan lain. Tetapi sebelum projek ini dilaksanakan, penduduk PPI Mangkadait terus berusaha dengan menanam kacang tanah seluas.5 ekar dan membersihkan kawasan tani seluas 2.5 ekar. Mereka juga telah membina sebuah rumah untuk penggerak.

PPllndrasabah, Tawau Seluas 50 ekar sawah padi telah diusahakan oleh enam keluarga [seramai 20 orang] yang digerak oleh Encik Ismail bin Aloi. Penanaman padi buat pertama kalinya di kawasan ini bermula pada bulan Ogos dan berhasil mendapatkan sebanyak 25 tin beras pada akhir bulan November 1992. Dari hasil ini, Encik Ismail telah menzakatkan sebanyak dua tin. "Pada mulanya saYa mendapat bibit padi dari Kalimantan dan mencubanya di kampung ini. Sungguhpun susah kerana terpaksa membuat saliran air, kami terus berusaha hingga tanaman padi ini menjadi." kata Encik Ismail. SelainKg.lndrasabah, masyarakatdi Kg. Sungai Juragan dan kawasan Umas-Umas, Balungjuga mengusahakan penanaman padi sawah. Pertumbuhan ekonomi di PPI Indrasabah semangkin menyerlah. Terdapat sebuah Koperasi yang membeli hasil ikan bilis dari penduduk kampung yang menghasilkan tangkapan ikan bilis dengan harga RM 3.00 . 4.00 sekilo. Hasil tangkapan ikan bilis dari 400 bagang [tempat menangkap ikan bilisj sebanyak 5 tan semalam selama 10 malam dalam tempoh sebulan. Koperasi ini juga menjual barang utama seperti minyak tanah, patrol, air dan garam kepada nelayan. Disampingitu, PPllndrasabah telahmengadakan Tabung Wanita yang kini mempunyai simpanan RM500.00 [dikendalikan oleh AJK Hal Ehwal Wanitaj dan bercadang membentuk Tabung Insan yang dikelolakan oleh JKPI. PPI Oi Kawasan Kota Belud Antara program yang berjalan Iancar di PPI Peturu Laut termasuklah tadika [seramai 17 orang kanak-kanak mengikuti kelas ini] dan ladang buah markisa seluas 4 ekar telah mendatangkan hasil. Ketika lawatan ke PPI

Peturu,Timbalan Pengarah mengesyorkan agar Pengurus Kawasan dan para penggerak memikirkan untuk merealisasikan potensi pelancongan bagi kawasan ini. Sebenarnya perkara ini telahpun dicambahkan oleh YAS Ketua Menteri merangkap Pengerusi Lembaga Pemegang Amanah Yayasan Sabah, Datuk Joseph Pairin Kitingan ketika merasmikan Minggu Pembangunan Insan setahun lalu. Seliau menyuarakan bahawa PPI Peturu akan dikenali dengan Pesta Lautnya yang

memungkinkan didatangi oleh para pelancong disamping potensi industri perikanan, jika masyarakat setempat bersungguh-sungguh mencanangkan usaha ini. Yang pasti sejak pelaksanaan Pembangunan Insan di 34 PPI, para peserta [kumpulan sasar] telah menunjukkan sedikit sebanyak perubahan dari segi pertumbuhan ekonomi, cara hidup dan pemikiran. Rata-rata dari mereka menyedari bahawa kemajuan dan pembangunan seimbang dalam aspek sosio-ekonomi yang meliputibidang mental, fizikal, pendidikan, kesihatan dan sebagainya terletakdi atas kesungguhan mereka sendiri untuk mencapainya. Mereka juga gigih berusaha dengan pengetahuan, pengalaman, panduan yang dirterima dan sokongan dari agensi·agensi kerajaan dalam mempelbagaikan kegiatan ekonomi, seperti penanaman konlan Uagung, kacang tanah, sayuran, buahan dan lain-lain] disamping pembuatan kraftangan serla ternakan [seperti ayam, ilek dan kamping]. Hasil tani ini dapatjuga sedikit sebanyak menambah pendapalan sampingan dan memenuhi keperluan keluarga mereka sendiri. DiPPISukoli, Telipok seorang insan yang gigih berusaha sendiri menghasilkan sayuran secara komersial. Apakah penghasilan insan ini sendiri menjadi

ukuran suatu kejayaan? Solehkah kitaberbangga dengan pencapaian seorang insan berbanding dengan seramai lebih kurang500 orang penduduk yang majoritinya terdiri dari kakitangan kerajaan dan petani? Penduduk dipusat ini menikmati kemudahan balairaya, bekalan elektrik dan air paip, serta anak-anak mereka ke sekolah berdekatan termasuk kelas tadika anjuran Pembangunan Insan. Seterusnya kita bertanya padadiri kendiri sarnaada kitabenar-benar ikhlas, jujur dan menghayati nilai serta budaya Pembangunan Insan terlebih dahulu sebelum kumpulan sasar[penduduk di PPI)dapat mewarisi konsep ini. Yang jelas usaha insan ini dijadikan wadah penampilan keberkesanan program. Sepanjang tahun 1992, Sahagian Pembangunan Sosio-Ekonomi Yayasan Sabah telah membelanjakan lebih kurang RM1.1 juta dalam memantapkanpelaksanaan program. Darijumlah ini, sebanyak lebih kurang RM800,000.00 atau ourata lebihkurang 2%atau RM2,000.00 sebulan dibelanjakan oleh 34 Pusat Pembangunan Insan bagi melaksanakan pelbagai program. Pada tahun 1993, jumlah yang sarna akan diagihkan bagimemantap dan memampankan pelaksanaan program di semua pusat. Penghayatan, kejujuran, keikhlasan, kekreatifan dan keinsafan menjadi ciri-ciri penting dan harus ada dinaluri setiap kakitangan Yayasan Sabah di semua peringkat. Jika ada yang mengambil kesempatan atau sekadar berpura-pura atau bersahaja menonjolkan diri sebagai pendokong kemajuan, maka usaha kita untuk melahirkan masyarakatdinamikdan berdikari akan terbantut. Jika ada yang berkepentingan peribadi atau tiada yang benar-benar prihatin atas kemiskinan masyarakat luar bandar, terutamanya di PusatPusat Pembaungan Insan, maka usaha kita untuk rnencapai keadilan sosial dan mengujudkan ,asyarakat yang penyayang, beriman, berkeyakinan dan berhati mulia tidak akan berhasil.

Kejayaan kita terletak atas kejayaan peserta Pembangunan Insan mencorakkan kehidupan mereka dan merintis jalan mengilustrasikan pelbagai program bagi kepentingan mereka kendiri. Perubahan minda dan sikap masyarakat setempat di pusat-pusat Pembangunan Insan ke arah insan yang lebih matang serta berusaha gigih menangani masalah kehidupan mereka kendiri juga menjadi imbuhan dari sumbangan kita. Pembudayaan Pembangunan Insanagarteradun sebati dengan cara kerja setiap kakitangan Yayasan Sabah ke arah melahirkan masyarakat luar bandar yang dinamik, berdikari dan beriman tetap menjadi cabaran 1993.
