IPB University KKN-T Students Create an Ikatan Cinta Program in Pasirgaok Village


IPB University students who conducted the Thematic Real Work Lectures (KKN-T) in Pasir Gaok Village, Rancabungur District, Bogor Regency, West Java, created an Ikatan Cinta program. This program is carried out to realize food security and address the problems of Pasirgaok Village.
 
Pasirgaok is a village where the majority of the people work as laborers, both inside and outside the village. The potential of Pasirgaok Village is quite diverse. Starting from the community, which is dominated by young people, the available agricultural land is quite abundant and fertile.
 
Behind the potential, there are various problems faced by the village, including low public awareness of waste management, underdeveloped Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (UMKM), and food security that has not been achieved.
 
Dyni Amalia Safitri, a student of KKN-T IPB University, explained that food security is an important thing to achieve. Because if food security is achieved, the basic economic needs will also be met. Therefore, he and his team initiated the Ikatan Cinta program (Implementation of Food Security through the Planting of Chili Seeds).
 
“Chili is a food crop commodity whose demand can be said to never subside, but the supply of chili tends to fluctuate depending on the season. This situation has an impact on unstable chili prices, which can burden the community's economy, " said Dyni.
 
The Ikatan Cinta program carried out by IPB University KKN-T students was inspired by the idea of a villager who was concerned about the residents' yards that had not been used optimally. On the other hand, village funds are devoted to realizing village food security.
