What is the KampungCyber RAP? The RAP is an Infrastructure and Services model designed to: Give communities ownership in local ICT infrastructure. Spur economic and human resources development. Improve Government and Institutional service delivery.
Why is RAP the Right Model for Indonesia? Indonesia’s Past Experience with Regional Infrastructure Initiatives Public sector access / local government infrastructure: Track Record: Poor sustainability (Siskomdagri, PER Network, etc.) Key factors in the failure of these initiatives: Lack of Locally Available Human Resources Burdensome Long-term Costs to Key Market Segments – Government, Institutions, SME The Reluctant Private Sector Perceptions: “There is no market” “Rural SME don’t need ICT & connectivity” “We can’t find qualified staff who will live in these areas”
The PPP Solution Public sector/private sector partnerships have proven successful in other countries in providing ICT infrastructure, public access, and support services. Track Record : Good Sustainability, high impact on economic development, human resources development and governance. Keys to the PPP solution: » Private Sector reduces necessary capital expenditure and gains stable local partner. » Public Sector gains access to human resources and profit sharing to offset ongoing costs. Why is RAP the Right Model for Indonesia?

Why is a CTC Important? Question: How does an Internet Service Provider market its services when few in the community are technologically literate? Answer: Socialize the technology through a Community Technology Center. That’s why the Community Technology Center (CTC) is a central component to our wireless ISP marketing strategy.

Keys to Creating a Sustainable RAP Model Staffing One of the major factors determining whether or not a community technology center meets its potential for offering high quality computer instructional services to significant numbers of people is having adequate, well-trained, and sensitive staff! How do you identify a diverse (skills, ethnicity, gender) staff that is sensitive to the differing socio-economic backgrounds, cultures, languages, educational levels and learning styles of the people attending the CTC? What is the staff's role in fostering a welcoming environment in the CTC that is safe, professional and reflects the diversity of the surrounding community? How do you ensure that staff have the opportunity to upgrade their skills in line with the new technologies and software they will need to train others to use? How do you retain good staff?
