With the arrival of the 16 Papuan youths in this training, it is targeted that they will be able to assist in assembling, maintaining, and using these electric motors in the future. It is hoped that these youths will be competent in modifying electric motors according to the terrain in their respective areas. “So with this collaboration, we are targeting physical gifts and a sense of belonging for being involved in this training,” said Bambang.

ITS and the Ministry of Social Affairs will also hold a Public Electric Vehicle Charging Station (SPKLU) program to support this electric motor energy. So far, Bambang explained that there is a plan to procure solar panels for every SPKLU as a second fuel if electricity is not achieved in the area. Even so, Bambang added that the estimated number of SPKLUs to be built would still be studied further in the future with the Ministry of Social Affairs.
