Education and Skills

Challenge: Farming communities and our workforce can improve their technical and vocational skills

Access to educational resources, as well as technical skills development is uneven if not wholly unavailable in many places around the world, which denies people the opportunity to improve their economic conditions. Needs can range from the basics of reading and writing to the operation of advanced machinery and application of management processes and planning. Every culture is different, as are communities.

Our Initiatives Include:
  • Service centres and extension staff networks from which farmers can seek advice, and digital channels for agronomic guidance
  • Vocational traineeships, peer education, and scholarships, including special programmes for women
  • Education and skills development opportunities for Olam employees
  • Facilitating the transfer of skills from expats to national employees
  • School materials, equipment, and infrastructure
Goals and Progress

We report on the goals and targets in the Human and Social Capital sections of our 2020 Annual Report.

Skills-building to Improve Livelihoods in Fish and Poultry Value Chains

OGA’s Animal Feed and Protein (AFP) business supplies quality feed, and day-old chicks to support local production of fish and poultry. A network of technical experts across 35 states deliver on-farm technical advisory and training services to over 5,000 fish farmers.

AFP also provides Veterinary Traineeships, through which 50 university graduates received on-the-job training from senior farm supervisors to learn best-in-class poultry farming practices on topics such as biosecurity controls and vaccination methods.
