因疫情無錢上學?巴厘島的這所學院可用椰子和樹葉抵學費

新冠疫情的肆虐讓不少家庭受到嚴重衝擊。印度尼西亞巴厘島的一所學院爲了減輕貧困學生負擔,允許他們用椰子和樹葉來抵學費。椰子會被榨成椰子油,而樹葉則製成草本皁出售。

A hospitality college in Bali, Indonesia, has begun accepting coconuts as tuition payment as students face economic hardship as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

印尼巴厘島的一所酒店管理學院已經開始接受那些因新冠疫情有經濟困難的學生用椰子當學費。

When students at the Venus One Tourism Academy pay their fees with coconuts, the college will use them to harvest virgin coconut oil, UPI reported.

合衆國際社報告稱,如果維納斯一號旅遊學院的學生用椰子來付學費,學院將用其壓榨成純椰子油。

Alternatively, students can pay using leaves from moringa and gotu kola plants, which can be converted into herbal soap and sold to raise money for the academy, Food & Wine added.

《美食與美酒》雜誌還指出,學生也可以選擇用辣木和積雪草的葉子來抵學費,這種葉子可以被製成草本皁出售,爲學院籌款。

The program has been running since March, after the college received a permit to allow it to operate on this basis, according to The Bali Sun.

據《巴厘島太陽報》報道,這所學院獲准照此運營後,這一項目就一直從三月份進行到現在。

Venus One Tourism Academy’s director, Wayan Pasek Adi Putra, told local news outlet Balipuspa News: “Initially, the tuition payment scheme was paid in installments three times, with the first installment at 50%, the second 20%, and the third 30%. Because of this Covid pandemic, we have adapted a flexible policy. We produce virgin coconut oil, so students can pay their tuition by bringing coconuts.”

維納斯一號旅遊學院的院長瓦揚·帕塞克·艾迪·普特拉告訴當地媒體《巴釐普斯帕新聞》說:“起初,無法支付學費的學生可以分期付款,第一期繳納50%,第二期20%,第三期30%。因爲新冠疫情,我們採取了靈活的政策。我們生產初榨椰子油,所以學生可以帶椰子來付學費。”

He added: “We have to educate them to optimize the natural resources in their surroundings. When the pandemic is over, they will enter the world of hospitality with different skills.”

他補充道:“我們必須教育學生最大化地利用周邊的自然資源。疫情結束後,他們就可以帶着不同的技能進入酒店行業。”
