Conclusion

Remarks of Findings

The results given in all of the report show that NCO INDOHUN activities have different impacts to different kinds of people as well as different kinds of efficiency. Related to employability, NCO INDOHUN should enhance on assisting them finding a job and improve their qualification on finding a related job with their background especially for the most vulnerable group such as younger respondent and women. Overall the training program efficiency are efficient but several programs need to improve the efficiency on theoretical transfer of knowledge and theoretical understanding. Furthermore, employed respondents are most likely to access INDOHUN email newsletter and website than the unemployed respondents. Disseminating the INDOHUN information through social circles is more efficient than individual-based social media platform.
