Myanmar has been implementing the “Potential Product (coconut) Value Chain” project under the ACEMES-ROK Fund since May 2023 until April 2024, according to the Myanmar Trade Promotion Organization. Under that fund, the “Potential Product (coconut) Value Chain” project also includes coconut handicraft courses in the Ayeyawady Region.
This course offers practical approaches to turn waste coconut shells into a marketable craft that is commercially valued. The trainees will learn the know-hows of choosing coconut shells, designing and cutting, polishing, drying, and decorating with the use of equipment step by step. A basic drawing subject will be included as well.
The trainees have to practically make coconut crafts such as lamps, DIY lamp shades, curtains, necklaces, keychains, and earrings. They will receive a completion certificate. — NN/EM
