Community Based Organizations

Community Based Organizations

The Community Based Economy Development approach focuses in first instance on group or rural Community Based Organizations (CBOs) formation. In areas with a low development level, groups are indeed considered as the appropriate mediator for the introduction of change. Intensive training and awareness raising allow the group members to analyze their situation, detect their own weaknesses and potential and define measures for improvement.

Through CBOs approach, not just trying to get a solution of socio-economic problems but also environmental issues for sustainable environment and development purposes, eg social reforestation which also provide forage production, land rehabilitation and conservation, water supply for humans, animals and plants, to prevent climate change.

Technical training courses supplement their skills. Groups are then intensively followed up; progress and constraints are regularly monitored and corrective measures identified. Other parties (government services, universities, private sector, etc.) are included in the process where relevant. DAYA PERTIWI also encourages the setting up of Cooperatives and Associations, especially to the target groups under DAYA PERTIWI’s guidance.

This service involves training in managing micro businesses/Cooperatives / Associations and consultations in preparing organization work plans and other facilities.

In cooperation with several local and foreign parties in the past, DAYA PERTIWI has expanded the CBOs in East Java, Bali, and throughout West Timor under projects financing international NGOs like NOVIB (The Netherlands), BFDW (Germany), NCOS (Belgium), European Commission and EZE (Germany).

Ongoing projects currently supported in the scheme of cooperation with ICCO (the Netherlands) and EWDE (Germany) since 2012.
