Yayasan Dian Desa 

 

Yayasan Dian Desa (YDD), or in English "light of the village foundation,” is a non-governmental organization (NGO) active in community development activities in general, with a special focus on the development of appropriate technology.

When YDD was founded in 1972, its personnel totaled only four, and at that time YDD's activities were limited to clean water supply and sanitation only. Its operating locations were also limited e.g. in Yogyakarta and Central Java Province only.

Slowly Yayasan Dian Desa has grown, and at the present time employs approximately 300 people from various disciplines. The location of its activities has also expanded.

Besides operating in Indonesia, YDD is now actively working elsewhere in the Southeast Asia region.

 

Organisation's Goal and Objectives

The general goal of Yayasan Dian Desa is to assist low-income communities in improving their living standards through the utilization of appropriate technology and participatory & self-help processes.

 

The main objectives of YDD are:

-Develop, test and disseminate the appropriate technology relevant to the need of target communities in the context of improving their living standard and their self reliance.

-Improve traditional technology which is already practiced by target communities, so as to raise its effectiveness in responding to present problems.

-Empower target communities through the provision of technical assistance and supplementary support.

-Act as a go-between for target communities and the Government and/or international development organizations.

-Provide training to other NGOs or young generations interested in development in general or appropriate technology in particular.

-Provide services especially in the context of community development and appropriate technology. Among others, these services include technical assistance, study & analysis, planning, pilot action development, etc.

-Develop an interactive and cooperative network with other development stakeholders (public sector, private sector, NGO community, University community and International Development organizations) dealing with similar issues.
