A Community Development Model


Eastern Indonesia, and in particular the area of Nusa Tengarra Timur (NTT) has the highest malnutrition and infant mortality rates in all of Indonesia. Recent statistics highlight the extent of poverty, showing that residents of NTT live on one-third of the average income of Indonesians, less than USD 1 per day. Our goals focus on lifting the burden of widespread poverty, illness and illiteracy in Rote Island. Our friends at Global Development Group (GDG) have partnered with us in our community development and capacity building activities.
