YDD started as a small, informal group consisting of three activist technical students who expressed an interest in the development and application of appropriate technology for rural development. Activities started in 1968 and until 1972 were still in the form of an informal organization. In 1972, that group was registered as a formal organization and became known as Yayasan Dian Desa (Dian Desa Foundation).
For many people throughout rural Indonesia, “Dian Desa” has come to mean a better quality of life. A better life means not only the improvement of living conditions, but also a sense of empowerment. YDD’s working principle is to spread the use of appropriate technology to provide sustainable solutions for development throughout Indonesia. Working as a catalyst, YDD introduces new ideas to communities which are then refined, maintained, and spread by the villagers themselves.Read More
