Village Revitalization Movement

The Village Revitalization Movement is a movement initiated by Trubus Bina Swadaya (TBS) because of the imbalance between real rural conditions and expected development goals. As a social entrepreneurship institution, TBS continues to initiate the formation of independent and advanced villages throughout Indonesia.

The criteria for independent and advanced villages in question are villages whose lives are smart and healthy, capable of self-reliance, able to develop their welfare, harmonious (Socially Sustainable & Gender-Sensitive), sustainable or sustainable environment.

Two main pillars are needed to meet the criteria for an independent and developed village:

1. Kelompok Swadaya Masyarakat (KSM)

KSM is a group of people who unite in the aspect of socio-economic efforts to improve the standard of living of its members and the community around them. The implementation of KSM itself is oriented towards increasing income, democratic and participatory organization, and open-mindedness. This KSM is expected to have an impact on three things, namely social, economic, and sociological (political).

  1. Badan Usaha Milik Desa (BUMDesa)

BUMDes is a village-owned business entity that is managed by the village government and in collaboration with local residents or village communities. BUMDes is a form of social entrepreneurship.

These two main pillars will create solidarity institutions, independent finance, production and marketing, appropriate technology, and the creative economy. However, of course it is not that easy to form an independent and advanced village with joint activities between KSM and BUMDes.

There is a distinct challenge called village marginalization, especially in several areas, including human resources, institutions, finance, production, supply chains, and the threat of environmental damage.

For this reason, good cooperation is needed between the implementers, namely the KSM-based Multipurpose Cooperative (KSU) and the BUMDes with the character of social entrepreneurs. Of course, with the belief that the poor can solve their own problems if they are accompanied properly. In addition, adopting inclusive development, developing mutual cooperation between stakeholders, and adhering to the principles of recognition and subsidiarity (Village Law No. 6 of 2014) by taking into account local wisdom.
