(4/27/2013)

The provincial government of Bali will assist 100 different villages with grants of Rp. 1 billion (US$100,000) via the Mandara Coordinated Village Development Program (Gerbangsadu) with funds allocated in the 2013 budget.

Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika, speaking at a program to socialize Gerbangsadu Mandara on Thursday, April 25, 2013, was quoted by Kompas.com, saying the 100 villages would be selected from every regency and municipality in Bali with poverty levels above 25%.

Pastika said: “The Gerbangsadu Mandara program began in 2012 targeting 82 villages where poverty levels were above 35%. Every village got Rp. 1 billion for developing the productive economy and Rp. 20 million for operational costs.”

The 2013 Gerbangsadu Mandara program will assist villages in Jembrana (7), Tabanan (19), Badung (8), Gianyar (10), Klungkung (8), Bangli (10), Karanasem (11), Buleleng (21) and Denpasar (6).

Pastika said he hoped the village chiefs in the selected communities would use the money wisely and be able to account for how the money was spent.

Pastika said that of the 82 villages financially assisted in 2012 yielded positive results in terms of publics welfare.

He said because of these results, plans were underway to increase the allocation to needy villages in the 2014 budget to Rp. 3 billion (US$300,000).

Meanwhile, the head of the Agency for the People’s Empowerment and Village Affairs (BPMD), I Putu Astawa, told the press that the 100 villages to receive assistance in 2013 is still a proposal from the governor and must receive approval from the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali).
