Yayasan IDEP provided training services to IOM in Yogyakarta during June, 2007. IDEP conducted an excellent Training of Trainers program which equipped IOM staff with the necessary knowledge to work at the grassroots level in Community Based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM). The comprehensive training modules were highly engaging for the participants and enabled them to work effectively with at-risk communities.

The IDEP training team and related media provided our staff with a concrete plan for how to raise awareness and motivate villages in Simeulue to carry out disaster management. IDEP provided on-site training, catering to the specific needs of the program’s communities and assistance in creating and implementing plans for connecting the district-level government to village disaster management groups and plans. They were extremely helpful, flexible and dependable.

Yayasan IDEP’s trainings were very different from other training that I experienced. Through the IDEP training, we built our own community’s capacities, using local resources for disaster preparedness.
