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.

IDEP's unique approach to training not only provides a deeper understanding of the theories and principles of the topics trained, but how to actually implement the knowledge in practical ways, appropriate for the context and environment where it will be used.

The training that we received from IDEP really helped us increase our capacity to respond to disasters. The great value of this training was that it was really practical. We learned a lot about disaster preparedness and how it can be done through community participation, Now we are not so dependent on external resources.

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.

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.
