Social and Community Empowerment


The group has more than 18 years of experience in conducting various studies related to social mapping, making action plans and executing community empowerment programs, especially in areas where oil and gas companies and mines operate. In addition, the aim of the group is to help various companies in carrying out community empowerment programs and synergizing various programs with local governments, in the form of assisting companies to develop master plans for community development and empowerment and their strategic plans.

In addition to conducting a consultation process for various community empowerment programs, the group also carries out various training programs for government agencies and private companies to increase the capacity of their employees in various community empowerment processes. The various cases discussed in the training process are real and up-to-date cases of the studies conducted. The training process emphasizes on interactive learning (adult-oriented learning) and discovery learning (participants learn actively).
