    Who We Are

    IDRAP (Institution for Development of Rural and Indigenous People) is an non-profit and non-governmental organization working for materialization of rights to development of rural and indigenous people in South East Sulawesi Province of East Indonesia. This is important to maintain people living in a harmony and peaceful world as well as to keep them out of social conflict. It remains a fact that rural and indigenous people are in abundance of natural resources but living below poverty line. IDRAP was initially founded as an informal caucus in 1999 by a group of people from North Kulisusu. The idea of its establishment was inspired by their collective worries and concerns on the poverty situation of indigenous communities in North Buton Island though they are in abundance of natural resources. After having been active as a voluntary caucus for five years, a substantial change was made on October 24, 2003, when IDRAP was formally declared and legally registered as a not-for-profit organization and non-governmental organization.

    The overall goal of IDRAP is to contribute directly and indirectly to the development of rural and indigenous communities in South East Sulawesi in a self-help and sustainable way. Strengthening the capacity of indigenous people, improving their health status, generating their income as well as heightening their participation in preserving living environment are its basic objectives.

    The general situation of the 22 indigenous ethnics in South East Sulawesi is rather same, mostly poor. This condition not only brings them into inability to access education and health facilities but also has trapped them to be in illegal logging and illegal fishing activities.



    Keeping indigenous people in rural areas of Southeast Sulawesi to live in a harmony and peaceful world and avoiding them from potency of conflict with other people by having an equal access to participate in and enjoy development.


    The following are the mission of IDRAP as stated in its Constitution:
    • building the capacity of rural and indigenous people;
    • improving the health status of rural and indigenous people;
    • improving the economic condition of rural and indigenous people; and
    • preserving living environment based on indigenous practices and wisdom.


    In carrying out its work, IDRAP holds the following values:
    • We work on the basis of empowerment of people in order to bring them out of dependence.
    • We are committed to improving the lives of the indigenous communities in rural area, but it does not mean excluding non-indigenous people of such communities.
    • We serve communities through integrated projects rather than separated project.
    • We encourage multi-cultural understanding and harmony between indigenous people and non-indigenous people in the community.
    • We perform our work with political neutrality and independence.
    • We keep our operational work in transparency and accountability.
