Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2015
This description of Yossy Suparyo's work was prepared when Yossy Suparyo was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
More than 70,000 “desa” (villages) are registered as the lowest level of rural government administration in Indonesia. Unlike their urban counterparts, “kelurahan” (sub-sub-district), these rural “desa” are linked with poverty and backwardness, a failed initiative of the higher-level government. With his ICT platform, Yossy enables village administration to formulate locally specific asset-based programs, to mobilize their own resources for development, and to collaborate with potential contributors from outside their villages.
