General Support Participatory Program: 

Every village got Rp.15.000.000 for a general support project. Using a participatory approach, the financial support was used as an initial fund for any kind of empowerment or physical development based on the urgent general need of the villagers.  The community members participate in the project in the form of resources and labour. They also participate in bottom up planning process to ensure the priority of the community, form their own committee and monitoring mechanism. Besides materials and cash, most communities chose labour in community work system (gotong royong) as form of community participation.  The villages committee has to provide financial report to SUNSPIRIT and to the community as a medium of learning about transparency and accountability.
