Bali accelerates poverty eradication plan

The Bali administration is designing a program to accelerate poverty eradication by empowering poor villages in the province.

The program called the Village Integrated Development Program (Gerbang Sadu) Bali Mandara will start this year by targeting five villages in a pilot project. Currently, there are 82 out of a total of 706 villages in Bali in which the poverty rate is higher than 35 percent, mostly in Karangasem and Buleleng. The administration would make a clear and comprehensive plan to ensure that the program would be well implemented. This new program will run simultaneously with other poverty eradication schemes that have been carried out by the administration since last year, including house building and renovation programs, a free healthcare service (JKBM) and the integrated agriculture program (Simantri).
