World Vision Indonesia









World Vision ministry in Indonesia started in 1960 with the support to several children homes in Java. World Vision founder Robert (Bob) Pierce, following his visits to Indonesia in late 1950s, appointed Germann Edey as the organization’s representative. Edey and several volunteers worked from his house in Batu, Malang, to channel World Vision assistance to the children homes.



The office was moved to Malang in 1963 and then to Jakarta in 1979 to accommodate the growing ministry. Since 1980, World Vision Indonesia conducted its service under an MOU arrangement with the Social Affairs Ministry.
The ministry approach has undergone transformation all through the years. In 1960s and 1970s, the main focus of the ministry was supporting the lives of children in scores of children homes in Java, Sulawesi, Bali, East Nusa Tenggara, and Kalimantan.
Since early 1970s, World Vision Indonesia initiated the community development (CD) approach to provide a more integrated support for the empowerment of poor community and their children. The first CD project was initiated in Loksado hamlet in South Kalimantan in 1972 and then also in Lerak-Batu Ahim hamlets in West Kalimantan a year later. These projects improved basic education, primary health, income generation, and basic infrastructure.
World Vision International adopted this ‘Indonesia’s approach’ during its conference in 1974 and implemented the CD project in many other countries. Between the 1970s and 1990s, this CD approach has led to the empowerment and transformation of many lives across the globe. 
Since the middle of 1990s, World Vision introduced the Area Development Program (ADP) approach to ensure a more effective and lasting transformation in the lives of the poor communities. The ADP approach, with longer intervention lifetime and much bigger and concentrated programs, has indeed led to a more sustainable development and impact.
Relief and reconstruction
All through the decades, World Vision also channeled emergency relief support to those affected by natural disasters or communal conflicts. In 1963, World Vision supported the victims of Mount Agung eruption in Bali and then also supported the resettlement of displaced people in West Kalimantan, Maluku and some other places in 1970s and 1980s.
More massive emergency and reconstruction responses took place between 1997 and 2009 following severe economic crises, drought from the El Nino weather phenomenon, bloody communal conflicts, earthquakes, and the gigantic tsunami in Aceh province.
In Aceh alone, for example, World Vision provided food and non-food aid to more than 100,000 people and built more than 3,500 permanent houses to ease the lives of the survivors.
Currently, World Vision -- in special partnership with Wahana Visi Indonesia -- supported some 50 ADPs in North Sumatra, Jakarta, East Java, West Kalimantan, Central Sulawesi, East Nusa Tenggara, North Maluku, and Papua.
Every fiscal year, World Vision channeled some US$20 million of fund entrusted by donors and sponsors in several countries -- and local sponsors through Wahana Visi -- to fight poverty and bring about lasting transformation in the lives of the facilitated community and their children.

SUBUD


The spiritual practice of Subud, known as the latihan kejiwaan, is the result of a renewed contact with the divine force of life. It is a natural process that arises within any person who asks for it, taking place at his or her own pace and according to his or her own nature. Sometimes, when we are still and quiet, or in an unusual heightened state of awareness, we can be suddenly aware of this deeper life going on. The process of the latihan reconnects us with something greater than ourselves and keeps this special awareness alive and active.
The latihan is a process, a receiving, and not a teaching. Nobody is expected to believe anything, only to recognize and trust what he or she experiences. People of different religions may find their faith deepened, and practice the latihan in harmony with each other and with those of no particular religious affinity.
The essence of the latihan is to allow and follow the spontaneous inner movements from within. It involves no instructions or rituals. It is different for each person.
Many people feel a sense of calm and a deepening of the natural connection with wisdom, one's higher self, the divine, or God, depending on one's preferred terminology. The latihan is a catalyst that leads to the development of one's character and which can guide one's everyday life. It can strengthen one's sense of intuition or the teacher within. Normally, this process of transformation is gradual and integrated with the practical requirements of one's life.
The name 'Subud' is a contraction of three Sanskrit words: Susila, Budhi and Dharma. Susila Budhi Dharma (Subud) represent the possibility to surrender to the divine power within, allowing it to effect inner change that will lead to the qualities of a true human being.
The latihan is available free of charge, although the association relies on contributions. Generally, there is a waiting period of up to three months before joining. This period provides the opportunity to meet people experienced in the latihan and to become informed about the process.
Subud was founded by an Indonesian, Muhammad Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo. He is usually referred to by Subud members as 'Bapak' which is an Indonesian word for a respected older man. The latihan came to him as a revelation, suddenly and unexpectedly. He was able to pass it on to others, and it is now practiced by thousands of people in 83 countries.
The Subud organization is world-wide. There are national and international officers and committees and there are local groups where people meet to practice the latihan together. The association was established in the East in 1947 and in the West since 1957 and is working for positive benefit in the world. The ultimate vision is to affect an open-minded, caring world-wide culture.
The World Subud Association ("WSA") is a not-for-profit organization with its headquarters in Washington, D.C.(USA). Subud members engage in a non-denominational spiritual practice called the "latihan kejiwaan," a practice originating in Indonesia that has now spread worldwide. We welcome new members 18 years and older. Our organization does not discriminate on any basis, including nationality, gender, color, age, or sexual orientation. Subud is not a religion and is open to persons of all faiths and those who do not follow religions. WSA and other Subud organizations do not have a policy or practice to change the religious beliefs or practices of Subud members (or nonmembers), their sexual orientation, or their rights to state their views on such subjects, consistent with their own religions and the laws of the countries in which they reside.

Dharma Drum Mountain

Ven. Master Sheng Yen, The Founder of Dharma Drum Mountain

“The Dharma is so good, yet so few people know about it and so many people mis-understand it.” It was based on this simple belief that Venerable Master Sheng Yen founded Dharma Drum Mountain.
Calling himself “an itinerant monk pressing ahead through the wind and snow,” and named as one of the fifty most influential people in Taiwan during the past four hundred years, Venerable Master Sheng Yen has had a life full of miseries, deprivations, tests, and turning points.
The Master has had a weak physique and been prone to illness since childhood. After becoming a monk in the Wolf Hills in China, he went through years of having to perform deliverance rituals day and night for a living, then served in the military, and was finally re-ordained. Thereafter, whether on solitary retreat, studying in Japan, in America spreading the Dharma, or founding Dharma Drum Mountain, he has always been able to find a way forward when there seemed no way out. In his hardships his compassionate vows strengthen, and through his perseverance his wisdom shines. To him, life is a process of realizing the Buddha dharma.
To rise the status of Buddhism and the quality of monasticism in Taiwan, at the age of forty Master Sheng Yen resolutely went to study in Japan. After obtaining a doctorate, he began to propagate in both the United States and Taiwan, and, as a Dharma heir in both Linji and Caodong lineages, traveled around the world to teach Chan practice, ushering numerous people both Eastern and Western into the world of Chan. In order to spread the Dharma through language and concepts accessible to modern people, even with his tight schedule the Master still continues to write, and has published over one hundred books.

An erudite scholar, the Master has established the Chung-Hwa Institute of Buddhist Studies and Dharma Drum University to cultivate first-class researchers. In recent years, he has also engaged in public dialogues with leading figures in the fields of technology, art, and culture, and has even collaborated with other denominations and religions. His expansive mind and international outlook have earned him recognition from people in various fields both at home and abroad. Under his guidance, Dharma Drum Mountain has established its bases in Taiwanand its roots in Chinese Buddhism while steadily progressing toward greater internationalization and diversification. More about Master Sheng Yen
