History & Legality

The birth of Indonesian Rural Skills Development (BITRA Indonesia) was led by 5 young people (at that time), they were; Soekirman, Wahyudhi, Sabirin, Swaldi and Listiani, based on siding with the poor, weak, underprivileged and disadvantaged, especially those in rural areas and marginalized. Based on these thoughts and alignments, since 1986, BITRA Indonesia has started to carry out rural human resource development activities in North Sumatra.

BITRA Indonesia is a social, non-profit institution, commonly called a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) or Non Government Organization (NGO), as it is internationally known. Initially BITRA Indonesia was in the form of a paguyuban (an association without a legal entity), then changed and registered into a Foundation, in 1992. BITRA Indonesia Plenary Meeting in February 2005, BITRA chose the form of legal entity to be a Foundation, then BITRA Indonesia was standardized into a social institution that has a legal entity, based on in Law number 28 of 2004 concerning Amendments to Law number 16 of 2001, concerning Foundations, in 2007.

Then it was renewed again through the Decree of the Minister of Law and Human Rights (Kemenkumham) RI with General Legal Administration number: AHU-0000129.AH.01.05. 2019. With the long name “Indonesian Rural Skills Development Foundation”, abbreviated YABITRAPI, but in daily terms, we still use the name “BITRA Indonesia”.
