Who We Are


The saddest thing about poverty is not that people are poor,
but that they all have in themselves, the potential to be great.


We believe that the poor are not simply passive recipients of aid. We believe that women can play an important role in the fight against poverty. And we believe that young people can make the world a better place.

NDI is an award winning Singapore-based non profit aimed at ending energy poverty through women empowerment. Our work is in rural Indonesia.
