Abstract

There have been many policies and strategies on community empowerment programs aimed at realizing prosperous villages. There was a model of empowering social institutions as an effort to increase social resilience by the Ministry of Social Affairs, measured by four indicators: (1) ability to protect the vulnerable villagers; (2) participation in social organizations; (3) ability to prevent social conflicts; and (4) ability to maintain local knowledge for managing natural and social resources. However, the model experiences obstacles, such as high dependency on government assistance, its ceremonial nature, and obscurity in institutions and human resources to actuate. Therefore, research is needed to reformulate the socially resilient village. This research uses qualitative methods through literature studies, interviews, and observations. The results show that social resilience is manifested in terms of togetherness and cooperation among villagers by utilizing local potential and knowledge. Another finding is the ability of communities to access digital technology positively.
