For Indonesia, poverty is a national problem, so the government is attempting to solve the problem of poverty with various programs. However, in general, the results of the program can not be said to be significant, because in many places, the number of poor people is increasing. Problems with various characteristics of poverty is not easily solved without the involvement of all elements. Because, the primary key of the efforts to reduce poverty in the region is the establishment, as well as the institutionalization of network communication, coordination and cooperation of the three pillars in the area: local government, community and care groups (NGOs, private sector, universities, religious / community leaders, and the press ). The problems of poverty can only be addressed if the three components on mutual cooperation in the spirit of togetherness, and participate to find alternative solutions.

Act No. 6 of 2014 on village mengamanahkan a very significant role to the figure of the village head.
