Rusunawa Daan Mogot or RDM (located in west Jakarta) is a housing complex built by the Jakarta government for poor families who have been relocated from flood-prone areas in the city, such as on riverbanks and under bridges and overpasses. GK Indonesia is handling the community organizing and development programs as well as coordinating social services being provided by various government agencies and other foundations. RDM has 8 communities/towers. Each community consists of 80 families.

A new housing complex in East Jakarta called Rusunawa Jatinegara Barat or RJB (total 520 families) will also be managed by GK Indonesia.
