RAISING WOMEN’S VOICES, REALIZING RIGHTS, BUILDING RESILIENCE IN INDONESIA

Oxfam in Indonesia

Oxfam has been working in Indonesia to contribute towards finding lasting solutions to poverty and suffering in the country since 1957.  Oxfam has been supporting local and national partners in many parts of the country to realize our shared  vision to ensure women’s rights to a sustainable livelihood, to be heard and to have access to basic social services, are respected, in particular  during shocks or disasters. We are presently implementing a wide range of sustainable development and disaster preparedness initiatives in 6 provinces and 25 districts. Our principal Government partner is the  Ministry of Social Affairs .

Vision for Indonesia

Oxfam envisions an Indonesia where women are equal citizens and everyone can enjoy their rights even in times of shocks and disaster.

Goal for Oxfam in Indonesia

An integrated Oxfam programme, with a strong voice based on its collaboration with an extensive network of partners, will make lasting changes in the lives of poor and vulnerable people by influencing changes in policy and practice amongst the most influential decision makers.

Partnership Principles

Oxfam works with groups that share similar views as catalysts or change agents, facilitators of a process to build communities’ confidence and capacities, as opposed to defining themselves as experts providing services, aid, goods or outputs. Oxfam’s partnerships are based on six core principles: shared vision and values;  complementarity of purpose and value-added; autonomy and independence; transparency and mutual accountability; clarity on roles and responsibilities; and  commitment to joint learning to communities and acting on their behalf.

Sectoral and Geographic Focus

Our present portfolio of work focuses on working to achieve Gender Justice, Economic Justice and Rights in Crisis. Our development works is focused in Eastern Indonesia and Papua. This focus area was decided based on  consideration of the developmental context, opportunities for advocacy, and Oxfam affiliate strengths and resources. However, our emergency response includes a national remit to respond in any geographic area. The strategy also allows for the possibility of taking on Disaster Risk Reduction work in places with extremely high vulnerability to repeat disasters. Pilot projects are implemented with national partners and their networks.

Together we are working to achieve our vision of ‘a just world without poverty’ and to be a powerful partner in global and local communities of people connected for change.

A FUTURE WITHOUT POVERTY.

WE CAN MAKE IT.
