The ILO Project under the Access to Employment and Non-Discrimination component of AusAID’s MAMPU Programme takes an institutional approach and a multiplier strategy to strengthen women’s access to employment and decent work in Indonesia. The Project is also promoting decent work for homeworkers. Homeworkers generally do not have access to social security nor are they provided health benefits by their employers. In the event of injury or illness, there is little or no protection or safety net to help them or their families survive on a reduced or cut-off income. Various homeworkers have multiple creditors they are indebted to not only to cover unexpected health-related expenses, but also to cover their daily costs of subsistence living. It is therefore very urgent to educate them with financial literacy knowledge, so that, women homeworkers will have capacity to manage their basic financial activities.
In order to support this work on women homeworkers, the Project will provide financial education training to them. A training package (modules) on financial education that specific addressing to those target groups is required. The MAMPU Project therefore adapted the financial education module based on migrant workers activities into the specific needs of MAMPU beneficiaries such as “women homeworkers”.
The ILO MAMPU Project hired a National Consultant to work on this adaptation and the modules already adapted with proper illustration pictures represented the homeworkers background. Now the module was translated into Bahasa Indonesia and ready to be used for ToT process.
The project was preparing collaboration with Bank Indonesia (BI) to conduct the Training of Trainers using this modules. BI agreed to collaborate and support the TOT and follow-up action by synergizing the participants and other activities on financial education under the BI and ILO MAMPU coverage areas. The ToT will involve BI staffs or BI Consultant in East Java, Central Java, Jakarta, West Java as well as North Sumatera (if needed) and also ILO Partner on MWPRI facilitators in East Java. Total participants from BI will be at least 15 people, and from ILO partners will be 5 people. After the ToT, all trained trainers should conduct Training of Beneficiaries (ToB) to their respective areas (especially the target group of homeworker under MWPRI networking. BI also proposed to conduct TOB to its beneficiaries (especially for women beneficiaries). The ToT will be conducted in second week of February 2014 in Surabaya, and ToB will be started from March 2014 onwards.
This ToT will be facilitated by Rini P. Radikun, ILO Financial Education Consultant (as main trainer) and Budi Maryono, ILO-EDS (as co-trainer).
