BackgroundThe ILO-MAMPU Project aims to improve access to employment and decent work for poor, vulnerable and marginalized women in conditions of equality in Indonesia. The Project Phase 2 has been implemented since February 2014 by engaging 4 partner non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and 6 partner trade unions (TUs). The partner NGOs and TUs are implementing the Project’s pilots and initiatives in North Sumatera, Banten, West Java, Central Java, Yogyakarta and East Java provinces.
The ILO MAMPU Project implements 4 strategies, in which strategy number 1 is to pilot innovative approaches to address challenges faced by homeworkers and number 2 is to strengthen the institutional capacity of implementing partners and other project partners to promote decent work and social and economic empowerment of homeworkers. Implementing partners will increase the knowledge of homeworkers on their rights and how to face their challenges through organizing activities, group meetings and training sessions. A series of capacity development program is designed to strengthen the institutional and technical capacity of implementing partners to be able to do that. In Phase 1 – 2013, the Project has developed a series of training materials in areas that are relevant for this objective, which include materials on advocacy, organizing, legal literacy, leadership and gender.
The Project will organize a two-week Training of Trainers workshop to build the capacity of staff and facilitators of implementing partners and leaders of homeworker groups in the areas of advocacy, organizing, legal literacy, leadership and gender. They will utilize their increased capacity from this training to better organize and represent the rights and interests of homeworkers in Indonesia. The training will be delivered in a participatory approach, where participants will take the role as trainers among other participants to deliver some of the training modules. The Project staff will be the main trainers and will deliver most of the training modules, as well as provide coaching to participants when they take the role as trainers.
