The Empowering Indonesian Women for Poverty Reduction (MAMPU) program is a new program that aims to improve the lives of up to 3 million poor women in Indonesia. The program has been designed to build and strengthen gender interested networks and coalitions for improvements to the lives of poor women in five thematic areas:
- improving women’s access to government social protection programs
- increasing women’s access to jobs and removing workplace discrimination
- improving conditions for women’s overseas labour migration
- strengthening women’s leadership for better maternal and reproductive health
- strengthening women’s leadership to reduce violence against women.
The first phase of the program is expected to commence in February 2013 and will run for three and a half years. The program implementation mechanism includes a role for an implementing service provider. The proposed implementing service provider will support the program by managing the resourcing, oversight, administration and monitoring of activities across the program. This will include the recruitment of key personnel, the delivery of technical assistance and capacity development across all components, administering and overseeing the provision of grants, and coordinating activities with the program partners.
