Hivos believes that human life in its many forms is valuable; that all people deserve to achieve their full potential while bearing responsibility for sustaining our natural environment. Living a life of freedom and dignity, with respect for each other and the planet, leads to greater individual well-being and fair, vibrant societies

Yayasan Hivos, in collaboration with Just Association Southeast Asia (JASS SEA), is implementing a project under GEDI called Women’s Voice and Leadership (WVL), a multi-year project supported by Global Affairs Canada (GAC). The goal of the project is to improve the enjoyment of human rights by women and girls and the advancement of gender equality in Indonesia. To implement the project, Yayasan Hivos and JASS SEA collaborate with five (5) women’s rights organizations (WROs) with strong legitimacy among their constituencies and the broader community: Rahima, Fahmina, Rumah KitaB, Perempuan Mahardhika, and FAMM Indonesia. This project supports women’s organizations in three focus areas, such as improving institutional governance for the sustainability of women’s organizations, integrating feminist methodology in community organizing and advocacy, and increasing the effectiveness of women’s networks to eliminate discrimination and harmful practices for women and girls. In this project implementation, these seven institutions have collaborated with more than 81 communities/organizations/collectives in 41 districts/cities in Indonesia.


Currently entering its no-cost extension period, the project focuses on the exit strategies to strengthen the feminist analysis; strengthen the WROs’ organizational governance; promote regeneration of feminist leaders and activists; strengthen the ongoing advocacy, networks, and movements, and; continue the political accompaniment activities to local women organizations and communities. To further support the partners in documenting and promoting the changes and results related to the aforementioned exit strategies until the project closes in August 2023, Yayasan Hivos plans to produce short videos that capture the stories of change from the local women organizations and communities
