Yayasan Humanis dan Inovasi Sosial

Videographer and Photographer SP GIE Consultant


Hivos Southeast Asia is an International non-governmental organization guided by humanist values. It aims at structural poverty alleviation with a strong focus on civil society building and sustainable economic development. Hivos Southeast Asia provides financial support for local NGOs, is active in networking, lobbying and exchanging knowledge and expertise. Hivos opts for 100 percent renewable energy, worldwide. Hivos believes energy is a vital driving force for development. Access to energy can alleviate poverty, improve living conditions and propel economic development. However, continuing along the fossil fuel route to harmful climate change will have disastrous effects, especially for developing countries. Hivos would much rather stimulate sustainable development fuelled by clean energy.

Strategic Partnership Green and Inclusive Energy is a programme that is initiated by Hivos, supported by the Netherlands’ Government, to enable more civil society organizations to do lobby and advocacy in the area of Green and Inclusive Energy. The programme was started since 2016, where in Indonesia, it involves three national CSOs as the core team of the programme, and designed to outreach non-energy CSOs, media, wider public, and the government on Green and Inclusive Energy. The three national organizations are Institute for Essential Services Reform (IESR), Koalisi Perempuan Indonesia, and Yayasan Lembaga Konsumen Indonesia (YLKI) which have different target groups and beneficiaries in different areas, mainly in Central Java and Jakarta.

Apart from it, Strategic Partnership Green and Inclusive Energy also has a pilot project for Gender Integration in Renewable Energy sector in Luku Wingir as a pilot village. We collaborate with the local government of East Sumba, the Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection and other actors to support the local community to rely on the renewable energy and end their dependency on fossil fuels, and to support gender-balanced renewable energy use while improving the development and economic activities.

Considering the project comes to an end in the middle of this year, Hivos Southeast Asia plans to capture the project achievement, impact and challenge this project has been experiencing through video and photo documentation. We will document the project in Luku Wingir, East Sumba through video and photos, and the project in Central Java through photos. This will showcase the development, utilization and management of renewable energy by the local community, government and other relevant stakeholders.

This documentation will leave a lasting imprint and increase the awareness of public on green and inclusive energy. We also hope that people in other areas can replicate Luku Wingir pilot project. We believe that by providing such publication, more people will understand and apply renewable energy into practice, thus, making green and inclusive energy to be reality in Indonesia.
