Improving Women's Livelihoods in Rinjani,Indonesia

$100 $11,900
Raised Remaining


Empowering women-headed households in communities through training in better land use practices, provision of basic health care services, and sustainable management of forest resources.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

A major tourist spot, Mount Rinjani is one of the largest volcanic mountains in Indonesia. Communities live on the margins of the forests surrounding the area. Local farmers clear forests to cultivate crops and tree gardens together, in a region physically isolated and economically deprived. Men often migrate to Malaysia in search of jobs leaving behind their wives to take care of the household with little or no resources to sustain them.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will use participatory methods to help women living in the forest margin areas, especially those whose husbands have migrated, to solve their priority problems.

Potential Long Term Impact

The program will help identify links between family planning, reproductive health & sustainable use of natural resources. The program will also enable women to have a greater voice in forest resource management and provide them with new opportunities
