      Why former Female Migrant Workers (BMP)?

      They often experience violence and lack physical, mental, economic and social protection from when they depart from their home towns and from when they return. The National Bureau of Placement and Protection of Indonesian Workers (BNP2TKI) 2013 data shows migrant workers registered 14,505 complaints of violence. 671 of those cases are from Cianjur District, making it 5th in overall national rankings.

      Why the elderly?

      The Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS) data states that in 2014 the number of elderly in Indonesia was 20.24 million (8.03% of the total population) with females at 10.77 million, including former BMP. This number will continue to increase every year, while economic, social and protection guarantees for elderly women  are still lacking. Former BMP will continue to experience this lack of guarantees as they enter their elderly phase in life.

      The project Reintegrating elder former migrant workers aims to increase the participation of former female migrant workers (BMP) in pursuing social protection for the elderly former BMP. The specific goals are:

      (1) Former BMP collect data on the conditions of elderly former BMP in 4 villages of Kecamatan Sukaluyu, Cianjur District. The community and the government can use this data as a baseline when implementing programmes involving the elderly.

      (2) Increase capacity of elderly former BMP through critical education, and facilitating attitude and behaviour change. They can better realise their potential and be able to voice their needs through a community called Nyakola.

      (3) Increase the access of elderly women to quality health services.

      (4) Increase the participation of elderly former BMP in the fulfillment of health services and social protection.
