    • Project

      Building Resilience of Vulnerable Activist in Indonesia (BRAVE) is developed out of concern for violence, discrimination, and risks of criminalization towards LGBTIQ community in Indonesia, particularly toward transgender community who have layers of vulnerability due to their gender identity and gender expression. This project specifically aims to empower and protect Transgender Human Rights Defenders (HRD), who are experiencing multidimensional vulnerabilities not only because of their gender identity and gender expression but also because of their identity as human rights defenders who are at the forefront in defending and advocating for the rights of transgender community in Indonesia.
      In developing this project, Transformation Consortium has divided roles in carrying out each activity and short-term objectives to each consortium member, according to the area of expertise and experience of each organization. Division of roles are as follows; Jaringan Transgender Indonesia (JTID) will be working on short term objective 1 (Enhanced capacity for Transgender Human Rights Defenders, internal consortium and support system related to protection mechanism), the Crisis Response Mechanism (CRM) will focus on short-term objective 2 (Establishment of a protection mechanism for Transgender Human Rights Defenders), perEMPUan will focus on the short term objective 3 (Increased support from society toward transgender community), and Sanggar Swara as the lead applicant (host) will be handling this project’s management, reporting and audit budget. Through this division of roles, we are certain to see each activity implemented and measured properly since it will be managed by organisation with the appropriate set of expertise and experience.
