    • Project

      Strengthening the role of indigenous women in customary institutional structures is a project being implemented within the indigenous community that encourages the birth of Archipelago Indigenous Peoples Alliance (AMAN) women at the Regional Management level in Sumbawa and West Sumbawa Regencies. AMAN focuses on increasing the involvement and representation of indigenous women in their local political structure thus ensuring their space in decision-making processes. Another key output is the strengthening of the Sumbawa SAFE Women, a group that previously collaborated with another Voice grantee, the Center for Innovation Policy and Governance. It is through the previous collaboration that AMAN realised the need to continue the efforts to push for women’s participation in the local government’s various activities and initiatives.

      The group is creating a pool of indigenous women representatives from each indigenous community in the region. Various programmes are co-created with the communities through the representatives. At the same time, the profiles and stories of the representatives are developed and amplified to inspire other potential women champions. Lastly, dialogues with both the government and private sectors are organised as spaces where the representatives and other community members voice out their ideas and aspirations.
