    • Project

      The Anda Li Marapu (The Marapu Way) project will increase access to social and education services for indigenous Sumbanese Marapu believers in East Sumba including children (15-18 years old), youth (18-30 years old) and women through fostering political participation. This impact will be achieved by improving the district level functionality of the Organization of Marapu Believers (known as the Organisasi Penghayat Kepercayaan Marapu or OPKM) which was formally registered with the Ministry of Law and Human Rights (Kementrian Hukum dan HAM) in 2016 but is not yet functioning to optimal capacity. Once this organization has improved functionality through the support of civil society organizations and the district government, these organisations will join to form a Marapu Taskforce. This Marapu task force will support the Organization of Marapu Believers (OPKM) to mobilize their resources and advocate for better social and education access for Marapu believers throughout East Sumba.

      Traditional community-based Customary Institutions (Lembaga Adat) will be established in the cases where they do not yet exist and/or will have their functionality improved in 5 targeted villages within the 4 East Sumbanese sub-districts of Umalulu, Rindi, Kota Waingapu and Kahaungu Eti. These locations have been selected based on the fact they contain the highest population of Marapu believers in East Sumba according to 2020 data from the East Sumba Bureau of statistics. This statistical data was cross-referenced by SID and Marungga in January 2021 by a qualitative rapid assessment in the 4 sub-districts which also identified the various issues affecting Marapu believers in these locations.

      Senior high schools in targeted sub-districts will standardize a model of Marapu inclusive formal education services. Additionally, Marapu inclusive informal education programs will be implemented at the village level.

      Local government at the district and village level will create and enact relevant policies to increase access to social and education services for Marapu believers, and the results of this project will be recognized by the government at the province and national level. It is expected the government will share the results of this project for replication in other areas throughout East Nusa Tenggara province and Indonesia.
