Their activities include 1. research (core), 2. information campaigns (publications and public discussions), and 3. support system with their peer counsellors.

    SGRC was established by students (19-23 years old) from various majors and faculties at the University of Indonesia due to the lack of sexual education and information among the youth.

SGRC strives to conduct discussions and focus on doing research related to gender and sexuality.

    SGRC members are digital natives, easily adapting to new technologies and global issues. Their work focuses on locations in Jakarta and West Java. They have published more than a hundred articles, held several public discussions with at least had 200 attendees each, and one workshop. SGRC also works with their network and helped support the women march in Jakarta in 2017 and 2018.

    • Project

      The Indonesia National Commission on Violence Against Women (Komnas Perempuan) identified sexual cyber crimes as part of sexual violence against women. Sexual cyber violence has been increasing along with the country’s internet usage growth. Young people familiar with technologies create their own cultures and habits with possibilities of harassment and violence. They can be vulnerable to targeting and blackmailing due to their sexuality. This project aims to tackle the issue through a peer support group and counselling to help them solve their problems and fight back together.

      The support group aims to recover and empower youth with awareness, training and counselling. A system is developed where the youth is engaged through a social media information campaign. They can also contact SGRC via email and report their experiences for assessment. A peer counsellor is then sent for support. Potential counsellors are located in Jakarta and West Java with support group meetings held every two weeks. SGRC has set a target of 35 youth counsellors ranging from 15-25 years old of diverse backgrounds.

      The project has 3 phases over a 12-month period:
      1) Training and capacity building for peer counselling team to sharing cases, knowledge, and information on sexual cyber violence;

      2) Piloting of the Support Group as well as training and mentoring for community building;

      3) Assessing the project for reporting.

      The project develops a new training module on how to make a support group system with the youth as experts on cyber sexual violence. After the project, young people can understand how to survive from sexual cyber violence and make rapid impacts on other communities.
