We strive to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world. As an independent development and humanitarian organization, we work alongside children, young people, our supporters and partners to tackle the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood and enable children to prepare for and respond to crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge. For over 80 years we have been building powerful partnerships for children, and we are active in over 75 countries.
Plan International Indonesia has been operating in Indonesia since 1969, according to the Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Indonesia. In 2017, Plan International Indonesia transformed into Yayasan Plan International Indonesia; registered by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. This transformation aims to reach more children, especially girls in Indonesia.
The unprecedented catastrophic COVID-19 global pandemic will not only slow down the effort to end child marriage but will even potentially result in an additional 13 million child marriage cases worldwide between 2020 and 2030. From January to June 2020 the Government of Indonesia Directorate General of Religious Judiciary received 34.000 applications on the dispensation of minimum age of marriage (Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection, 2020). Among these are vulnerable girls living under poverty and marginalization in Indonesia. This situation will certainly require higher commitment and larger resources to meet SGD Target 5.3 on human development.
Gema Cita is aiming to extend the good practices and investment that have been made by Yes I Do project, for initial 24 months in two districts: West Lombok District (West Nusa Tenggara Province) and Sukabumi District (West Java Province) where the prevalence and vulnerability to Child Early and Forced Marriage (CEFM) practices and teenage pregnancies are relatively high. The case of West Lombok and North Lombok is increasing almost twice during pandemic COVID-19, 69 cases in 2019 and 135 cases in 2020 (Regional Office Ministry of Religion for West Nusa Tenggara Province, 2020). While in Sukabumi District, the Religious Court registered 89 Marriage Dispensation cases in 2020, which was 35 in 2019.
The project will build on and extend the results and various (government/other) stakeholders commitments achieved by the end of the Yes I Do! Indonesia program (December 2020) in these locations and at National level such as worked closely with the established Community-based Child Protection Mechanism which was locally legitimated through 22 village regulations that protect children from various violence, including from child marriage, prevented 18 child brides-to-be from early and forced marriage, engagement with 23 schools and community learning centres has led to the adoption and implementation of minimum standards on child-friendly schools and 18 youth businesses groups have established and generated income for young people. The project’s overall objective: Improved ASRHR and greater gender equality and empowerment of women and girls in West Lombok District and Sukabumi District. Project specific objective: Adolescent and young people, especially girls and young women, are able to make informed decision to live free from child marriage and teenage pregnancies.
There are three outcomes to be achieved along the project period. As the project implementation has been extended into 9 months implementation to strengthen a youth-led advocacy on regulation, therefore, the Endline study will only measure two outcomes. The outcome three will be assessed at the end of project extension.
Total beneficiaries targeted is 5000 adolescent and young people direct beneficiaries (13-24 years old, 60% female, 40% male) from 2 villages and 5 schools in West Lombok and 2 villages and 5 schools in Sukabumi District, 1000 adults direct beneficiaries (>24 years old) including community and women leaders (village leaders, government officials, religious leaders, local professionals: midwives and health workers, social workers, teachers, etc), 10,000 indirect adolescent and young people (13-24 years old) and 10,000 indirect parents/caregivers, and 324,000 influenced people from Plan Indonesia digital platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube).
At the end of Phase 1 implementation of Gema Cita, the project has successfully transformed 10 schools into Child-Friendly Schools and enhanced the capacity of PATBM in 2 villages. Additionally, Gema Cita has bolstered the ranks of 156 Peer Educators (PE) in Sukabumi District and 154 PE in West Lombok District. A total of 310 PE has disseminated information on SRHR and the prevention of child marriage through a regular series of discussions, reaching 3,475 students (1,983 females and 1,492 males) in Sukabumi District and 1,875 students (1,001 females and 874 males) in West Lombok District.
Gema Cita has not only improved the knowledge and capacity of school personnel, village officials, adolescents, and youth regarding SRHR and child marriage prevention but has also successfully prevented and halted 13 cases of child marriage (9 cases in West Lombok District and 4 cases in Sukabumi District). In the process of preventing these 13 cases of child marriage, Gema Cita actively facilitated and encouraged local stakeholders to take the lead in implementing these initiatives.
