Poverty alleviation programs have not always been able to reach the poorest and most marginalized groups, and this is reflected in the slow pace of poverty reduction. Using funds from the World Bank and in collaboration with the Minister for People’s Welfare and local NGOs, PNPM Peduli targets marginalized groups in 13 provinces, 26 cities/districts, and 47 districts in 5 areas. It aims to strengthen civil society capacity to empower marginalized groups, improving their socio-economic lives. The program’s strategies include the engagement of NGOs, the private sector, and government; facilitating and advocating policy changes at national and regional levels; mobilization of financial resources and donor engagement; and documenting lessons learned and best practices.
Main activities undertaken to meet the needs of marginalized groups include building a basic services model, facilitating draft regulations and policies, improving economic opportunities and providing basic service through alternative channels. The results have generated strong support from local governments seen in the changes to the 2012 RAPBD budget as well as their commitment to the 2013 RAPBD budget; the improvement of marginalized groups’ skills in organizational management (the formation of cooperatives), business diversification, product packaging, market expansion and administration; the increasing participation in voluntary HIV/AIDS testing, especially in the coastal areas of East Kupang; regular teaching and learning for street children, indigenous communities SAD (Suku Anak Dalam) and isolated communities Pipikoro; and an increasing ability for planning, monitoring and evaluation as well as writing lessons learned for CSOs.
