Training on Proposal Writing for Staff Member

The mission is aimed to improve the capacity of the Staff members of YASANTI on presenting project idea and project proposal writing.
YASANTI is relatively a long-standing NGO and continues to maintain its vision and mission to build the capacity of marginalized women's groups. Although YASANTI has been established for a long time, YASANTI is not a big organization because YASANTI is not "aggressive" enough in submitting project proposals.
Many staffs are stuck in regular daily activities and lack of time to develop new project ideas so that the projects handled are relatively the same from time to time.
YASANTI current leader wants change and want to increase the staff capacity in writing project ideas to be submitted to donor agencies or relevant sponsors. And considering the communication means has changed greatly, YASANTI wants to learn how to "sell" program ideas in an interesting way in the era of communication technology that is very much developed as it is today.

YASANTI is a non-governmental organization founded in 1982 in Yogyakarta with the aim of empowering women's groups, especially women workers, to obtain better political, economic and socio-cultural rights. YASANTI was founded by 6 women activists from several universities in Yogyakarta who were concerned about the conditions of women workers who did not get decent civil rights as citizens. The group of workers who were assisted initially was informal women workers, especially women porters in traditional markets. The assistance was then extended to women who worked at home (domestic workers), then women industrial workers. Activities carried out by YASANTI include: - Organizing groups of women workers - Awareness raising on social, political and economic rights for women workers - Technical assistance for the women porters in traditional market, domestic workers (women working at home), and industrial labor women. - Strengthening capacity through education and training - Advocacy through dialogue and lobbying to government and legislative institutions - Documentation, publications and campaigns on women's rights - Network development - Economic empowerment programs YASANTI currently has 10 executive staff, all are women, led by Director Ms. Amin Muftiyanah, a senior woman activist in Yogyakarta. YASANTI is currently implementing women empowerment program in 6 municipal districts in 2 provinces, namely Yogyakarta and Central Java with the funding support from MAMPU Project (AusAID). YASANTI already has its own representative office in the city of Yogyakarta, and also has a training center that can be used for the training for the community group. The activities have been promoted through the web and also social media, but have not been managed properly. At the moment, YASANTI is financially supported by one donor agency, and in the future they will require funding support from other donors. To get support from YASANTI donors, it is necessary to have the capacity to convey project ideas well, attractively, and on target, so that they are easily understood by donor agencies
