Training on proposal writing for the association board members

The mission is aimed to improve the capacity of the Board members of Serumpun Association on project proposal writing. Serumpun is a small NGO/association with limited human resources capacity. Since its creation in 2014, Serumpun association manages only several self-funded activities to do the community group assistance. They never get the project funds from donor. They have attempted to send several project proposals to donors but never get positive feedbacks. The association board realizes that one of the reasons is the lack of capacity to write the project proposals which meet the donor requirement though there is an urgent need to take actions in the field to solve the existing problems of abused women and local indigenous people. The limited resources of the organizations are by the far the main constraint of the association to develop the program. This is the main problem that the association would like to solve the soonest possible. Serumpun wishes to increase the capacity of the board in writing a proposal documents. The association realizes that it will be essential skills to be built and improved if the association wishes to sustain the organization existence.

Profile of the participants of the mission: ? They are the board members of Serumpun (the Chairperson, the Vice-chair, the Secretary, the Treasurer, and members) ? There is also a possibility of additional participants. They would be the representative of local NGOs on the local network which share the similar situation of limited resources as Serumpun. ? Age between 25-45 y.o. ? Most of them are graduated from high school, some of them hold diploma degree ? Some of the participants speak limited English. A translator is needed during the mission but Serumpun can mobilize the resource from the network.None of the participants have received similar training since its establishment in 2014. The mission will be the first training on ‘proposal writing’ for them.The skills on proposal document development are the essential skills to be acquired by the participants in order to enable them to produce the qualified and realistic project proposals. It will be the first step to mobilize the potential and available financial resources in order to implement the program. The ability to mobilize the financial resources will sustain the association to continue the intervention for women empowerment and sustainable forest management. Serumpun has no sufficient resources to hire available local consultant or trainer to facilitate this training, so the volunteer mission on this field is expected to fill the gap of the association's need.

Perkumpulan Serumpun (hereafter referred as Serumpun) was established on 27 August 2014 in Balikpapan based on Decree of Minister of Law and Human Right no. AHU-00428.60.10.2014. The creation was initiated by several women activist (Yulita Lestiawati, Agustina, Friska, Sonia, Dwi P, Aida Rahmah, and Rahmina) with the objective to bring forward the situation and condition of women discrimination in Borneo. The women in Borneo experience various difficulties to have just access on economy, health and education. The activist members from various backgrounds bring their professional experiences particularly on the environment and human right fields to construct the organization long term vision of achieving gender equality and justice in the sustainable development. Serumpun is a non-governmental association managed by local activist who are engaged to the women and children empowerment activities. The initiative to form an association to empower women and children was taken to respond the particular problems of local women in the society as the followings: • The local society perceive the legal measure for domestic violence is a social and cultural disgrace • Women’s lack access to information and knowledge on the natural resource management constraints women to access and control to the natural resources management • The unwell organized SME (small business entrepreneur-ship) and community based groups due to lack of accompaniment. Whereas the need to increase the economic income is high due to the high living cost in Balikpapan City The association focuses their intervention on women and children empowerment, gender-responsive policy review, and advocacy. Their missions are: • To educate and to encourage the gender roles on social, economic, and politics • To improve the women awareness in order to achieve the equality and justice • To build the women capacity on health, education, economic, and environment • To encourage the women participation at public action Since its creation, the association accompanies continuously the women and indigenous community in two areas in East Kalimantan province. By far, the organization does not implement the projects with donor’s supports. This is related to the limited skills of the association committee to design a project then to develop it into donor’s standard proposal documents. Since its creation in 2014, the members actively accompany the women and indigenous group through: • Continuous accompaniment of women who are the victim of domestic violence cases in Balikpapan. The association members provide legal consultation and conduct regular visit to the abused women. • Continuous accompaniment of Paser indigenous community group (Masyarakat Adat Paser) on sustainable forest management in Muara Ande Village, Paser District. The concrete activities are assisting the community group to design projects which could support the forest sustainable management and conservation in the village. For the time being, Serumpun accompany 3 women for domestic violence cases in Balikpapan. In Muara Ande village, the beneficiaries are all the village population of about 300 people. The entire budget for the activities (mostly for accompaniment, for transportation, and meetings) are paid by the member’s contribution. However, the association needs more financial supports to develop the program. Serumpun has some partners in term of coordination, supporting to strengthen capacities and broader network such as DDPI (Provincial Council of Climate Change), Yayasan Prakarsa Borneo, also TNC – that a staff of Serumpun has got trained SIGAP from TNC. The intervention area of Serumpun includes: 1. Balikpapan city for domestic violence accompaniment, 2. Balikpapan city for women group around coastal and marine area 3. Muara Ande Village, Paser District for forest sustainable management accompaniment
