About the MAMPU Program Closing

MAMPU is a partnership program designed for 8 years, and since 2012, MAMPU has supported civil society organisations and organisations interested in gender issues to form a coalition with the community, the executive, the legislature and the private sector to encourage evidence-based changes. This year marks the completion of MAMPU Program where many achievements and changes have been made at the community, regional, and national levels. These results have led to positive changes where women's capacity, voice and influence, and access to services have increased.

In connection with the completion of the MAMPU Program, the MAMPU Program Secretariat together with all national and regional partners plan to hold a program closing conference where the 8-year journey of the MAMPU Program is strategically designed and attractively packaged into a number of online and offline activities that will showcase and celebrate MAMPU key achievements linked with MAMPU's theory of change, as stated below:

  1. Improved Capacity and Readiness for collective action lays the foundation of MAMPU's contributions to women's empowerment and gender equality.
  2. Increased Voice and Influence by improving capacity and readiness which will contribute to more significant voice and influence, particularly on policy development and implementation.
  3. Increased Access to Essential Services resulting from the increased collective influence on policy development and implementation, which will certainly contribute to better access to services for poor women across Indonesia.

To achieve these goals, MAMPU conducted a series of activities, which began with a Talkshow Series "Sapa Perempuan MAMPU" that invited female members of the grassroots CSO that MAMPU Program and partners have worked with in enhancing gender equality and women's empowerment in various locations across Indonesia.

The MAMPU Program Closing Conference brings together agents of change in gender equality and women's empowerment from areas where MAMPU and partners have worked. They include Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), central and local governments, traditional and religious leaders, academic and research institutions, as well as grassroots women groups who will share their experiences, most significant change stories, lessons learned and achievements with the MAMPU Program during its eight years of operation in Indonesia.

The vast scale and scope of activities with the MAMPU Program partners over the past eight years has resulted in a variety of experiences, approaches, and achievement in thousands of women's groups and communities in 27 provinces. These achievements include helping to empower over 70,000 women through their involvement in more than 3,500 local groups across 27 provinces of Indonesia. As a joint initiative of the Government of Australia (DFAT- Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) and the Government of Indonesia (BAPPENAS), MAMPU supports Indonesian government to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by building women's leadership and empowerment to improve their access to essential government services and programs. In total, MAMPU has worked with 13 organizations and more than 100 local partners in over 1,000 villages across Indonesia.


The MAMPU 2020 Closing Conference aims to showcase and celebrate MAMPU's 8-year journey in gender equality and women's empowerment particularly in preparing and establishing partner networks, increasing their voice and influence on strategic policies, and opening up greater access to services for women, especially poor women and other vulnerable groups.

  1. Showcase MAMPU's 8-year journey with Partners by highlighting most significant change stories of individuals and groups from various themes and work areas of MAMPU .
  2. Present information and data on the achievements of the MAMPU Program based on MAMPU's Theory of Change, namely increasing the capacity and readiness, voice and influence, as well as women's access to services.

  4. Share recommendations to stakeholders on issues of gender equality and women's empowerment based on the results of a number of studies and researches that the MAMPU Program had conducted throughout its 8 years of implementation. 
  5. Celebrate the achievements of the MAMPU Program with Partners through reflection activities, sharing success stories, and recommendations on the roadmap for the gender equality movement and empowering Indonesian women in the future. 
  6. Inspire participants to formulate, endorse, or revise various policies and regulations that support the achievement of gender equality and women's empowerment.
