AWO International’s involvement in Indonesia is centered on advocating for safe migration and strengthening migrants’ rights. Community organizations and self-help groups are capacitated and strengthened by AWO International and their NGO partners on the ground. This way participants of our projects can effectively advocate the needs of their communities and represent public issues in conversation with official government institutions and other stakeholders.
We also support local organizations in responding to emergencies and in building the capacity of communities to manage and reduce the risk of natural disasters. The prevailing risks of volcanic eruptions and earthquakes carry the potential for natural disasters striking local communities.
