To help Indonesians living in poverty to improve their quality of life and to focus on projects that encourage self sufficiency.
To distribute funds to organizations which benefit many rather than just one individual.
To promote projects which give priority to the following:
- education and vocational training for children and adults
- orphanages and centres for street children
- the aged
- health and welfare
- disabled (mentally and/or physically)
- women’s issues
Procedures and Requirements
Ensure that all organizations and/or individuals approved for assistance meet the selection guidelines for funding.
For projects located within Jakarta, a visit to the organization must be made prior to approval for funding or assistance
After funding has been awarded to an organization, periodic visits (at least 2 per year) must be conducted to ensure the funds are being used effectively and as specified in the original proposal. A written report of each visit will be submitted to the committee or reported and recorded in the meeting of the committee.
Records of all project information and funding are to be kept up to date.
Attendance at BKKKS and Interswat meetings by the Co-ordinator of the committee or an alternate committee member should be regular.
Requirements and Priorities for Funding
Requests for funding assistance must be submitted in writing.
Organizations requesting funding must be a registered yayasan (institution) through the BKKKS (Co-ordinating Body on Social Welfare Activities).
Priority is to be given to organizations and/or individuals operating in Jakarta and surrounding area.
A first time donation to an organization should be limited to Rupiah 5 million.
The maximum of funds awarded per year to any one individual should be Indonesian Rupiah 2 million and the total amount of donations to individuals should not exceed 10% of the budget.
Fund requests for building purposes are acceptable if the funding will be jointly with other international women’s social development committees and a project leader from the CWA Social Development Committee is assigned. Priority is to be given to the building of sanitation and water projects.
Written receipts must be obtained for all CWA donations of funds or specific items.
The CWA Social Development Committee will consider donating, as the occasion arises, towards a one-time expense if our budget can accommodate it. In the past these requests have been for such things as further assistance for high school graduate students to go on to university, start up funding for schools (desks, chairs and books) and small business start up funding for charities to enable them to be more self sufficient. We also help support miscellaneous projects in conjunction with the Lion’s Club if we are able.
Our list of projects does change from time to time. If we find a project has become self-sufficient, has sufficient funding from other groups or has strayed too far from its original proposal we will do a re-evaluation. This is usually done in conjunction with any other international women’s social development committees who may be jointly supporting the project. At all times, we try to focus on charities where we can do the most good with the limited funds we have. The projects are routinely evaluated, inappropriate projects are dropped and then replaced with more appropriate projects as our budget allows.
