PEKKA (Pemberdayaan Perempuan Kepala Keluarga)


PEKKA or ‘Foundation for the Empowerment of Women Headed Households’ commenced its work in Aceh in 2000 to assist widows who were the victims of conflict in Aceh. Today it has grown to be a mass membership- based organisation empowering female heads of households to secure their livelihoods, participate in social and political life, and improve their standard of living. Today, PEKKA is the largest organisation representing women- headed households in Indonesia, organized in groups known as Pekka unions. They are active in 20 provinces, 65 districts, 220 sub-districts and 850 villages.

Through MAMPU, PEKKA focuses on improving women’s access to government and community social protection programs. They empower their members by building leadership and organizing capacity, providing literacy training, forming savings and loans groups and supporting small business. Their ‘KLIK PEKKA’ innovation is a mobile service which takes government services to the people. This has enabled PEKKA to capture women-headed households in national data systems, and improve their access to social protection programs. MAMPU supports PEKKA branches in 99 villages spread across 20 districts in 14 provinces.
