PERMAMPU (Perempuan Sumatera Mampu)

PROFILE

PERMAMPU is a consortium of eight women’s organisations from across Sumtra. Established in 2012, it is made up of Flower Aceh (Aceh), Perkumpulan Sada Ahmo (PESADA) (North Sumatra), Organisasi Pengkajian dan Pemberdayaan Masyarakat (LP2M) (West Sumatra), Pusat Pengembangan Sumberdaya Wanita Sumatera (PPSW) (Riau), Aliansi Perempuan Merangin (APM) (Jambi), WCC Cahaya Perempuan (Bengkulu), WCC Palembang (South Sumatra), and DAMAR (Lampung).

Through MAMPU, PERMAMPU works to influence strategic actors including religious and cultural leaders, health service providers, schools and local governments. Since 2015, PERMAMPU have established a significant grassroots network of over 788 women’s groups in 214 villages, in 33 districts across 8 provinces of Sumatra. They work closely to enable women members of these groups to claim their sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR). PERMAMPU’s strategy seeks to develop their economic and collective capacity at the grassroots, improve government service delivery, and ensure that improvements are anchored in policy, regulations, and budgetary allocations. Especially critical, is the role of religious and customary leaders who can influence the social and cultural norms that constrain women from accessing sexual and reproductive health services.
