Twenty-seven organisers of the Indonesian Women’s Home Workers Network (JPRI) from six regencies across East Java held a consolidation meeting in Malang Municipality on 9 December 2019. The activity was held to evaluate the work of JPRI in 2019, share updates about the developments of work programs in each region, and discuss JPRI East Java’s 2020 Work Plan.

“Throughout the year, we have been helped by support provided by the MAMPU Program, especially computer use training. Now we can create reports more systematically and archive and store data,” explained Wuwun from JPPRI East Java. The consolidation meeting
is expected to improve JPPRI East Java’s capacity and assist the network to become an independent, sustainable organisation when MAMPU’s assistance to the organisation finishes in mid-2020.

In 2020, JPPRI East Java plans to revive the activities of the Women’s Home Workers’ School (SPPR), implement organisational management practices, engage in strategic advocacy, and revitalise the Bangkit Sejahtera Abadi Cooperative (BSA). To support these goals, the MAMPU Program will work to increase the capacity of JPPRI East Java members in entrepreneurship.
