Oxfam - Calling Consult for: Baseline Study - The Indonesian Women Leadership (I-WIL) project

Together we can end extreme poverty for good. Will you join us?

Oxfam is a global movement of people who won’t live with the injustice of
poverty. Together we save and rebuild lives in disasters. We help people
build better lives for themselves. We speak out on the big issues that
keep people poor, like inequality, discrimination against women and
climate change. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can
live without poverty.

All our work is led by three core values:
Empowerment. Everyone, from our staff and supporters to people living in
poverty, should feel they can make change happen.
Accountability. We take responsibility for our actions and hold ourselves
accountable. We believe that others should also be held accountable for
their actions.
Inclusiveness. We are open to everyone and embrace diversity. We believe
everyone has a contribution to make, regardless of visible and invisible

Oxfam – Calling Consultant for:
Baseline Study - The Indonesian Women Leadership (I-WIL) project
(code: BS C0218)


I-WIL project is focusing on working with women and girls from the NTT and
NTB regions of Eastern Indonesia, one of the poorest regions in the
country. It will specifically address the most vulnerable groups of women
in Indonesia, including women with few economic opportunities, women with
a disability, and women and girls affected by violence.

The intended impacts are to ensure that women will have greater access to
and control of economic resources and opportunities and increased
household income. More women will be represented in political and
leadership roles at the community and village level. The performance and
influence of gender inclusive businesses (e.g. MSMEs or social enterprises
that have the potential to be women led, develop products and services
that benefit women, work in women value chains, or change social norms)
will be improved. The project will also work to shift harmful gender and
social norms in relation to gender equality, improve services and access
to justice for women and girls affected by violence, and support women’s
rights organisations and networks to have a strong voice on influencing
government policy and dialogue on issues of gender equality.

I-WILL project was re-designed from February to May 2018 to incorporate a
greater focus on women’s economic empowerment. A participatory process
which included staff from Oxfam in Indonesia, Oxfam Australia and
partners. The goal of the project is that by 2023, more women and girls in
Eastern Indonesia will be economically independent, participate in
decision-making that affects their lives, hold positions of leadership,
and live a life free from gender based violence.
