Asuh Siaga Indonesia
Asuh Siaga was established in 2014 in Indonesia. It is an alliance consisting of 28 key non-governmental member organisations. The alliance works closely with leading government ministries that focus on child protection and family support and has been actively advocating for the promotion of family-based care in Indonesia. The Government has mandated several member NGOs to pilot foster care projects.
The Martin James Foundation has been collaborating with colleagues to support the growing deinstitutionalisation and family strengthening agenda in Indonesia. MJF has been supporting Asuh Siaga with funding and technical input. In 2020, this contributed to developing a training programme and events in Jakarta attended by representatives from the Government, NGOs, and fellow advocates. This year MJF continues to support with funding for a coordinator, who will oversee the operational capacity and further advocacy efforts of the alliance.
