Women’s Empowerment and Peace Building (Maluku, Indonesia)

201804 Maluku Goringe Hydroponics (4) crop

More than a decade after the conflict between Christian and Muslim religious groups in Ambon, there is still a significant need to rebuild relationships between religious groups and to provide economic opportunities for women.

We support mixed groups of Christian and Muslim women with education and microfinance to increase access to economic opportunities in the community and the ability to have a voice in household decision making.

This encourages friendships between women from different faith backgrounds, enabling women to act as agents of peace within their families and community.

Our Impact

Last year we provided training on gender roles, child protection and peace and reconciliation to almost 300 women.

573 people identified community vulnerabilities and developed strategies to enhance resilient livelihoods.
