BACKGROUND:

Wahana Visi Indonesia (WVI) operates in the largest economy in Southeast Asia. Indonesia has charted impressive economic growth since overcoming the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s. Today, Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous nation, the world’s 10th largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity, and a member of the G-20. An upper middle-income country, Indonesia has made enormous gains in poverty reduction, cutting the poverty rate by more than half since 1999, to 9.4% in 2019.

Considerable challenges remain in achieving Indonesia’s goals. Out of a population of around 267.3 million, about 25.1 million Indonesians still live below the poverty line. Approximately 20.6% of the entire population remains vulnerable of falling into poverty, as their income hovers marginally above the national poverty line. While greater efforts are being made to improve basic public services, the quality of health clinics and schools is uneven by middle-income standards. Approximately 1 in 3 children under the age of 5 suffer from stunting, which impairs brain development and will affect their future opportunities. Approximately 10.53% children aged 5-17 is unable to read and write and 56% children aged 5-6 is illiterate. Approximately 2 out of 3 children and adolescence (male and female) in Indonesia ever experienced violence along their life.

Indonesia was built on the premise of pluralism, as enshrined in the state ideology, Pancasila but tension over the relationship among religions in Indonesia has always been present. Respect for the reality of difference is a fundamental value for humanitarian activity. The diminishing respect for diversity increase the difficulty to solve the problem of poverty.

The Global World Vision Strategy has established that countries like Indonesia is under “Medium Developing” country: Countries in “Medium Developing” category can expect stable international funding, unless there is sub national fragility within the country. Growth is expected to come primarily from local income diversification. Area Program Replacement: globally less than 60% replacement, for Indonesia to manage remaining Area Program.
