July 2021 – December 2021 (Part 1)
Ford Foundation Indonesia continues the role of Spring Strategy in the FIRe program to assist capacity building and capacity building for institutional and financial resilience not only for BUILD grantees (BUILD Grantees), but also for non-BUILD grantees and other civil society organizations in Indonesia by developing a Center Resources (Resource Hub for Strengthening Capacity on Financial Resiliency or “Re.Search”) using funding from social bonds. The Re.Search program will be facilitated by a work team consisting of local resource development organizations that have previously been involved in the FIRe program, namely Penabulu, YBIE and Remdec as the main implementation partners of the program (Core Organization/CO) and PLUS as the main facilitator and program leader. CO will work together on sustainable program management in coordination under the program leader. Throughout the program, capacity builders outside of CO and others are engaged as experts and/or consultants, depending on the needs of the program and the priorities of the Ford Foundation BUILD Grantees.
