About us
Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty. That means we tackle the inequality that keeps people poor. Together we save, protect and rebuild lives.. When disaster strikes, we help people build better lives for themselves, and for others. We take on issues like land rights, climate change and discrimination against women. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can enjoy life free from poverty.

Oxfam GB is a member of international confederation of 19 organisations working together with partners and local communities in the areas of humanitarian, development and campaigning, in more than 90 countries.


Creating Spaces, hereinafter referred to as CS, is a project conducted by Oxfam in Indonesia supported by GAC (Global Affair Canada). The project aims to reduce violence against women, girls and child marriages in Indonesia. To achieve these goals, the CS focuses on three objectives (3 Pillars), namely: (1) engaging community actors to support and promote positive gender norms; (2) supporting women and girl survivors and victims of violence and child marriage; and (3) expanding knowledge and building capacity of institutions and alliances (networks) to influence policy changes.

Oxfam in Indonesia collaborates with four partners in conducting this project, namely: (1) Komisi Perempuan Indonesia, with working areas in five districts in West Java (Bogor, Sukabumi, Bandung, Indramayu, Cirebon); (2) LBH APIK Makassar, with working areas in two districts and 1 city in South Sulawesi (Gowa, Pangkep, Makassar); (3) Yayasan Kesehatan Perempuan, with working areas in three districts in East Java (Blitar, Bojonegoro, Ponorogo); and (4) Yayasan Tunas Alam, with working areas in two districts in West Nusa Tenggara (West Lombok, North Lombok).

Until now, the project has been running for three years (April 2016 - March 2019) and starts entering its fourth year (April 2019 - March 2020). Broadly speaking, the achievements of the CS program for the last 3 years are: (1) increased commitment of key figures who are capable to influence legal regulations at village, district/city and national levels; (2) increased understanding, skills and courage to speak up for women survivors in order to access and to drive the improvement of various legal services and fulfilment of the right to get identity (marriage certificate through Itsbat Nikah (legalization of unregistered marriage) and birth certificate for children born from child marriages); and (3) the stronger use of innovative knowledge related to good practices and networks in the prevention and handling of violence against women, child violence and child marriages.

Some of the activities carried out by partners in achieving these results are, among others, strengthening the capacity of influencers (religious leaders, communities, women survivors, girls, women activists, youth, government officials); cooperation with government and non-governmental organizations to carry out activities in preventing and eliminating violence against women, girls and child marriages; and conducting a series of advocacies encouraging governments at national, district/city and village levels to issue policies that support the elimination and prevention of child marriage and violence against women and girls.

Entering the fourth year and to ensure the achievement of the objectives of the CS program, in addition to the abovementioned activities carried out by partners, Oxfam Indonesia is supported by the involvement of all partners in conducting the research on child marriage. In general, this research aims to find effective initiatives and efforts to prevent the practices of child marriage.
