I.                    Background
Strong and effective network and partnership among development actors can bring together valuable knowledge, contacts, capabilities, and legitimacy to mutually achieve common development objectives. Plan International believe that building a better partnership is pivotal to the quality of the work we do. Effective and fruitful partnerships guided by six partnership principles that of 1) mutual respect and listening, 2) knowing the partners, 3) clearly defined objectives and non-negotiables, 4) sharing responsibilities, 5) learning from each other; and 6) common sense. Commitment, clear objectives, an open attitude, and space as well as time are required to deal with challenges to practice these guiding principles, such as issues related with donor compliance/ procedures, time constraint of project implementation period, transactional relationship trap, and poor/ unclear performance management.

Plan International Indonesia –now operates as Yayasan Plan International Indonesia (Plan Indonesia), will extend and strengthen its reputation as an important technical and strategic partner on child rights for government and civil society. To achieve this, Plan Indonesia will work in partnership with government and civil society to develop and scale up gender transformative local solutions to strengthen our programs and projects. Working with national networks, Plan Indonesia believes that advocacy objectives on gender equality, promoting the realisation of girls’ rights and youth engagement will only be possible when it is done through effective, innovative, and inclusive partnerships as part or grass roots movement with support from national coalition.

Time restriction for getting to know each other and making a decision to partner merely based on intention to share resources and responsibilities to deliver the project, often limit both organizations to gain optimum benefit of the engagement, leverage the partnership beyond contractual agreement and sustain the impact the project.
