Project Officer Belu (PO Belu) - Handicap International Federation


Humanity & Inclusion (HI) is an independent and impartial aid organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, taking action and bearing witness in order to respond to their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights. For more information on Humantiy & Inclusion please visit web site at and Humanity & Inclusion is the operating name of Handicap International Federation.
During the past seven years, Indonesia has expressed its commitment to enhance the rights and opportunities of persons with disabilities by ratifying the UNCRPD, and a vibrant national disability movement has emerged, demonstrating its capacities by providing recommendations to the government concerning legal reform, raising awareness amongst the general public in some areas and setting-up networks across the country.

Still, there are important gaps between national commitments and local implementation in fulfilling these rights. Disability is not yet recognized as a significant and cross-cutting human rights issue in planning & budgeting processes, particularly at sub-national level and there is a lack of awareness from local decision makers and social service providers to develop inclusive initiatives and how to foster the participation of people with disabilities. Appropriate regulations at provincial and district-levels remain limited and enforcement mechanisms reflect the existing gaps between national and local levels in protecting the rights of persons with disabilities.

HI has been present in NTT since 2010 and has since contributed to the disability movement through various projects designed to enhance participation of people with disabilities in various topics of the development process including inclusive disaster risk management, inclusive education, and inclusive planning and budgeting process. A project focuses on social economic inclusion as a full participation in the society and aim to seek increased participation and equal opportunities for traditionally excluded groups – such as women, vulnerable youth, people living in poverty and people with disabilities named “Building inclusive and sustainable economic growth through Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) participation” (BISEG Project) has been implemented from the second quarter of 2018 in 6 districts in NTT  with a local CSO, Perkumpulan Relawan CIS Timor (CIS Timor), with the support of funding from the European Union under its CSO-LA program.
