Girls Leadership Academy Officer         


Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organization that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. In Indonesia, Plan International operates since 1969, and in 2017 Yayasan Plan International Indonesia (Plan Indonesia) was established as national entity of Plan International in Indonesia. Plan Indonesia is currently implementing its Country Strategy 4 (CS 4) covering fiscal year 2018 to 2022, where the country purpose is in line with the global Plan International’s Purpose “to advance children rights and equality for girls”. Our ambition is to enable at least 1 million girls and young women to learn (gain skills for work), lead (empower to take action on issues that matter to them), decide (have control over their own lives and bodies) and thrive (grow healthy and protected from violence). It means that we will take actions to identify and facilitate the removal of obstacles that prevent children, especially girls, and young women from enjoying their rights and participating fully in Indonesian society. This goal will be achieved by implementing quality programmes and projects as well as influencing decision makers and key stakeholders to make the required changes.

Girls are defining leadership for themselves. For them, the most important leadership qualities are striving for social and gender justice, making decisions collectively and leading in a way that empowers and help others. Countries that are led by women and are more gender equal have greater economic success, governments that are less corrupt and societies with a higher quality of life. Sparking a new revolution in girls’ power could therefore be the paradigm shift the world needs to succeed on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – the global roadmap aimed at positive progress for people and planet.


But what girls and young women see around them in not encouraging. In terms of power and control –who makes the decisions at family, local, corporate, and national level – we are a long way from their vision of leadership and from achieving gender equality. The lack of female role models, which runs through all levels of society, restricts girls’ ambitions and means that changing the face and qualities of leadership will be harder for them to achieve. Nevertheless, girls and young women want to be leaders. From adolescence and into early adulthood, they are motivated to effect change in their lives and they want to work towards improving their community and country. The Girls Leadership Academy (GLA) is initiated by Yayasan Plan Internationa; Indonesia in order to put their ideals into practice, in every sphere, girls need encouragement, education, role models, and opportunity.
