Project Title: Strengthening capacity of New Men?s (Laki-laki Baru) Alliance for

violence prevention and supporting its social media campaign

Brief Project Description:

Partners for Prevention (P4P) is a joint UNDP, UNFPA, UNIFEM and UN Volunteers
regional support programme for Asia and the Pacific. Through an integrated
approach of enhanced knowledge, skills and regional partnerships, P4P supports
primary prevention in Asia and the Pacific as a contribution to the long-term
improvement of human rights, dignity, peace and development for all. P4P?s
specific goal is the primary prevention of violence against women (VAW) or
stopping violence before it starts. The programme?s strategy includes working
with boys and men to change the root causes that allow for violence against
women to persist across all societies. Thus the outcome this programme will
contribute to is an increase in the number of boys and men who support ending
violence against women. Partners for Prevention is situated at the regional
level, meaning that it supports cross-border learning and adaptation of
promising practices, consortiums of practitioners engaged in collective action
at the regional level, regional analysis of the root causes of violence against
women, and consolidates innovations from the local level to the global levels.

Being situated at the regional level, it serves to connect local interventions
with global expertise, and helps to inspire enhancements across the region. As a

part of these regional activities, P4P works with partners on the ground in
approximately 10 countries and Indonesia is one of these countries with partners

in Aceh and Yogjakarta.
Laki-laki Baru (LLB) is the national network working on strengthening men and
boys? contributions to ending gender-based violence (GBV) and enhancing gender
equality. LLB is now conducting several activities including consolidating the
network, improving capacities and skills of its members, and building public
awareness through social media campaign. LLB will facilitate the formulation of
the network?s ground principles and workplan through serial activities involving

both its core members and other women?s rights and social activists. LLB will
also carry out activities aiming to strengthening the capacity and skills to
support the initiative of working with men and boys in GBV prevention; the
activities include the formulation of a curriculum, trainings, seminars, and
periodical discussion forums. Furthermore, in raising public awareness on the
initiative of working with men and boys in ending GBV, LLB will conduct several
activities using social media including Facebook, Twitter, blogs, photo contest,
