This case study profiles Perempuan Kepala Keluarga (Women-Headed Family Empowerment, or PEKKA), our long-term partner organization in Indonesia. Since its founding in 2001 (by JASS Southeast Asia co-founder Nani Zulminarni), PEKKA has leveraged a vision of women’s collective power and participation for social change. PEKKA addresses social exclusion through popular education, leadership development, and social accountability and policy advocacy, enabling thousands of marginalized women to collectively engage the public and political sphere, with great success.
Read PEKKA’s unique feminist strategies for counteracting social exclusion, which provide a fresh lens to the field of social accountability research.
