Head of Fisher Center in Central Java- SAFE Seas

Date: 24-Nov-2021

Location: Tegal , Central Java, Indonesia

Company: Plan International


Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organization that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And its girls who are most affected.

Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

Currently Yayasan Plan International Indonesia (Plan Indonesia) is implementing a four year (December 2017-November 2021) Safeguarding against and Addressing Fishers’ Exploitation at Sea Project (SAFE Seas Project) with funding from United States Department of Labor (DOL).

By the end of the project, SAFE Seas expects to contribute to the reduction of forced labor and human trafficking (FL/TIP) on fishing vessels in Indonesia and the Philippines. Plan Indonesia is working closely with various actors who deal with FL/TIP and fishery industry issues. At the national and local level, Plan International is working with the three key ministries: Manpower, Fishery and Transportation, agencies, organizations that provide support services to fishers and their families and local governments as well as civil society organizations and communities. Plan Indonesia also engages the private sector in order to seek their cooperation in complying with International anti-trafficking regulations. Through the project, Plan Indonesia also actively involve fish workers, both individually and collectively as members of fish worker unions, to combat FL/TIP. At the global level, Plan is engaging other international organizations, which have experience working on FL/TIP issues to work on solutions including ILO and IOM.
