    Capacity Building

    In the short term, the program of capacity building is intended to improve knowledge, understanding, and awareness of local people to a particular issue related to their daily life. In the long run, this program is expected to contribute to the change of local attitude in the frame of improvement of the ongoing situation. This program is not only limited to the aspects of health, economy, and environment, but also to the aspects of democracy, corruption and human rights. The capacity building program is usually implemented in the form of trainings, seminars, workshops, awareness campaign, etc. The following are some implemented projects/activities under this program:

    Awareness Campaign on Money Politics and Basic Human Rights
    As a part of contribution in promotion of democracy and establishment of good governance in North Buton District, IDRAP in cooperation with EED Germany had implemented a project of "Awareness Campaign on Money Politics and Basic Human Rights, from December 2009 till November 2010. The project was to teach and awareness of local people on the danger of money politics (vote buying) to the fulfillment of their basic human rights. The main idea is to inform people particularly those who have right to vote that the elected government by money politics tends to be corrupt, and corruption violates human rights. Corruption is a major cause of poverty. The project activities undertaken were: distribution of campaign media (such as billboard, banner, callendar, sticker, booklet, etc.); human rights education for students; and public meeting for villagers. Because of unhapiness from local authority and local politicians, public meeting activity was only carried out in 10 villages of 20 targeted villages.
    Awareness Campaign on Political Right of Kulisusu People
    North Buton is an autonomous district, but nearly all members of district parliament (DPRD) are from other district (Muna District). This means North Buton people have no self-determination and self-governance on their own territory. A pilot project on increasing local people awareness to promote chance of people from North Buton (Kulisusu People, one of the indigenous ethnics in North Buton) to take control in parliament of North Buton had been implemented in cooperation with NCIV Netherlands. The project lasted from June 2008 till May 2009 carried out activities e.g. village forum, awareness campaign through written media and door-to-door discussion; and voter education. The project was implemented in 9 villages of North Kulisusu Sub-district.
    Capacity Building for Staffs of Indigenous Based Organizations
    There are many indigenous-based organization in South East Sulawesi. They are commonly established as informal association to mediate member's interest particularly in the aspect of ethnic relationship. IDRAP considers them as a great asset in development of rural and indigenous people in South East Sulawesi. To this end, building the capacity of staffs of those organization is extremely essential. This is the main reson of implementing a project of "Capacity Building for Staffs of Indigenous Based Organizations" from November 2004 till October 2005, in cooperation with ICCO Netherlands. Through this project, 80 indigenous students from various indigenous ethnics in South East Sulawesi were involved and actively participated in the project.
    Human Rights Training for Kulisusu People
    This project had been implemented from May 2004 till October 2004, in cooperation with UNHCHR Switzerland. As targeted, 20 people from Kulisusu were involved and participated in the project. The project was designed to improve the participant's capacity by: improving their knowledge on human rights in general and indigenous people's rights in particular; having adequate skill in identifying issues in the field of human rights; and having capacity in developing formal communication/complaint to any procedures/mechanisms including Procedure 1503. There were four main project activities conducted, namely: training; field visit; organization visit; and conference on Kulisusu issues.
    Human Rights Education for Indigenous Students in South East Sulawesi
    The rights of indigenous people as set up in the UN Declaration on the Right of Indigenous People are not yet recognized by the government. Many indigenous lands have been annexed into the government-sponsored projects without prior consent from indigenous communities and taken over without compensation or restitution. It is essential to inform and teach indigenous students that they have full rights on their territory. To this end, a project of "Human Rights Education for Indigenous Students in South East Sulawesi" had been been implemented from March 2004 till February 2005 in cooperation with NCIV Netherlands. Through this project, 30 indigenous students from various indigenous ethnics in South East Sulawesi were involved and actively participated in the project activities i.e. course on indigenous right, field visit, organization visit, and workshop on indigenous issues and the youth.
