Messengers of Peace Team- Indonesia Gathering
ACTIVITY 1 – TITLE: Preparation Action: everything needed for the D-Day were prepared and arranged. This includes coordination with the organizing committee and with MoP Indonesia National Volunteers. Coordination meeting were held 4 times, including the technical meeting. There are also informal meetings with MoP National Volunteers held for 6 times, including the Orientation for MoP National Volunteers. But this one is out of the proposed budget, so the cost was covered from our end. Outputs: - The team is well-coordinated and the job is well-distributed - Everything is arranged and well-prepared - MoP Indonesia National Volunteers - consisting of 10 Rover Scouts from Jakarta, Banten and West Java - is formed. They were in charge of supporting technical matters during the event and continuously support MoP Promotion in Jakarta, Banten and West Java Province ACTIVITY 2 - TITLE: 5-Days Training on “Messengers of Peace” Action: a 4-days training was attended by 56 participants from 20 Indonesia Provinces, including the previous and the current MoP project leaders and also the representatives from Indonesian Embassy of Singapore. The training event is held for 4 days, 10-13 April. At first it was proposed to be held for 5 days, but then it had to be reduced 1 day due to National Election and the APR heavy schedule. Participants’ criteria (apart from Project Leaders) were set as follows: a. Male or female, aged 20-25 b. Active in Scouting activities c. Energetic d. Able to communicate in English (active English), OR e. At least able to understand English (passive English) f. Possess the ability to inspire others g.

ACTIVITY 3 – TITLE: Closing, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Action: The trained leaders will hold MoP interventions for local leaders in order to further strengthen the team to promote MoP Initiative and help young people to take actions locally and upload their stories on the MoP platform and/ or social media networking. At first it was planned that NSO MoP Coordinator will do regular follow-up and reports will be collected once in every four month from each of the trained leaders to produce 3 compiled reports within a year. However, this is proven to be ineffective because 1) most trained leaders did not sent]d written report, 2) social-media (Facebook, twitter) is proven to be more effective as leaders do “reporting” and sharing all at once. Documentations submitted will be compiled, then sent and published electronically to all provincial coordinators through Facebook Group and e-mails. Outputs: - Better understanding of Peace Initiative at local levels - Counting from February 2014 (with 2,845 national members), number of registrants on MoP platform increased by 1,654 between April-May 2014 (become 4,499) and reached the number of 6,851 by November 2014, which means that there are 2,352 members joined the MoP Platform between May-November. Thus, the total members added between February 2014 (pre-gathering) and November 2014 (post-gathering) is 4,006 – with the monthly growth of ± 445 new members per month – and we are confident that this number will be continuously growing. - Projects are growing from 156 (by February 2014) to 294 (by May 2014) to 415 (by November 2014), meaning that ± 28 projects are uploaded within one month. - Having analyzed the need for future support to sub-National level, it is indicated that not all Provincial Scouts Provincial Headquarter is aware of MoP. As a result, not all Scouts Provincial Headquarter support the promotion of MoP Initiative. SIGNIFICANT AND POSITIVE CHANGES • Continuously increased peace actions done by Scouts, could be seen from the number of service hours increased up to 480,309 by November 2014. This is a significant change compared to January-February in which there are only 58,111 service hours; increasing to 303,028 service hours by May 2014. We believe that this is because more and more people are now aware of the MoP International Platform and they know how to calculate service hours properly. The 9-month growth reached 422,198 hours, meaning that there is ±46,910 service hours added within a single month. With reference to the total number of service hours and members by November 2014, it can be concluded that the average number of service hours done by Indonesian Scouts within one month has reached 70 hours/person; 2,5 hours of service hours per day. • Being inspired by MoP Team-Indonesia Gathering, there have been 1 MoP Coordinator and 1 MoP Volunteer who have initiated local/small MoP gathering in their respective provinces. The first one was held in Tangerang, Banten, last May with the name “1st Friendship Gathering of MoP-Team Tangerang” and the second one was held in Aceh province with the help of its MoP Provincial Coordinator. • In Jabodetabek (Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, Bekasi) Metropolitan area which is also part of DKI Jakarta, West Java and Banten Provinces, the Promotion of MoP Initiative is done at least once in a month – but so far we always have more than once promotion within a month, starting from April onwards. The promotions were mostly done by MoP NSO Coordinator, MoP Ambassador Harris Nizam, supported by MoP Volunteers living in those three provinces as our main ‘agent’. Below is the list of promotions directly assisted by MoP National Coordinator from April to December 2014: 1) 24 April: Strengthening MoP Network in Depok, part of West Java Province 2) 4 May: MoP Promotion in Rovers Forum held at Bekasi, part of West Java Province 3) 16 May: MoP Promotion at “Minat Saka” Camp held by DKI Jakarta Rover Scouts Council 4) 24 May: MoP Supports “1st Friendship Gathering of MoP Team-Tangerang” held at Tangerang City, part of Banten Province 5) 14 June: Introduction to MoP Initiative at Depok, part of West Java Province 6) 16 June: Promotion of MoP Initiative at “Perkemahan Bakti Saka Wirakartika Nasional” at Cibubur National Camp 7) 10-12 July: MoP Supports “The 1st PRABUHI Leaders’ Meeting” held at Bandung (part of West Java Province) and attended by PRABUHI Leaders coming from various Indonesia provinces: Bali, Jakarta, South Sumatra and Banten. 8) 17 July: MoP Prayer and Peace Messages for Gaza at “Kemah Bakti Ramadhan DKI Jakarta” 9) 17 August: MoP Promotion at East Java Provincial Jamboree 2014 10) 18 August: MoP Colossal Dance at the celebration of 53th Pramuka Indonesia held in Kota Tangerang (Tangerang City), part of Banten Province 11) 30 August: MoP Promotion to Indonesian Sea Scouts at “Pelayaran Lingkar Nusantara” (National Sailing) – Sail Raja Ampat 2014 12) 21 September: International Day of Peace Celebration “Peace Starts with Me” at Taman Pramuka (Pramuka Park), Jakarta 13) 22-26 September: Messengers of Peace Team Aceh Gathering - 5 Days of MoP Training during Aceh Provincial Community Development Camp 14) 18 October: MoP Promotion at Jota-Joti International held in Depok District Headquarter, Part of West Java Province. Attended by 250 Scouts 15) 27 October: MoP Promotion at the National Defense Camp held in Cibubur 16) 1 November: MoP Promotion at the Joint Scout Skills Training for Depok Rovers 17) 20-23 December: Messengers of Peace Promotion at West Sumatera Provincial Rover Moot 18) 30-31 December: Messengers of Peace Promotion at East Kalimantan Provincial Rover Moot In the future hopefully we can arrange The 2nd MoP Team-Indonesia Gathering in which provincial coordinators will be invited to Jakarta to report the progress and actions they have done during the past 1 year, especially in improving network at the local level. This is considered important to monitor the progress and actions performed by provincial coordinator. It is recommended that the next gathering should not be another back-to-back event so that the committee can focus working on one event only and make much better and well-arranged preparation. Social-media administrator at National Level is urgently needed as after MoP Team-Indonesia Gathering, posts related to peace and positive activities done by Scouts increased with the help of MoP Provincial Coordinators who keep promoting the Network. It is hard if there is only one person who has maintain network through social-media while doing administrative matters and offline promotion. The plan is to appoint one of MoP Volunteers (the ones who helped running back-to-back MoP Events in April) to become social-media administrator who will help maintaining MoP Network through Twitter, Facebook and also will help sharing peace activities posted on Scout.org. It is realized that there are many barriers or challenges in implementing and promoting the MoP Initiative. However, we have to keep going no matter what happens, especially in networking aspect. There are so many Indonesian youths interested with MoP, and this is such a great chance to improve/extend MoP Network in Indonesia.
