Indonesia, literacy for life skills and entrepreneurship: promising EFA practices in the Asia-Pacific region; case study

This case study on promising Education for All (EFA) initiatives in Indonesia was commissioned by UNESCO Bangkok with support from the Japanese Funds-in-Trust (JFIT) as one of five country case studies from the Asia-Pacific region. The Asia-Pacific region is full of successful and innovative initiatives that have helped governments accelerate EFA progress at the country level. Governments in the region and beyond can learn from these experiences. It is in this context UNESCO Bangkok has embarked on the documentation of such practices. Among the policies and strategies in Indonesia that have contributed to progress made towards the achievement of the EFA goals, the Literacy for Life Skills and Entrepreneurship (LLSE) programme is highlighted in this study and is viewed as a promising practice for accelerating efforts to achieve EFA Goal 4. The case study examines the LLSE intervention and explores its role in terms of national literacy achievements, particularly the EFA goal on adult literacy. The study also explores the relationship between literacy and increased entrepreneurship competencies of adults. The case study involved the collection of quantitative data utilizing questionnaires and the collection of qualitative data from observations, semi-structured interviews, and analysis of quantitative data sources on poverty levels and literacy rates.
