STAPA believe Violence against Women and Girls to help break the silence around this scandal and create a world where women and girls are afforded their basic women human rights. With this program, STAPA will show that the right of women and girls to be free from violence is integral to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As long as violence against women and girls continues, the promise of human rights can never be fulfilled. Socially constructed roles too often thwart the potential of women and girls in every district in rural and urban location in the Indonesia. STAPA believe that discrimination denies them health care and education for example. Discrimination robs girls and women of the the power to make decisions, to earn a living and to be free from violence, abuse and exploitation. Often it deprives them of any legal protection. STAPA is committed to leveling the playing field for women and girls by ensuring that all women and girls have equal opportunity to develop their talents.

For example in Lumajang, STAPA work to ensure that all babies receive the best start to life through gender-sensitive, integrated early childhood care. We work so that all women and girls are afforded quality education, one that prepares them for a productive life. By recognizing and addressing discrimination against women and girls, success in the fight against all forms of discrimination -- class, race, ethnicity and age -- will become more likely, and more lasting. We have learned that entire societies develop when women and girls are enabled to be fully contributing community members. Women, Girls and Violence program is the our urgent program for next 5 years, the STAPA women, girls and violence program focus with issues : trafficking in flesh trade, disaster situations and trafficking with sexual purpose, CEDAW monitoring, domestic violence and women with dis[ability] also our main concern. Lumajang, Sidoarjo and Pasuruan is our main focus district this issues. STAPA is actively helping to reduce gender violence, its impact on the vulnerable and the impunity of its perpetrators, We support global campaign "Ending Impunity for Violence against Women and Girls" that  the theme chosen by the United Nations.


STAPA believes that an important test of a genuine democracy is how it treats its racial, ethnic, and religious minorities. In the enlargement process, great importance is attached to progress in policies to combat racism and to protect minorities in local and national level. STAPA refers to the following racist, homophobia, and xenophobic behaviors: (a) public incitement to discrimination, violence or racial hatred in respect of a group of persons or a member of such a group defined by reference to colour, to sexual orientation, race, religion or national or ethnic origin; (b) public condoning, for a racist or xenophobic purpose, of crimes against humanity and human rights violations; (e) participation in the activities of groups, organizations or associations, which involve discrimination, violence, or racial, ethnic or religious hatred.

Through advocacy, training and education, publications and the media, STAPA supports minority groups as they strive to maintain their rights to the religion they believe, the languages they speak, to the sexual orientation, to equal opportunities in education and employment, and to full participation in public life. STAPA understands how discrimination based on age, religion, class, ethnic, linguistic, gender and dis[ability] can have a multiple impact on disadvantaged minorities, and our campaigns target governments and communities to eradicate such attitudes.

STAPA also promotes cooperation and understanding between communities, as well as encourages cooperation and understanding by bringing together groups with different views to share experiences and solve problems collaboratively. This helps build bridges across communities, while analysing case studies and promoting good practice. In partnership with others, STAPA seeks to persuade decision-makers – and through them communities – of the need for constructive change involving minorities.

Finally, STAPA is dedicated to the values of peaceful coexistence and tolerant interaction between different cultures, ethnoses and religions in local and national level. STAPA works with some of the best experts on issues like minority rights, minority integration, and inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations including sexual minority groups who have . STAPA's work in the sphere of education has lead to the breaking up of conservatism and prejudices and helped the establishment of new, growing and increasingly vocal elite within the minority communities.


Although the education of women and girls is closely tied to good health and women's economic empowerment, women and girls in Indonesia's do not get the educational support they need and deserve. To help reduce barriers that prevent girls from being educated and to equip women to become leaders in their community, we launched our Educating for All since 2006. Education is important for everyone, but it has special significance for girls. Education must be combined with other social investments, especially in reproductive health as a part of primary health care. Education and health care together offer individuals and families, especially young people, the chance to make more responsible choices in their lives. The STAPA education for All theme focus with the theme of  quality education for all, improving the welfare and status of female young teachers and education personnel, ending discrimination in education. With each year, this theme has increase – reaching more local organisations in more districts, and also working more with local grass root  organisations to link local action with regional and national advocacy.
