The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers.
In most cultures volunteerism is deeply embedded in long-established, ancient traditions of sharing and support within the communities. In this context, UNV volunteers take part in various forms of volunteerism and play a role in development and peace together with co-workers, host agencies and local communities.
In all assignments, UNV volunteers promote volunteerism through their action and conduct. Engaging in volunteer activity can effectively and positively enrich their understanding of local and social realities, as well as create a bridge between themselves and the people in their host community. This will make the time they spend as UNV volunteers even more rewarding and productive.

Through an integrated approach of enhanced knowledge, skills and regional partnerships, P4P supports primary prevention in Asia and the Pacific as a contribution to the long-term improvement of human rights, dignity, peace and development for all. P4P’s specific goal is the primary prevention of violence against women (VAW) or stopping violence before it starts. The programme’s strategy includes working with boys and men to change the root causes that allow for violence against women to persist across all societies. Thus the outcome this programme will contribute to is an increase in the number of boys and men who support ending violence against women. Partners for Prevention is situated at the regional level, meaning that it supports cross-border learning and adaptation of promising practices, consortiums of practitioners engaged in collective action at the regional level, regional analysis of the root causes of violence against women, and consolidates innovations from the local level to the global levels.  Being situated at the regional level, it serves to connect local interventions with global expertise, and helps to inspire enhancements across the region. As a part of these regional activities, P4P works with partners on the ground in approximately 10 countries and Indonesia is one of these countries with partners in Aceh and Jogjakarta.

Laki-laki Baru (LLB) is the national network working on strengthening men and boys’ contributions to ending gender-based violence (GBV) and enhancing gender equality. LLB is now conducting several activities including consolidating the network, improving capacities and skills of its members, and building public awareness through social media campaign. LLB will facilitate the formulation of the network’s ground principles and workplan through serial activities involving both its core members and other women’s rights and social activists. LLB will also carry out activities aiming to strengthening the capacity and skills to support the initiative of working with men and boys in GBV prevention; the activities include the formulation of a curriculum, trainings, seminars, and periodical discussion forums. Furthermore, in raising public awareness on the initiative of working with men and boys in ending GBV, LLB will conduct several activities using social media including Facebook, Twitter, blogs, photo contest, and other activities with youth.
