Indonesia is currently facing challenges that are related to physical inactivity, non-transferable diseases and social exclusion among children and young people. In order to tackle those challenges, Indonesia´s national development and education policies include a focus on value education and life skills. In collaboration with the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture, the GIZ, on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) implemented the multi-actor partnership “sport for development” (Indonesian title: Sepak Bola untuk Pendidikan Karakter).

The overall objective of the multi-actor cooperation is to establish sport, in particular football, as a tool for character building, promotion of life skills and healthy lifestyles in Indonesian educational and sporting structures. Focusing especially on promoting the development of children and youth, it encompasses the qualitative and quantitative improvement of physical activity and sport-for-all programmes to foster physical literacy, to promote a healthy lifestyle and enhance civic education. It furthermore aims to strengthen structures and enable environments for the integration of physical activity in educational settings.

In this context, capacity building activities on how to combine sport pedagogical measures and national development goals are provided. Hence, the S4D programme should enable the government and local partners to use sport as an inclusive, pedagogical and cost-effective method in education structures. Furthermore, the programme’s goal is to advise counterparts on the development and design of integrated S4D monitoring and evaluation frameworks and practice tools in cooperation with the German Sport University Cologne.

At implementing level, the Indonesian Football Association is– together with the German and Australian Football Association (DFB, FFA) – a key local partner for the delivery of activities to improve the quality of pedagogically oriented physical activities in schools.  In addition, the GIZ S4D programme supports the training of primary and middle school teachers in 7-day license courses in various locations in East Java and Maluku. The Australian partners (DFAT/FFA) support the placement of Indonesian instructors to deliver the training courses to the teachers in the two provinces.

As an additional component and in the context of sustainable tourism and employability, the German Cooperation’s Innovation and Investment for Inclusive Sustainable Economic Development (ISED) programme realized a three-day S4D course for employees of 20 hotels on Lombok Island. Interactive small games based on the country-specific S4D method of combining play and sports with discussion, reflection and learning can enrich employability competences for young as well as established professionals.

The sport-pedagogical qualification of coaches and teachers is the main component of our advanced education and training programmes in the field of S4D. Below you will find workshop documents from Indonesia which give you some insight into workshop contents and discussions.

We invite you to have a look at the following teaching and learning material, which was created by the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and our partner organizations in Indonesia. You will find a more detailed description about the materials in our collection S4D Tools for your Practice/Teaching and Learning Materials.

Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is an essential part of any S4D programme and all activities on the ground. The M&E tools below have been developed in cooperation with the German Sport University Cologne (DSHS). They were applied in different working contexts in Indonesia. If you are interested in M&E, this S4D Resource Toolkit offers you additional comprehensive information about M&E in the field of S4D and provides further hands-on M&E tools for your own practice.
