Our work depends entirely on donations from supporters who share our concern for a safe Indonesia. We are supported by donors who contribute modest amounts every month. A majority of our funding came from individual donors as well as from Foundations and businesses. This diverse funding model allows us to be independent and represent a broad spectrum of Indonesians.


PAKAR partners with organizations that share our view that the way to improve Indonesian security is by tackling the problems related to terrorism and radicalism.

Their long-term commitments are essential to addressing key issues such as protecting children and youth from falling into the trap of radicalism/terrorism through anti radicalism/terrorism education, promoting peace and building community resilience to radicalism and terrorism.

Our partners include:

  • National Counter-terrorism Agency (BNPT)
  • Indonesian National Police (POLRI)
  • District Courts (Pengadilan Negeri)
  • The Directorate of Corrections (Dirjen LAPAS)
  • Terrorism Trial Monitoring and Reporting Service
  • The Wahid Foundation (WF)
  • Nahdlatul Ulama (NU)
    Society Against Radicalism and Violent Extremism (SeRVE) Indonesia
