Abstract

Developing and empowering the community is inseparable from the programs run by both the private and government. In this research, the program under evaluation is related to women’s empowerment program named Female Heads of Household Empowerment Program (Indonesian, and henceforth, PEKKA) conducted by the government. The location under research was Padalarang District, Bandung Barat Regency. Padalarang District is a pilot project of the related institution for the sustainability of the future program. The evaluation involved needs analysis, input analysis, activity analysis, output analysis, outcome analysis, and external factor analysis. The research draws upon the theory of program by Stewart I. Donaldson, and the evaluation model used was Jokobet’s Logic Model. The research adopted qualitative approach with triangulation as data collection technique, namely observation, interview, and questionnaire. Data and information were collected from five respondents, consisting of: program manager, informant, student, and program administrator. The results of this research are expected to contribute to the policy makers in determining and conducting evaluation, including designing, implementing, analyzing, and interpreting the program. Thus, the fulfillment of the program’s goals can be found out and benchmarked for the improvement of future programs. The findings show that PEKKA supports women’s independence, but not all female heads of households in Padalarang District could participate in the program due to limitation of time and society’s stereotype of women as powerless beings.
