JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - The Indonesian government through Social Affairs Ministry and Home Affairs Ministry are identifying vulnerable populations in an effort to provide social protection programs for them. 

 

The vulnerable populations include the homeless and indigenous people who have yet formally registered and have no national identity document. 

"The citizens who have not received their civil rights in the form of identity document include the homeless and beggars in urban areas as well as the indigenous people in Indonesia's remote regions," Tribunnews.com quoted Social Affairs Minister Tri Rismaharini as saying on Thursday, March 11.

Social Affairs Ministry is collecting data on social assistance recipients to be integrated with the Integrated Social Welfare Data (DTKS). 

"Thank you for the support and good cooperation from the Directorate General of Population Administration of the Ministry of Home Affairs. Hopefully, this will also identify the vulnerable and indigenous people," Risma, as the minister is popularly known, said in a statement. 

Once they are formally registered, they are entitled to access the social protection programs such as the Family Hope Program (PKH), Non-Cash Food Assistance (BPNT), Cash Social Assistance (BST), and other government programs.

Risma also monitored how the data of Population Identification Number (NIK) and Electronic Identity Card (e-KTP) for the indigenous people of Jambi were gathered.
