Management of the Family Empowerment and Welfare Organization to Prevent Divorce in Cilacap Regency

Dyah Retna Puspita, Rin Rostikawati, Pawrtha Dharma


The organization Family Empowerment and Welfare (FEW, or known in Indonesia as PKK) is a social institution that receives significant and varied support from the Indonesian government due to its significant role in empowering families. It has a wide scope, reaching down to the Neighborhood Association/RT (the smallest village administrative level) and even Dasa Wisma (groups of ten families) levels. One regency in which FEW analysis is attractive is Cilacap Regency. Cilacap has the highest divorce rates in Central Java province, and there has been a degradation of family sustainability as a result. Therefore, this research aims to analyze the management of FEW in empowering families in this regency, especially in preventing divorce. This research applies a descriptive-qualitative approach, with FEW officials as its research target. Data were collected through interviews, discussions, and observations. This research shows that one cause of high divorce rates in this region is the limited function of this program and its activities, as social analysis has not been conducted as the basis for making plans. It is recommended that the social analysis strategy be implemented.
