Abstract

Women batik worker characteristics who live near poverty line, have difficulty meeting their needs limited access to skills development. Batik training, tools assistance and materials to colouring training still make them helpless. Batik training for them is a willingness to receive “wages” rather than knowledge gained, because batik has become a part of life. Colouring training for them is a mere “lie” because the recipe given is not effective recipe, they still must trial and error themselves. While tools and materials assistances are only temporary and not sustainable. Fund disbursement provided is full of conditions and ultimately causes dispute among fellow batik makers. Geographical and demographic conditions also marginalized them. This study effective to observe how the aid program provided for batik workers. The unit of analysis in this study was the batik workers in Gumelem, Banjarnegara. The method used is ethnography with the result that aids is ongoing if it matches what is needed and vice versa. The recommendation is that human resource development aids with an empowerment strategy is more needed than physical aids, the study is expected to sustain with community service.
