Most women plantation workers are illiterate. As a result, the ability to gain access to related resources that affect the needs of life is still limited. In addition, the illiteracy eradication program still emphasizes the introduction of letters and numbers. The level of empowerment of women plantation workers has not been a major concern. On the other hand there is a local wisdom that can be utilized in literacy education programs to improve the empowerment of women plantation workers. The data collected are primary and secondary, and then analyzed using qualitative and quantitative techniques (Mix method). Samples are taken by census and in-depth interviews and observations are involved. The instruments used are questionnaires and structured interview guidelines. The research findings include the existence of community institutions, social norms that are locality and potential natural resources that are likely to be developed into learning groups and learning materials as a learning resource in functional literacy education programs to empower women plantation workers, thus becoming a community planner.
