Going for Gold, our women empowerment programme that aims at working towards women living in and around artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mines in Ghana and Tanzania, has been launched in Accra. The partnership programme, which consists of Simavi, Solidaridad and Healthy Entrepreneurs, in collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
On World Toilet Day Simavi reflects on the fact that 1 in 3 people still do not have access to a toilet. And that more than 2,000 children still die every day as a consequence. Yet this problem is easily prevented. With the #doormijnbril campaign Simavi asks attention for this unseen tragedy.
On November 7 the national network Girls not Brides Netherlands was launched. Girls Not Brides the Netherlands was founded by thirteen Dutch organisations, including Simavi, which in turn work with dozens of partner organisations across Africa and Asia
Our goal is to structurally improve the basic health of 10 million people by 2020.
