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.
Kepher Ogalo is a youth peer provider in Kisumu, Kenya, and is trained and supported by Simavi partner KMET. Orphaned at an early age, his motivation to work for youth SRHR was sparked by personal circumstances and family experiences. We talked to him about his work.
Our goal is to structurally improve the basic health of 10 million people by 2020.
Over this time we’ve built up an in-depth knowledge of what - and who - it takes to successfully implement WASH and SRHR programmes and how to keep producing positive and sustainable results.Meet us here
