The film – directed by Jerry de Mars - depicts a reality of a world that for us seems fictional. Confronted by the poverty and gender-inequality that haunt our golden jewellery, viewers are persuaded to ask the same questions about the origin of our gold as that we ask about our coffee and chocolate.
The Special Rapporteur is partnering with various organisations to promote the human rights to water and sanitation (HRWS), including Simavi. In March, the theme in focus is “gender equality in the human rights to water and sanitation”, a theme that particularly fits with the work Simavi has been conducting over many years now and with our human rights-based approach.
To achieve a healthy life for all we work together to ensure that disadvantaged people in low- and middle-income countries practice healthy behaviours based on their own free and informed decisions.
Over this time, we have acquired an extensive body of knowledge on how to successfully develop and implement programmes to improve people’s health and rights – and we are still learning every day.Meet us here
