About us.

Simavi encourages girls and women to claim their right to equality and basic needs, resulting in a physically, mentally and socially healthier society for everyone.

Netherlands Simavi


Powerful women, healthy societies. We believe that strong women benefit the whole community. Therefore we strive to encourage women and girls to claim their right to equality and basic needs.


Our work is women-centred, rights-based and builds lasting change. In all our projects, we leave no one behind.


Simavi’s projects focus on two crucial factors in achieving well-being and health for all women and girls: water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).


Simavi works on improving the daily lives of women and girls in 10 African and Asian countries. In all our projects, we combine our experience and expertise together with local organisations.


Realising maximum impact through our work depends on our partnerships and collaborations with organisations, networks, institutions and partners. Without our partners, we can't achieve our mission.
