Locations: where we work

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. They know the situation like no other.

We believe strong and meaningful partnerships are crucial to achieving our objectives. Simavi collaborates with local organisations that their communities and governments trust. They always have specific expertise in our focus fields – water, sanitation and hygiene, or sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Currently, we have more than 50 long-term partnerships with local organisations in 10 countries. Over the past years, we started to co-create programmes with our local partners. They play a key role in the design and implementation of our programmes and the evaluation. Our local partners are also our eyes and ears on the ground. Working closely with them helps us reach the most vulnerable women and girls.
