Simavi’s Senior Programme Officer Sara Ahrari has been selected to present a case study at the WEDC on the theme ‘Women and WASH’. Her presentation will reveal the findings of a Simavi study on gender and empowerment through WASH based on a case study in Bangladesh.
It is often assumed that the participation and representation of women in WASH committees will lead to their empowerment. In order to get a better insight into “How” participation in WASH committees can lead to the empowerment of women, Simavi (with support from the Gender and Water Alliance) conducted a study to get a better insight on “If”, “How” and “Why” women’s empowerment has taken place as a result of participation in the WASH committees and other WASH interventions in our programme in Bangladesh.
Sara Ahrari will present the results on Wednesday July 26 at the WEDC International Conference (Session C7: Room WPT003). If you would like to attend, or are interested in more information on the conference, please click here.
