Right for her.

Clean water and a toilet: nobody can do without it. Safe drinking water is a human right. But access to safe water, toilets and hygiene is still far from self-evident. Especially for women and girls.

Climate change is putting further pressure on the rights, health and equality of women and girls.

We work with our partners on programmes in Africa and Asia to ensure that women and girls have access to water, a toilet and equal treatment.


Fighting for equality

Women and girls are disproportionately affected by the lack of water and toilet facilities.

The climate crisis is a water crisis

Women and girls did not cause the climate crisis but do have to face the consequences. Simavi works on climate resilience and wants to empower women and girls.

More power for women

Women and girls have the knowledge and experience necessary for sustainable solutions to water and sanitation problems. But this requires that women have a seat at the table.

Menstruation is perfectly normal

Menstruation is still a major cause of unequal opportunities worldwide. Simavi works on making it possible for people who menstruate to manage their period with dignity and without stigma.

Toilets for a healthy life

Access to sanitation is a human right. Yet almost half of the world's population does not have access to a safe and private toilet.
