Session Overview
Virtual Visit - Simavi: Shifting Power to Women and Girls
Wednesday, 07/July/2021:
3:30pm - 4:30pm

Session Abstract

Join this virtual visit to engage in discussions about how INGOs need to change and what change can Simavi bring about. Simavi is a Dutch development organisation that exists since 1925. We are agile and adaptive. We co-create and work directly with our in-country partners, making us efficient in achieving a lasting change in the lives of women and girls. In terms of decolonising the aid sector, and shifting the power to the most affected populations, we realised that we - as an international NGO - should take responsibility, take a good look in the mirror, and recognise that we are part of the problem.

To bring about more just and effective development, Simavi is conscious about how to use its own power in support of women- and girl-led development. We might not be big enough to revolutionise the world, but surely, we want to attempt to make the world a better place. But how do we do that? How do we become more girl-led in our strategies, programmes and partnerships?
