VOICES FROM THE GRASSROOTS

Working through the Covid19 outbreak.
Snip of April 2020 newsletter for home page

Looking around at the impact of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) on ourselves, our work and the communities we work with, the reality is more than sobering. In the face of this crisis, governments across the region have left many of us completely exposed. Most women from the greater Horn of Africa region, have never enjoyed the benefits of quality, affordable healthcare, welfare, or safety net mechanisms, rather we struggle daily just to keep our heads above water under ruling regimes who couldn’t be bothered to throw us a rope.


OUR LATEST STATEMENT

SUDAN WOMEN CONVENING REPORT

Theme: "Nothing about us, without us"
For homepage - SWC

Today – on the first anniversary of the Sudan Women Protest, SIHA is thrilled to launch a report and video that captures the discourse and highlights culminating from 3 days of introspective and critical wiliness by the Sudan women’s movement to overcome decades of repression and charter a way forward on uniting for change across the different pre-existing divisions. The most potent outcome of the convening was the commitment by each and every woman present in the space to awaken an inclusive women’s movement.
