SNV supports women that press for progress
On International Women’s Day, our staff in many countries pressed for progress. Meet them via our picture story below. But celebrations are just a landmark. The real work happens day by day, latrine by latrine, marketplace by marketplace, until the last mile is covered. This newsletter shows you how women play an essential role to end poverty. SNV focuses on economic progress for women, starting with enhancing women's voice in the household. Meet Zainab, who is turning biogas slurry into solid money. And Philomena, who became a model dairy farmer. Visit households led by single females, now with proper latrines. And factory women in Dhaka, finally getting access to proper healthcare. SNV supports all these women to improve their lives. Read more: 

"Women are natural leaders and their leadership is not limited to the household"

Zainab believes all women are leaders and shows how biogas can contribute to their empowerment. Together with other women, she formed a savings and cooperative society with biogas loans as their flagship product. Meet Zainab the biogas ambassador! 

Enlightening the migration debate

The world is facing the biggest refugee crisis since the second world war and an unprecedented 65.6 million people around the world have been forced from their homes. Globally, the largest portion of refugees are hosted in developing countries already struggling to overcome poverty themselves. Provision of energy for displaced persons must become sustainable. Read our expert’s opinion.
