Safeworld Field Partners

Throughout the world there are thousands of small organisations working on the ground in their regions, helping people to develop sustainable livelihoods.

These organisations and groups seldom receive publicity and often struggle to connect with potential donors. To help with this, Safe World partners with grassroots organisations and groups working with women and children.

We help our Field Partners by highlighting their work, and encouraging public support for individual grassroot projects.

Asha Leresh

Asha’s luck came when Samuel Siriria Leadismo, the Director of Pastoralist Child Foundation and his team visited her village, creating awareness about female genital mutilation (FGM) and sexual reproductive health....

Handwashing

COFAPRI organised handwashing sessions for school children and mothers in rural villages, with the aid of educational DVDs kindly supplied by Thare Machi Education. The word has begun to spread as neighbours are now prompting each other to wash their hands.

Safe Spaces

Increased security helps women become self-reliant and less financially dependent on their husbands. This improves the situation for the whole family and also means the women are less vulnerable to abuse.

Towards womens empowerment

It remains very important within communities for men and boys to be educated regarding the rights of women and girls, including their proper, fair and respectful treatment. When the women and girls become empowered, it is the whole community that benefits.

The first edition of the Women for a Change Magazine is now available.

In most parts of our society, the word “Feminism” still remains a bitter pill for so many people to swallow, however, to Wfac’s college SRHR Peer educators, the ‘F’ word is about change, empowerment of all and transforming lives.
