Water by Women
As you may have noticed, we started Artivist last summer, in collaboration with Niels van Weerdenburg. A platform that combines art with the SDG goals. For goal 6 - clean drinking water & sanitation for everyone - art inspired by this subject has recently been sold. Partly thanks to the sale of various works of art, we are proud to announce that €15,000 has been donated to the Water by Women project in Nepal!
This project, initiated by Simavi, has a dual approach: achieving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and economic empowerment of women. In Nepal they call the project Udhyami, which means 'entrepreneur' in Nepali and that is exactly what the program is about: encouraging women to become entrepreneurs and thus earn money for the well-being of their families.
