Today, March 15 2017, marks the sixth year of the conflict in Syria.
This conflict has resulted in the largest humanitarian and refugee crisis of our time. The numbers are massive: almost 50% of the entire Syrian population are uprooted from their homes; five million have fled the country since 2011 and over six million are displaced inside trying, to find ways to adapt and survive as the war enters its seventh year.
Introduction Hivos invites you to send a quote and brief proposal for an assignment to develop a project-related communication strategy and set the first steps in realizing it, resulting in a number of deliverables within three months time.
Behar Ali is a woman with a mission. As a young woman, she lived through the infamous poison gas attack on Halabja in the late eighties in Iraq. When Saddam Hussein started another campaign of violence against the Kurds in the mid-nineties, Behar fled to the Netherlands where she specialised in women's rights. After the fall of Saddam, she returned to northern Iraq to help rebuild her country.
Hivos believes that all women and girls should have control over their lives and be able to actively participate in social, political and economic spheres, so we work tirelessly with various human rights instruments in support of communities’ and countries’ efforts towards gender equality.
The Bridges project (formerly known as Shelter Me) is a unique initiative in the Gulf region, in which Migrant-Rights.org and Hivos collaborate to improve the employment relationship between employers and their domestic workers.
