THE CIRCLE OF INEQUALITY
Inequality means inequal distribution of power, resources and opportunity.
It means abundance for few and poverty for many.
It means the poor remains poor and powerless.
It means millions of people deprived of their basic human rights: water, health and education.
FIGHTING INEQUALITY AND DISCRIMINATION. FIGHTING FOR WOMEN.
Inequality and discrimination that have the face of a woman everywhere in the world.
Gender-based violence remains one of the most common human rights abuses in the world. In many countries, women are severely penalized in access to services such as water, health and education; they are fully responsible for caring for their family and children, and are forced to accept unpaid, low wage jobs. Patriarchy and other forms of oppression support discriminatory power relationships leading to exclusion, and exploitation.
FIGHTING INEQUALITY AND DISCRIMINATION. ACCESS TO WATER MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.
The link between access to water and the promotion of gender equality is directly proportional.
In the Southern countries of the world the task of procuring the water needed to drink, wash and water crops or water livestock lies mainly on women, depriving women of the time they need to secure an education or to engage in a satisfying and remunerative profession. Clean water and sanitation are crucial in the fight against Coronavirus, especially in overcrowded contexts as refugee camps or slums.
FIGHTING INEQUALITY AND DISCRIMINATION. KUTUPALONG REFUGEE CAMP
One of the most difficult and challenging situations is undoubtedly Kutupalong, the the world’s largest refugee camp and one of the 34 camps in Cox Bazar, Bangladesh, which are home to some one million Rohingya refugees who have fled Myanmar because of discrimination and violence. Here, as in so many other parts of the world, we work to guarantee access to sanitation and drinking water, increasing the delivery of soap, detergents, disinfectants and clean water, installing latrines and enlightened premises so that women can use them safely, and drinking fountains in several parts of the camps, so that they can get there without walking long distances on foot.
