Siiqqee Women’s Development Association (Siiqqee)

Siiqqee brings together marginalised women to train them in practical work skills and provide them with information on their rights.

Siiqqee was established in 1997 and is a not-for-profit organisation that works with women and children to enable them to control their own livelihoods and contribute to the development of their families and communities.

Organising women in self-help groups enables them to feel less isolated by poverty and HIV and AIDS. They can build their social networks and take action both individually and collectively against violence. Siiqqee is committed to ensuring that women are able to live their life with dignity and security, and are able to improve their social and economic well-being. They encourage women to be active, productive and respected members in their communities.
