Education leads to more growth and less poverty. By collaborating with local organizations, SAIH supports long-term development work within higher education and training for younger people.
Our target groups are students and youth between 15 and 35 years, as well as academics and teachers within the education sector. We have a special focus on indigenous people, young women and LGBT youth.
SAIH collaborates with 40 organizations in 8 countries in Latin America, southern Africa and Asia. We support projects initiated and run by local organizations. It is important that these organizations promote equality, inclusion and diversity, and respect human rights and non-violence.
Our work includes:
- Facilitating for political participation among youth and strengthening student organizations.
- Working for young people's and indigenous peoples’ right to relevant and quality education
- Supporting continuing education for teachers
- Supporting informal training and capacity building in leadership skills
