Goal 3: SEED has been working to improve the health and wellbeing of people throughout southern Madagascar for twenty years. Our Community Health programme includes the national sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) project, Safidy, a menstrual hygiene management (MHM) pilot project, our rural WASH & CLTS collaboration with UNICEF Madagascar, and our COVID-19 response. Previous SEED projects targeting health include Votsira (maternal and child health capacity building), Mitao, and our clean water access projects Fatsaka and Tatirano. Goal 5: Gender equality is central to SEED's work. In our Community Health programme, Project Safidy works to deliver rights-based sexual and reproductive health education to young people across Madagascar, as well as other projects in maternal, reproductive and child healthcare. Women's empowerment is also at the core of our Sustainable Livelihoods programme, with Project Oratsimba training Women Marine Ambassadors, Project Mahampy supporting female mahampy weavers, female beekeepers in Renitantely and our newly-independent Women's Embroidery Cooperative, Stitch Sainte Luce. Goal 6: Our Water, Sanitation and Hygiene programme is essential in the Anosy region, where 97% do not have access to proper sanitation. In partnership with UNICEF Madagascar, SEED is supporting more than 190,000 people to improve their WASH knowledge, practices, and services. Previous water and sanitation projects have included a three year urban sanitation initiative in Fort Dauphin, well- building and maintenance, and rainwater harvesting via Project Tatirano, now an independent organisation and one of our implementing partners. Goal 14: Project Oratsimba has been working for several years to encourage community-based, sustainable lobster fishery management in three villages on the southeastern coast of Madagascar where lobster fishing is a core livelihood yet impacted by overfishing by both communities and by large fishing companies. Goal 15: SEED's Conservation Programme has as it's mission to conserve the biodiversity, and sustainably manage natural resources, of the Sainte Luce ecosystem in a way that engages and benefits local communities. To this end, we are planting trees to provide reforestation wildlife corridors in Project Ala, monitoring and supporting sustainable management of wetlands in Project Mahampy. Our Environmental Conservation Programme also includes extensive biodiversity research within the SEED Conservation Research Programme, chameleon and palms research, and community conservation efforts with Project Rufus, targeting Madagascar's threatened flying fox population.
