The Collaboration for Equal Opportunity & Citizenship Education (SKB) is advocating for equal opportunities for all children. But how can we accelerate this fight and make it even more effective? During the Week of Equal Opportunities (November 2023), they are organizing an event that is not about young people but instead focuses on putting young people at the center. Cirrus is one of the funds supporting this initiative.

Cirrus supports the AVA foundation. This is a one-time suport but we believe that is is necessary. Even in the Netherlands women-rights are under pressure! We support AVA because:
-We think we have to listen more closely to what women really want on abortion and contraception;
-We think we have to do more survey on the experience of abortion and contraception;
-We think there is to less progression on new ways of birth control (for women and for men);
-We believe there should be more freedom of choice;
-We worry about the conservative sound wearing around in the Netherlands
