United Nations approve Special Consultative Status for Savera NGO

Savera Society for Human Initiatives (SSHI) was recently granted special consultative status by the United Nations Economic and Social Council. This is a major achievement for an organization run entirely by Humanitarians.Saverians work hard in extremely adverse conditions with available resources.
The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) adopted the recommendation of the ECOSOC Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations to grant SSHI the designation at its July 24, 2018 coordination and management meeting.
The ECOSOC grants Special Consultative Status (hereafter: “SCS”) to NGOs whose programs are of direct relevance to the Aims and Objects of the United Nations. The SCS allows NGOs to attend UN conferences, designate UN representatives to all UN missions in the world, and circulate statements at ECOSOC and other UN meetings.

The SCS allows the SSHI to further fulfill its role as an international platform for youth, women, disadvantaged, poor and marginalized sections of the society to make their voices heard by decision makers. SSHI is looking forward to the challenge of making best use of the SCS in order to give young, creative, energetic, intellectual and humanist peoples’ views a more prominent place.

There are 3 levels of Consultative Status, General, Special and Roster. With an estimated 10 million NGOs in the world, less than 0.0005%, or approximately 5000 NGOs in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), and SSHI is privileged to be among them.
