Advocacy on Human Rights Issues

Speaking Engagements

Kim Simplis Barrow’s tireless advocacy on human rights issues and her successful execution of ambitious projects have led to international recognition. As a result, she has been invited to join powerful leaders and other influential persons from around the world at various global sessions to share her experiences and continue to advocate for vulnerable populations.


In Belize, she is highly sought after to endorse or speak at events. Mrs. Simplis Barrow has capitalized on these key opportunities to continuing educating on key human rights issues that are the core of her work and to give a voice to the voiceless.

Speaking at forums and conferences locally and internationally, her remarks are always aimed at empowering women and children and inspiring duty-bearers to uphold their rights.
