RI's North Darfur Women Centers are a Success!

RI has seen much success in its activities in North Darfur over the last months. In 2008, RI was able to fulfill one if its strategic goals by completing the construction of two women’s center in Kabkabiya, North Darfur. These RI-supported centers now serve as a safe space for women and girls in the region.

The newly constructed women’s center was put to use almost immediately as RI’s women’s development team, in coordination with local partner, provided health training for local women which included promotion of safe motherhood skills and pre- and post-natal visits with health providers, sensitization on the value of routine immunization for pregnant women and children under 5, promotion of basic hygiene, and STI prevention. Nutrition education was also included, which promoted breastfeeding, best-use of food rations, and tips for recognizing child malnutrition and for preparing high-nutrient meals to prevent loss of breast milk.
