Continuing to Save Women & Children in Nigeria

By Afam Onyema | Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Our network of five solar-powered maternal and family centers in southeast Nigeria remain extremely busy as they serve hundreds of poor and vulnerable women and children every day, and we are excited to open a 6th clinic by April of this year!  

We focus on maternal healthcare, safe delivery of healthy babies, infant and child vaccinations, pharmacy utilization, and the training of young nurses, midwives and traditional birth attendants.  We also provide crucial primary care services for boys and primary and preventative care services for men.

As we have done since 2014, we continue to screen and treat hundreds of vulnerable pregnant women for anemia every month, with the latest model of Pronto screening devices put into the field last year. We also continue to provide safe delivery "mama kits" to over two dozen rural clinics in Nigeria.

We also recently received a grant from the British technology company Smiths Group to provide advanced, hands-on STEM education to girls and online STEM lesson accessible thousands of impoverished girls and boys in Nigeria.
