This project is to raise the final funding needed to print 600 copies of Hesperian's "Where There Is No Doctor" in Bunyore. Kabala Women Centre (KWC) translated this book because it covers health topics affecting the Bunyore area-nutrition, vaccinations, childbirth & family planning. KWC is a local NGO with a mission of bringing health education and materials to Bunyore communities. Translation work is done & we need your help to get this book into the hands of villagers.
The Bunyore region of Kenya is remote from medical services and villagers rely on village health workers for assistance and information, especially in emergencies. Village health workers and people in remote areas in general need current health information written in their local language to help themselves with treatment and prevention of disease.
Having Hesperian's "Where There is No Doctor" in Bunyore will allow villagers to learn good health practices for disease prevention and treatment. The book will be mainly used by village health workers, who provide most of the care in these villages. However, because Hesperian books are written for low literacy readers, other community members can also use the book to improve their daily lives.
Improved health for villagers in the Bunyore region through education and supporting self-sufficiency.
