Increasing Knowledge Through Community Workshops
Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Donor,
First and foremost, thank you! Your donations will continue to empower individuals and communities across Bauchi State, Nigeria, giving them the opportunity to form connections and address local issues using community resources. Donors’ contributions have allowed Leadership Initiatives and their students to carry out their mission of improving lives in Bauchi through supporting health initiatives and working to develop innovative solutions to problems facing the Nagari Medical Clinic and Maternity Ward. Hazel, Betsaida, Michaelle, Sophia, Kayli, Manmeet, Anika, and Krrisha have been engaged in months of cultural immersion and have been building connections with community leaders in Nigeria to address imperative health issues that our communities in northern Nigeria are facing.
Team PH22159 has worked throughout the last seven months to create and develop a deep understanding of how postpartum depression impacts the Guru community.
Hazel, Betsaida, Michaelle, Sophia, Kayli, Manmeet, Anika, and Krrisha have been working with Rabiu Garba, a project coordinator in the field in the Guru community. Through skype calls, the team has learned about the obstacles facing individuals that are dealing with postpartum depression. In January, Team PH22159 worked hard to create a public health proposal to address postpartum depression in the Guru community. Your support of team PH22159 interns and their hard work is crucial to the success of each team and solution.
For team PH22159’s final intervention, Hazel, Betsaida, Michaelle, Sophia, Kayli, Manmeet, Anika, and Krrisha are preparing a community workshop to build individual and community capacity to address postpartum depression. By increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support, and advocacy, Hazel, Betsaida, Michaelle, Sophia, Kayli, Manmeet, Anika, and Krrisha hope to prevent and lower the prevalence of postpartum depression in the Guru community.
As a donor to this project, we are thankful for your support as we attempt to transform lives. Please consider participating in the upcoming Little by Little campaign GlobalGiving is hosting from April 3rd - April 7th, 2023.
