Here at HOPE we get excited when different projects come together to pursue greater outcomes for our mission. The women who have been trained as birth attendants thus far are incorporated in another project of ours, providing delivery and safe pregnancy to rural women in our communities. Our birth attendants are instrumental in this project for a few reasons. One, in addition to our Mothers' Clubs, they are essential in recruiting expectant women in need to the project; two, they are active in the antenatal care services. Not only are they providing the actual services and counseling groups of women at a time to educate them on the importance of ANC, they are calling these women to remind them of their appointments, provide information and answer any questions they may have. Existing as a wealth of information is important in this area where reproductive health is not openly discussed, and therefore women stay in the dark about crucial steps they should be taking to protect themselves and their babies. We are ecstatic to see these attendants utilize their training and education to make huge differences in the lives of their communities.
Project reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
