Capacity Building

We extensively train Local Birth Attendants to advance their knowledge and skills on maternal issues.We advocate that the local birth attendants should not be ignored, since in their hands are the lives of these mothers who have little or no other choice than to access them during child birth.

Also, the knowledge a local birth attendant has will determines whether these pregnant mothers will live or die during child delivery; remembering that once a local birth attendant is trained, she/he becomes a person with some knowledge, who also has equipment to make a clean and safe delivery.

We also train and enhance the knowledge of other birth attendants specifically on the knowledge of ultrasound scanning, and the importance of carrying out deliveries on a clean surface, as it is hard to see clean surfaces in these rural communities.
