Applications to join our team have closed but you can support our team below:
Train midwives. Midwives save lives, especially mothers during childbirth. You can help us train more midwives, each of whom can provide care to up to 500 women in one year.
Improve health facilities. We can provide a health facility with a lasting water supply, more beds and medical supplies for health workers, so women can safely and comfortably give birth
Expand access to family planning services. When women have access to family planning services, their future, and their families' futures, are limitless.
