Empower communities 

Wandikweza approaches community empowerment in two ways – Village Health Committees (VHC) for health education and and Community Health Workers. The VHC is a community monitoring system that generates data on the maternal and child health activities and changes in the community.

We connecte communities to health facilities to improve emergency care.  Wandikweza establishes a two-way facility-community referral system ensuring that clients have access to and receive needed clinical health services as well as follow-up support for health and other urgent wrap around care and support.
