We're on a mission to transform maternal and child health care delivery to reach every woman and newborn. You can join us. No matter how much you give, every dollar funds maternal and child health care projects in Malawi. 

Our work

Sustainable work is locally‑led

We partner with public health facilities where majority of underserved mothers and newborns receive care from, to address barriers that cause delay in seeking, reaching and receiving care through Proactive Doorstep Care, an affordable and scalable solution.

We work with women of childbearing age (15 - 49 years old) living in low-resource settings. Led by local people, our approach focuses on three key areas, working to tackle preventable maternal and child deaths and poverty by engaging communities, strengthening referral system and building clinical capacity. 

We focus on eliminating preventable maternal and newborn deaths by making sure women and newborns can access quality care at every stage -  before, during, and after pregnancy until the child is five years old. 

We respond to the “Three Delays” that contribute to high perinatal mortality rates by partnering with primary level public health facilities for scale.

We approach community engagement in two ways – Village Health Committees (VHC) for health education and livelihood strengthening 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 connect communities to health facilities to improve  emergency care.  We establish 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.

Our Golden Rule
