This project is designed to improve maternal health in rural Ugandan communities. Safe Mum is community-driven approach designed as a health fellowship program that recruits outstanding midwifery graduates, to serve in underserved and susceptible to high maternal and child mortality communities. Safe Mum fellows work hand in hand with the communities, Village Health Teams, Health Centres and Referral Hospitals in the communities they are placed to improve the overall communities’ maternal health situation. During their placement, the fellows work in areas of providing home antenatal & postnatal services, nutrition and breastfeeding awareness, and referrals. Beyond this, the fellows are also mentors and role models to inspire men and husbands to be involved in matters of their wives and babies well-being.


Young Girl Changemaker

Uganda has the youngest population of any country in the world. Within this context, young women and girls are the most overlooked members of this society. Our solution is the Young Girl Changemaker, a program that creates opportunities for young girls to develop their potential in leadership in their communities, rewrite their personal tragic stories and those of their communities through skills development, identification of community needs, and building tangible solutions to address these needs.

Vocational Education

Uganda’s education system is theory-based, focused on rote memorization and examinations. This causes youth to graduate ill-equipped for life after school, joining the huge number of unemployed youth. Young women experience youth unemployment more frequently and severely than their male counterparts, and this financial insecurity greatly increases their vulnerability. We believe in changing this trend by creating a valuable and skills-based education. Our model includes training for young women in practical skills such as agripreneurship, tailoring and handicrafts, bakery, and other skills which they can use to solve the challenges they face in real life.
