We have a passion to raise up competent midwives, birth practitioners, and educators to work in the developing world!  Our focus is to train those who go to the field in order to teach those already in the field.  One of the greatest crisis facing our day is the mortality rate of mothers and babies throughout the world; if we can better educate, train and equip the local midwives we will see improved outcomes and increased life. It is our desire is to see women trained up, confident and competent in the natural process of pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period willing to spend their lives to see change effected in our generation.

Core Focus

Our encompassing objective is to impart understanding of the role families play in development. This is seen specifically in the context of mothers and babies as they have the greatest opportunity for positive changes leading to lower maternal and child death, advancements in nutrition within the entire family, and a large influence on the next generation. The aim will be to teach skills and appropriate technologies in order to reach these women effectively while training trainers to continue this work in communities across the developing world.
