MATERNAL HEALTH EDUCATION PROGRAM
In remote parts of Rwanda, pregnant mothers have little access to life saving prenatal education, putting unborn babies and their mothers at risk. Warning signs are missed and babies are lost.
For many women, the first time they see a medical professional is the day they go into labor, or once they have already lost their baby.
This has to change.
And we need your help.
Hands Producing Hope has partnered with four remote island villages on Lake Kivu to bring a comprehensive program into their local communities.
Through our on going monthly group classes we are training pregnant mothers in areas such as:
The importance of regular clinical check ups
Recognizing warning signs and ways to respond
What to expect during labor
Postpartum and infant care
Goals of the Maternal Health Education Program:
Ensure that all mothers have access to life saving prenatal education.
Lower infant and maternal death rates in rural Rwanda.
Empower moms with education and information to care for themselves and their babies.
WHAT THE WOMEN ARE SAYING:
This new program is already making a remarkable impact in the communities of Lake Kivu. However, we still have a lot of work to do.
So, how can you get involved?
An initiative like this one depends on passionate and devoted supporters like you. There are many ways to get involved—whether it be by becoming a monthly donor, or by simply buying a t-shirt, by spreading awareness in your communities or by becoming a business partner.

We are looking for monthly donors at any level to help us bring this program to over 400 pregnant women in the next year. Our monthly partners play an integral role in the sustainability of this program, and will receive exclusive quarterly updates on the program’s progress and impact!
We are looking for business owners with a heart for disadvantaged communities and maternal health education to join our Partners in Hope program. You can find out more about how to apply for this program HERE.
