A JAMBOREE! A JAMBOREE!!
The women in the picture below are hosting a Jamboree for all the women we've trained. In March, almost 200 women will congregate in Pellie, Sierra Leone to celebrate the difference they are making in their communities.
They plan to have demonstrations of their skills, share songs and dances they use to teach community women, and enjoy meeting the new graduates of our training.
You can help - Just $10 makes it possible for a woman to attend, houses her, and feeds her. Please send us your picture, and we'll post it at the venue!

MOMS is a humanitarian, non-profit agency whose mission is to improve maternal and infant health in the poorest areas of the world.
MOMS' teams travel to Sierra Leone to build capacity among the women in the rural areas. We teach the traditional birth attendants three things:
- To be the bridge between the community and the clinic system
- To make changes to solve women's health problems
- To provide evidence-based maternity care.
