Founder's Story

After losing my childhood friend/sister-in-law (Dorcas Edeani) at childbirth due to complications of pregnancy and Delivery, it was one of my saddest moments in life. It was even more painful knowing that this was very preventable.

Since then, I have dedicated myself to take action to put an end to maternal and child deaths or at least reduce them drastically. My in-law's death put a face behind every maternal and child health statistics I have seen and made me realize that these are not just numbers, they are real people and they are never coming back.


According to the United Nations, Nigeria is now one of the most dangerous countries in the world to give birth. The country alone accounts for 19% of all maternal and child deaths on the planet. UNICEF states that “Every single day, Nigeria loses about 2,300 children under five and 145 women of childbearing age due to complication of pregnancy and delivery. And according to the W.H.O Vaccine-preventable diseases remain the most common cause of childhood mortality with an estimated three million deaths each year in Nigeria alone. Because of all these, Nigeria is now the second largest contributor to the under–five and maternal mortality rate in the world.”

From our research, 85% of this mortality occurs in rural under-served communities because of THREE Major reasons:

  • The healthcare information gap which makes Nigerian women vulnerable to superstitions and un-healthy practices during childbirth
  • The unhealthy child-delivery practices by untrained community care-givers in these vulnerable communities.
  • The Lack of Child Vaccination related disease for children between the ages of 0-5.

The problems we're trying
to solve

  • We are addressing the various unhealthy child-delivery practices in underserved communities by untrained Traditional Birth Attendants and other Local Community Care Givers.

  • We are bridging the basic health care information gap in under-served communities, making naïve women vulnerable to superstitions and fables regarding pregnancy and child birth.

  • We are addressing the devastating impact of lack of vaccination preventable childhood related diseases in under-5 children. According to W.H.O Vaccine-preventable diseases remain the most common cause of childhood mortality with an estimated three million deaths each year in Nigeria alone
