From July 1 until August 31, generous donors will match your contributions for MPA’s SAFE WOMAN PROGRAM up to $50,000. Microfinancing changes lives, changes families, and changes communities. We strive to offer a hand up from poverty to possibility through microfinancing in the form of capacity-building maternal health projects such as those in the Safe Woman Program. With your help, women like Winnie not only have new hope, they are empowered to lead their communities to new heights.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to offering a hand up from poverty to possibility for families in Africa. MPA is excited to announce an opportunity for you to double your impact with our 2020 Challenge Match!
Did you know that having a baby in Uganda is 21 times more deadly than having a baby in North America? We at MicroFinancing Partners in Africa (MPA) will not accept that this is how things have to be.
MPA’s Safe Woman program gives a hand up to pregnant women and to women who have endured an obstetric fistula (post-fistula women) who are struggling to rise out of poverty in rural Uganda.
For pregnant women:
- Midwife ultrasound training to detect high risk obstetric conditions in pregnant women
- Village health center microfinancing projects to provide mothers with an income to pay for their antenatal care and delivery
For post-fistula women:
- Piglet Project living loans
- Safe Woman Alternative Project (SWAP) loans
In recognition of 2020 as the Year of the Midwife, we invite you to rise to the challenge!
Here is where we need YOUR help!
