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.
MPA’s Safe Woman Program offers a hand up through four projects
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! From July 1 until August 31, generous donors will match your contributions for MPA’s small loan programs up to $50,000. Microfinancing changes lives, changes families, and changes communities. With your help, MPA will help supply small loans through our partners to help people help themselves out of poverty.
