The country’s challenges

Every year in Bangladesh, thousands of children lose their mothers to complications related to pregnancy or childbirth.

To improve the situation, we train healthcare staff, inform pregnant women and facilitate access to healthcare for expectant mothers, mothers, and babies.

Access to quality education remains limited, especially in rural areas. From 2005 to 2016, we ran a number of projects there to provide schooling for children who had never been to school or had left too early.

What makes us different
  • In-depth local knowledge: our local team are natives of the country
  • Collaboration: we co-construct all our projects with our local partners in order to build their capacity over the long term
  • Community involvement: we encourage the local population to participate in identifying health problems and finding solutions
  • Leverage effect: we improve the health and education of thousands of women and children by training key people who will in turn train others and disseminate this knowledge on a large scale.

Asma, Pregnant woman in Bangladesh

It was my mother-in-law who told me to attend health awareness sessions for pregnant women. I learnt that it was important to attend antenatal care visits at community clinics and not to give birth at home, as this can be risky if there are complications during childbirth.

Improving maternal and child health

Our project helps improve access and quality of care for pregnant women, mothers, and babies.
