Promote a healthy development for the child
It is not always easy to know how to take care of a child. In order to contribute to the improvement of the well-being of children from 0 to 5 years old in the countries where we operate/in Burkina Faso, we increase parents and families’ awareness of child development so that they can adapt their behavior to their needs.
Being well informed…
…about the care to provide to a child, their learning mechanisms, safety gestures, nutrition, necessary health care and the importance of playing are key aspects for their well-being. We train community health workers who will then raise awareness among young parents about the importance of communication and playing in the cognitive development of their child.
We also develop tools so that parents and adults in the countries where we operate have available resources to find out about the needs of young children and promote their best development. The mobile application “My child is growing up” is innovative in this area: adults can monitor the child’s development and learn what care to give them and at what age. It is available in native languages and with images adapted to the context of the country; the application turns out to be always relevant for those who use it, in contexts where individuals do not always have access to the essential information necessary for the good care of a child.
My donation makes a difference
I fund a nutrition kit for 6 teachers in Madagascar so they can put in place activities in class with their students.
I enable 175 pregnant women in Bangladesh to be made aware of their pregnancy and the dangers in the newborn.
I enable the continuous training for a nurse in Nepal, so s/he can provide respectful care to pregnant women and their newborns.
