Since 2022, in Lumbini province, Enfants du Monde and Green Tara Nepal have been cooperating to boost the health of disadvantaged pregnant women, new mothers and their newborns. The two NGOs are now reviewing the possibility of expanding their collaboration to improve the sexual and reproductive health of adolescents.
High ended maternal health services
The project, which is currently led by Green Tara Nepal and supported by Enfants du Monde helps improve the quality of maternal and neonatal care while raising women’s awareness on the importance of care before and after birth. It has already helped strengthen existing health services and the aim is now to extend it to as many health centers as possible in three districts of Lumbini province.
Sexual education for teenagers
In Nepal, teenagers lack essential information on sexual and reproductive health. Young girls sometimes experience discrimination during their periods, while unwanted pregnancies, early marriage and sexual violence remain major concerns. Our goal is to provide quality information and services to improve the well-being and sexual and reproductive health of young people.
Constanze Bunzemeier, Nepal Program Manager
During my visit to Nepal in September, I had the opportunity to speak with the National Health Training Center (NHTC) and local organizations to explore new funding and partnership opportunities. I hope that these discussions will soon allow us to put in place a broader program to improve the health of mothers and newborns in Nepal. I am also looking forward to seeing if we can launch the sex education program for teenagers.
My donation makes a difference
I am financing the continuous training of a volunteer health worker in Nepal to enable her to raise awareness among pregnant women and their families.
I help provide medical equipment to a health center in Nepal to provide quality care to pregnant women and their newborns.
I offer continuous education for a nurse in Nepal to enable them to provide respectful care to pregnant women and their newborns.
