On December 20th, CleanBirth.org and our partner OVA will meet with the 16 nurses we have trained to date. We will check data, give a 6 month supply of birth kits and conduct a mini-training on educating Village Volunteers.
On December 21st, our 2nd Village Volunteers training will take place at Buengkharm Clinic: 3 nurses will train 11 Volunteers.
Not only will these Village Volunteers return home with knowledge about how to make birth safer, they will bring AYZH Clean Birth Kits to pregnant women in their village.
With the generous help of Carol Perks of Save the Children in northern Laos, we have developed a picture tool to track the use of the kits. No reading required!
Once we see that the Volunteers can distribute and track the kits, we will be able to scale up the Village Volunteer program. Our goal: to get kits and education into every village in Salavan Province to make birth safer.
