Check out this short list of those who share their talents to make birth safer in Laos:
Kelley Khamphouxay works in Laos conducting training and working closely with our Lao Partner organization to improve monitoring and evaluation of our project. She is a committed advocate for women’s rights in development. She holds an MSc in Gender and Development and a BA in International Relations. A California native, she has lived and worked in Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Laos and Thailand for nearly two decades. She has provided analysis and training in project effectiveness, vulnerability reduction, and ethnic and gender equity for dozens of International NGOs, UN agencies across Southeast Asia and the Government of the Lao PDR. She is currently an apprentice midwife specializing in out-of-hospital birth and is dedicated to developing and promoting locally sourced solutions for safe motherhood. Fluent in both Lao and Thai languages, she lives in Vientiane, Laos with her husband and three children.
Dee Warren Harlow at the US Embassy in Vientiane, our liaison in Laos who has helped in so many ways. Coolest accomplishments: she got the US Ambassador in Laos to come to our Vientiane fundraiser and secured a $2000 Kirby Grant for us!!
Natalie Gracias, a medical student from Sydney, who led a nurses’ training in Salavan. Her self-funded trip to Salavan in December 2013 went a long way to improving our data collection processes.
Marla Katz, high school student, who has raised more than $2,000. Never under estimate the power of a young woman with a passionate drive to help others!
Ari Thibodeau, the official CleanBirth.org video producer. We couldn’t do crowd funding without this talented woman!
Marcella Kovac, who designs our print media, singlehandedly turned pictures into beautiful cards. Her continued pro bono support, means we spend the money we make from our cards not on design but on mothers and babies in Laos.
There are many tons more who have supported us during our annual Barn Fundraiser!
