Happy International Women’s Day from Safe Mothers, Safe Babies! Today we encourage you to reflect on all the women in your life that makes it what it is today. Without mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, and friends, our lives would be lonely! Thank you to all the special women who have helped us individually and as an organization!
Below are members of Kalalu Women’s Voice, the first Kalalu community-formed club exclusively for women to discuss reproductive health and undertake projects to improve it. In Uganda, International Women’s Day Celebration activities are just wrapping up. The festivities include song and dance performances, KAMEDE men’s club debate about “how many wives and children are the best number to have,” immunizations, malaria education, mosquito net distribution, and other health screenings. Check back in the next week for pictures of the event.
