Each mother that attends a Materna Kits Community Delivery receives a manual breast pump and other reusable items. Community leaders, health workers, clinic owners, and medical staff learn about important maternal and infant health topics alongside the mothers. We provide education on infant nutrition, maternal health and mental health, lactation consulting, breast pump usage, and first aid preparedness. We also present research to demystify many common, outdated ideologies that are still being passed on through generations in low income communities in Latin America.
We are proud to sponsor the education of young girls who are from at risk, extremely low income communities. Our students’ tuition is paid for in its entirety by their individual sponsors. Each young woman is allowed to choose the degree she wants to pursue.
Our current young scholars are pursuing the fields of Business Administration, Education, English Language, and Psychology. They are each required to give back in their communities, specifically by taking on the initiative to encourage young girls to pursue an education.
For many of the mothers that we meet, we are the first and only resource that they are
aware of when they receive heartbreaking medical diagnoses, because of our active role
in many rural communities.
-We create connections for the families with free resources + willing medical staff
-We provide financial aid for transportation and food supply for the families while they
are required to travel to and from hospital visits by pairing them with an individual sponsor
-We fundraise for items and tools that will improve their quality of life (i.e., large strollers for children with Cerebral Palsy)
