Women's Health Innovation Program
Beautiful, comprehensive pregnancy guides for our pilot countries.
Group education programs so expecting women (and the families that love them) can sit together and read, learn and discuss together.
Training for local NGOs so they can provide books, group support and respectful, evidence based pregnancy and literacy support.
We are a proud partner of the
State Department Office of Global Women's Issues
The program pilots are in Bangladesh
An investment in women’s education during pregnancy and early parenthood more than doubles the return for herself, her children, and her nation.
“Illiteracy keeps women marginalized and
constitutes a foremost obstacle to reducing extreme
poverty in a technology-driven world. Women’s literacy improves livelihoods, leads to better child and maternal health, and favors girls’ access to education…In short, newly literate women have a positive ripple effect on all development indicators."”
-Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO
Developing countries that have a higher female literacy rate have a lower infant mortality rate .
