Karen en Kidus wandelen voor MamaWise!

Het is alweer enige tijd geleden dat wij een update over onze wandelaars Karen en Kidus hebben geplaatst. Dit betekent niet dat zij hebben stilgezeten, sterker nog: de laatste kilometers komen al in zicht!
Onderweg hebben zelfs versterking gekregen van Marieke, Julia, Teun en Jakob die een aantal kilometers mee lopen. Lees hier de wandelverslagen en bekijk de mooie foto’s van de afgelopen etappes.

Geweldig toppers, ga zo door!

Thank you mr. Zak!

To get the best possible feedback on our program, mr. Zak has conducted focus group discussions with our MamaWise participants. He has done a wonderful job! Thank you mr. Zak, we’re looking forward to be working with you in the near future again!

Fist BabyBoxes are distributed!

The first BabyBoxes have been handed out to ‘our’ Wise Mama’s at Central Hospital! Many thanks to our donors who made this possible and also many thanks to Nadia who has been very busy with putting them together!

Kidus & Karen lopen Pieterpad voor MamaWise!

Het Pieterpad van bijna 500 km lopen is al een hele prestatie op zich, maar helemaal als je 10 jaar bent! Kidus en zijn moeder Karen hebben vorige week een start gemaakt met het Pieterpad. En zij lopen dit ook nog eens voor MamaWise. Wat een eer!!
Wil jij Kidus & Karen ook aanmoedigen door ze te sponsoren? Dat kan per etappe, een aantal etappes of een ander mooi bedrag! Klik hier voor uitleg en sponsormogelijkheden.


Wil je weten hoe het hen de eerste 2 etappes is vergaan? Klik hier voor hun verslag van etappe 1 en hier voor etappe 2.

Wij wensen Kidus en Karen super veel succes!!

Cooking demonstration

Many thanks to nutritionist Mariam Bogobire who volunteered her time and knowledge to MamaWise. We’re super super grateful!
And thank you Nadia for facilitating the session and the beautiful pictures!

Two wonderful meetings

Last weeks we have had  2 effective and positive meetings.
Our first meeting was with our advisory board; Dr. Gumanga, Dr. Femke and Madam Abiba were present. We have discussed the progress of MamaWise, the BabyBox and the first training sessions.

The second meeting took place with our two committed midwives, who will be providing the MamaWise training sessions. Both are very experienced and were able to provide a lot of feedback!

We can’t wait to get started with our fist training session!
