2015 Milestones: March

A strong village means a safe forest

Tragically, a third of all the families in our Asháninka partnership have seen a child die before the age of five. In March we began working with the women in our partner villages, finding out some of the challenges mothers face, and training them to become maternal health promoters for the wider community.

One of the things we realised straight away was that most of the biggest challenges mothers and new babies face are down to malnutrition. So in 2016 we’re going to be focussing on improving nutrition throughout all our partnerships across the globe.
