Saving lives with OmwanaThrive
Every 16 minutes a Ugandan baby dies before they reach 28 days of life. This shocking fact is primarily due to the severe lack of healthcare knowledge that exists in rural populations. With the onset of COVID19, more and more young girls are getting pregnant, are completely unprepared for motherhood and are adding to the number of stillborns, preterm births and neonatal deaths
OmwanaThrive application program was developed by our working partner, Santa Clara University’s Frugal Innovation Labs, specifically to address the high rate of neonatal deaths. The program operates on an Android tablet, features key messages about baby care and does not require internet access.
Since our introduction to OmwanaThrive, hundreds of mothers have learned how to feed and care for their infants, while lives are being saved.
Our health program is comprehensive as we explain about the importance of diet and nutrition as a means to keep both mom and baby healthy.
