Academy for Conscious Change

Targeting the most marginalized and under-resourced women in post-conflict societies, Global Grassroot's Academy for Conscious Change serves as an incubator of grassroots civil society projects designed to address critical issues facing women. The Academy for Conscious Change recognizes these women, most of whom are survivors of sexual assault and genocide, as potential change agents and those best suited to identify, diagnose, and solve for the social issues that compromise the health, education, opportunities, and rights of women and girls in their communities.

Primary Maternal health care

le secteur de la société civile

Primary maternal health care is an innovated project portrayed as an after thought, which should be run by charities or NGOs out of makeshift premises with concerned volunteers struggling to provide rudimentary care.

The project primary maternal care should have the potential to deliver the best health outcomes to the largest number of poor women in the rural at the lowest cost. as in my country,with poor infrastructure, women still trek for more than 60km to get to a hospital. If adapted the plan can help the country in achieving the MDG Goal 4, 5 and 6
