Please tell us more about how these partnerships are critical to the success of your innovation.
MADRE partners with community-based women's organizations that share our vision of a world where all people enjoy the full range of human rights. MADRE works with our sister organizations to meet urgent needs in their communities and enhance women's capacity to create positive social change.
Based on the priorities of our sister organizations, MADRE offers women capacity-building and leadership development; strengthens progressive community-based institutions; and facilitates alliances and dialogue among social movements.
MADRE believes that community-based organizations are best situated to identify and meet the needs of the women and families they serve because they have a first-hand understanding of local conditions. Unfortunately, small, locally based groups often lack the resources, expertise and organizational support needed to implement and develop effective programs.
By working in partnership with MADRE, our sister organizations are able to build programs based on their own initiatives and perspectives while benefiting from the resources, training and technical support that a leading international women's human rights organization can provide.
What are the three most important actions needed to grow your initiative or organization?
In order to grow the Safe Birth Project, MADRE will need to assist Midwives for Peace in increasing its base of support, creating stronger alliances with local and international NGOs and increasing the number of midwives providing reproductive health services, while also ensuring that midwives receive fair pay and have good working conditions.
