Midwives save lives

Mission 21 supports a midwifery school that enables young women to train as midwives for two and a half years. In addition to theory and practice in midwifery, the young women also receive instruction in general education subjects. 

At the school, women from different ethnic groups live and learn together. This contributes to peace and reconciliation work, which is an important part of the education. Belonging to different ethnic groups played an essential role in the civil war, which is why building trust with each other is important. This is especially true in view of the fact that the midwives advise expectant mothers on very intimate matters.

Despite the war, 80 women have already successfully completed midwifery school and are now working all over the country. Each of them attends up to 250 births per year. Help train midwives and save lives.
