THIS WILL REDUCE THE MORTALITY RATES AMONG THE JUVENILE DUE TO IGNORACE.  IT IS SAID FROM THE OLD  BOOK WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE PEOPLE PERIS AND MOST YOUNG MOTHERS LACK THE PARENTING KNOW-HOW

Who will benefit from this idea and where are they located?

THE CHILDREN AT 0- 5YRS. YOUNG MOTHERS, FATHERS, AND CARE GIVERS IN KARIADUDU, NAIROBI KENYA.

How could you test this idea in a quick and low-cost way right now?

HIRE A SPECIOUS VENUE INVITE A FEW MOTHERS OF ALMOST THE SAME AGE THROUGH DIFFERENT COMMUNITY LEADERS. FIND PARTNERS FOR COST SHARING.USE EXISTING NETWORKS AS POINT OF ENTRY. CREATE FOR THEM A FORUM FOR DIALOGUE AND ALLOW A COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKER (CHW) TO SHARE WITH THEM. GET THE FEED BACK.

What kind of help would you need to make your idea real?

EXPERT ADVICE.FEEDBACK FROM THE OPENIDEO COMMUNITY, ANY TYPE OF PARTNER.

Is this an idea that you or your organization would like to take forward?

  • Yes. I am ready and interested in testing this idea and making it real in my community.

Mothers who are in the young mothers groups(Y.I.K.E) are well informed than those that are not exposed to any kind of training.we must forge ahead
to empower young mothers to embrace the principles of safe motherhood practices.
