Explain your project in details:

"Every 10 minutes one woman dies in Nigeria as a result of Child birth (UNICEF). Nigeria has one of the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in the world.The uptake of routine immunization / vaccination remains poor due to several factors including lack of awareness on its importance and misconceptions. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 33 percent of all neonatal deaths are attributed to infectionsprincipally neonatal tetanus and sepsis. One of the main factors contributing to the high incidence of neonatal and maternal tetanus and sepsis is that the majority of deliveries take place under unhygienic circumstances. Furthermore, malaria remains a foremost killer infection in Nigeria. According to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), 11 per cent of maternal deaths in Nigeria are a result of malaria. Due to poverty, lack of well-equipped medical facilities and pregnancy health information many women in rural communities continue to die from causes which could have otherwise been prevented, if they had access to these basic items and information. This unique four- fold service provides preventive solutions to the leading causes of maternal mortality in Nigeria. It comprises: 1.Pregnancy health training- Provides pregnancy health information and sensitization in rural communities to promote health and increase antenatal/postnatal attendance, uptake of immunization/vaccination and delivery at health facility. Women of childbearing age are reached through women leaders in the community. 2.Blood Pressure checks: Women receive free blood pressure checks to ascertain their blood pressure levels and raise awareness on dangers of high blood pressure in pregnancy and the need for regular antenatal visits to keep track. 3.Provision of treated bed nets: To help prevent malaria which is caused by mosquito bites. 4. Distribution of Clean delivery Kits:The delivery kits contain high quality essential items like delivery mats, sterile gloves, antiseptic liquid, cotton wool, scalpel blade,pads and more.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

This projects promotes the health and well being of individuals and tackles the problem of maternal and infant mortality. It also promotes inclusiveness by ensuring that women in rural areas are not left behind in accessing essential items and services during pregnancy and delivery. We have provided our services to less privileged women in Abia State Nigeria. Beneficiaries were provided with relevant information in their local language that can help them make more informed decisions about their health in pregnancy. They received blood pressure checks, treated bed nets and delivery kits. Our monitoring records show that 70% of beneficiaries have now enrolled for antenatal care. There is compliance on kit usage and behavior changes have been observed among beneficiaries, who now sleep under treated bed nets, avoid unhygienic birth practices and receive vaccinations. Women leaders are invited to be part of the training sessions, to encourage community- led change. The women leaders are mandated to continue sensitizing other women in the community on lessons learnt, to ensure that even more women are impacted by this project.

Sustainability and future plans

Nnadozie Foundation is a non-profit organization so most of our funding will come from donations, membership subscriptions and grants. We will also give beneficiaries opportunity to make voluntary contributions to the project. As the project grows, we will seek strategic partnerships with State Governments and International development Organization to improve and sustain our work. In the long term the delivery kits will be sold to members of the public and profits made will be used to continue to fund the project. We will forge partnerships with health providers to make the delivery kits available in health centres across Nigeria at affordable rates.

REMBER:

We all know that as entrepreneurs we need to wear many hats. We often accountable for a wide range of responsibilities from marketing and business development to accounting and inventory control. As a business grows and begins to see some cash flow , however I encourage entrepreneurs to get help with the tasks that they either can't do well or that don't utilize their core strengths. At that point , having well-developed leadership skills is critical to success.

Hello friend, I am your 28th voter. I am so happy that you have chosen to serve the core of the society. I agree with you that many people, more so women are incapable of accessing quality medical services throughout their lives. Addressing this issue is like saving the womenfolk from maternal issues that we know of like miscarriages, infant mortality among others. Keep it up... I am in full support

Did you know that most women are unaware of what they should do during and after pregnancy and many have died due to this? Find out more about what MotherCare App thinks about this and our solution on the link below; Feel free to comment what you think or what your suggestions are

Hi Judith,

Having gone through your project again I can't but commend your efforts. Indeed mothers mortality deaths are high on the increase not only in Nigeria but also among the developing and underdeveloped countries of the world. Improving the health and well-being of pregnant mothers through education and safe preventive measures in rural areas is a very beautiful thing. Thank you for taking action in this field.

With this, I invite you whenever you can and online to visit my project page and leave me your constructive feedback. Your thought is important to me.

This project meets the need of those who really need them. I have heard of many pregnant women who got infected and even died during pregnancy and dekivery because of unclean birth practices and ignorance. Kudos to you. I hope this practical project succeeds

Greetings,

Did you know that agriculture accounts for around 70% of global water use and 30% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A growing world population, increasing urbanization and deteriorating natural resources means we have to do more with less, while reducing our carbon footprint. This means sustainable agricultural practices also play a major role in SDG 13 (climate action). To know more about this issues and about the solutions, please visit my idea https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/22/14397

Also, remain assured that I have voted for your idea but am not writing the number to save time and hence I will be able to vote for more friends. Thank you!!
