It is time to prepare for our next mission to Niger in October. Dr. Becky Jones and midwife Pat Manzon will recertify our existing traditional birth attendants at Tamesna and expand the program to Iferouane–a remote community known as the gateway to the dunes. We have worked with them for 20 years, helping with artisanal, gardening and animal husbandry co-ops. This will be our first training of traditional birth attendants outside of Tamesna.
I can hardly wait!
