Forever Projects give hope, dignity and empowerment to Tanzanian women.
According to the World Health Organisation, 20 women die in childbirth each day in Tanzania. Many others are too sick to breastfeed their babies but can’t afford to buy formula milk, which is equivalent to one week's wage in Tanzania. Forever Projects works closely with these families, who are at risk of being unable to care for their children, by providing formula milk and housing support as well as education in hygiene, caregiving and tailored business training.
Funds raised: $34,250
20 women die in childbirth every day in Tanzania, with many others being too sick to produce breast milk for their babies. In response to this Forever Projects supports these families dealing with malnutrition, with formula milk and works with these family’s to establish small businesses so that they can support themselves. At TFN Live Sydney, Mark was pitching for funding to run this program across 3 locations in Tanzania.
