The project

IAMANEH (International Association for Maternal and Neonatal Health) was founded in 1978 by the Swiss Gynecologist Hubert de Watteville and is a ZEWO certified charity. It focuses on the physical, social and psychological well-being of women and children in Mali, Senegal, Togo, Burkina Faso, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania. The "Token of Gratitude" community fundraiser supports a 3-year project (2016-2019) in Burkina Faso, which IAMANEH have implemented in collaboration with their local partner AMMIE (Association pour l'Appui Moral, Matériel et Intellectuel de l'Enfant). Their focus is to provide young women with information and access to reliable means of family planning. Teenage pregnancies are often the start of a vicious circle, leading to family rejection, early school leaving, and eventually to prostitution and other dependencies. In cooperation with AMMIE, IAMANEH provides schooling for “peer-educators”, enabling more than 100 young women and men to engage with their local communities about issues related to family planning. They also run health centers, helping young women to access information, support and contraceptive means. Additionally, IAMANEH supports young women with children in building up their own source of income, such as a sewing or barber shop, helping them to achieve financial independence.
