Every single day, Nigeria loses about 2,300 under-five year olds and 145 women of child bearing age. Most of these deaths are preventable.

While some of the reasons why women die during childbirth includes lack of access to quality health facilities, in many neighbourhoods in Nigeria women are still dying during childbirth despite the fact that they have health facilities around them. Also many new and young mothers are unaware of how to properly look after their babies and their children. So many times mothers loose their babies and young children due to many issues that could have prevented if they had had the right type of information.

At Mamalette we recruit & train experienced mothers in various neighbourhoods to act as health champions, the women we train educate women around them on how to look after their pregnancy, why they should go for antenatal care, what to eat during pregnancy, using family planning, feeding their children, taking their children for immunisation etc.

We are using information to empower women in various communities.

We would like your help and would love for you to donate so we can train more women and share more information in neighbourhoods around Nigeria. We are not only empowering women with information but we are creating employment opportunities for Nigerian mothers as well. 

What's The Money For?

While we started our program leveraging on meagre resources and have done this pretty economically, we need your support to recruit and train more women and open more motherhood cell groups in more urban-poor communities.

We need to raise funds to train 100 women on maternal and infant health as well as purchase training tools and resources and learning materials that are used in our cell group activities.

We have complete faith that it is achievable if we all work towards it together as a community.

Our Credibility   

Mamalette has run an online community for Nigerian mothers reaching over a million parents since 2013. We have also held events in various cities in Nigeria in the past 3 years. Mamalette was a finalist in the Etisalat Pan African Prize For Innovation in 2014 and won the Social Innovation of The Year Award in 2016 by the Lagos Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

Mamalette was selected in October 2017 as one of 15 enterprises from across Nigeria to be on Facebook's Nigeria SME Council, the very first Facebook SME Council in Africa.

Mamalette also has as it's investor, The Co Creation Hub, an internationally renowned social innovation centre dedicated to accelerating the application of social capital and technology for economic prosperity.

Our relationship with the Co-Creation Hub means that we have an advantage most other organisations don’t, we have access to successful mentors as well as free office space, training facilities and operations support meaning there won’t be any rent, one of the biggest chunks of overhead for any organisation. This means that 100% of your generous donations will go directly towards our program and empowering women with health information.

In addition, we will also benefit from the expertise of an advisory committee whose collective expertise and experience will help ensure that Mamalette is a success. The committee includes experts in the fields of health, social entrepreneurship, technology, business, marketing, and employment.  

We value integrity very highly here at Mamalette and will always work to be as transparent as possible. We understand that we are a young organisation and team, but with a lot of guidance, support and passion we know that Mamalette's missions are entirely achievable.
