empowers Maasai mothers and their communities to become a part of the solution for immunization uptake and improved maternal/baby health in their communities. Their goal is to support and promote child immunization to ensure the full physical, emotional, and intellectual development of mothers and babies in Moita Kiloriti, Tanzania. The team designed and launched an Immunization Champion Program, working with young Maasai mothers especially adherent to immunization schedules, to teach other mothers in the community about the importance of vaccines and maternal health.
The team is already seeing the impact of training of Champions who were involved. This impact will continue to have a ripple effect in communities as others are mobilized, including grandmothers, mothers, fathers, traditional community leaders, teachers, and health workers.Help scale Mama Chanjo's work to other communities by partnering with the team.
