Our holistic approach | Learn. Light. Lead.

GreenLamp supports community-to-community projects to address avoidable harm in maternity by:

  • Funding the training of midwives from poor rural areas to increase the number of skilled birth attendants in underserved areas.

  • Providing sustainable, reliable light and power in rural health centers to support safe deliveries in rural areas of Ethiopia.

  • Encouraging positive behavioral change by creating conditions whereby mothers want to give birth at the nearest health center. Our projects are also designed to have a positive impact on women’s empowerment and community development by promoting midwives as role models.

    We work hand-in-hand with communities and local authorities to ensure the sustainability of our projects and take an approach of promoting the human rights of women and girls, inspired by the African proverb: «...if you educate a woman, you educate a community». Our vision is to strive for a bright future for women and girls.
