GreenLamp works for achieving a significant behavioral change in rural population in Ethiopia by encouraging mothers to give birth at the nearest health center where they have access to the professional support of a certified midwife and light at night. The work and commitment of the midwives and the availability of solar light will improve the delivery conditions substantially. In addition, the midwifes conduct ante-natal and post-natal care, family planning and other outreach work. This will make them role models for women and girls in their communities and enable them to promote female initiative and community development.
