Education and Life Foundation, a registered NGO in Lahore, Pakistan, has requested help with the funding of a Nursing Program to teach one hundred women over a 18-month period the clinical skills of Midwifery. We cannot stress enough how important it is that economically impoverished women in this region receive quality maternal health care by well-trained female providers! This is an urgent request. The cost of this program is around $18,000. We are currently seeking funding partners to assist us for this very large collaboration project and are able to send a very detailed project description including line item costs. Kindly contact Alexa at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help with funding or put us in touch with someone who can.
The Community Midwifery (CMW) education program is an eighteen months midwifery course that has been designed for training rural females as midwives who can provide maternal and newborn care to women and children of their communities. Rural females meeting the CMW eligibility criteria enter into this program through formal selection process.
The Community Midwife certified by the PNC is expected to perform duties in the community she has been selected from as per her Scope of Work. This Scope of Practice has been drawn from an agreed set
of skills and competencies developed for community midwives in Pakistan that has been adapted from International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) competencies 2010.
