About MamaYe

E4A has launched locally-driven advocacy campaigns – known as MamaYe – in Ghana, Malawi, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Tanzania.

These campaigns will engage the African public to take action to help save the lives of mothers and babies.

MamaYe is about making life-saving changes for Africa’s mothers and babies.

It is a campaign to change fatalism to hope; apathy to action; maternal survival from side-issue to political priority; and best guesses into hard facts.

We know change is possible because every day, African men and women like you take action that makes a change, and saves lives.

The taxi driver that takes a woman to the clinic in the middle of the night; the local government officials that keep supplies flowing; the students that donate blood; the journalists that keep this issue alive; the politicians that prioritise maternal health; the community groups that keep track of pledges by politicians; and the young women training to be midwives, who will devote their lives to caring for mothers and babies.

MamaYe celebrates the many individuals and organisations across Africa who work tirelessly to make pregnancy and childbirth safer, so that others can be encouraged and inspired to do the same. You, too, can be a MamaYe hero or heroine.

MamaYe empowers you with information and evidence to question, analyse, compare, understand, challenge and act for positive change.

From understanding complex evidence, to finding the nearest blood bank; from the latest clinical guidelines, to tracking budgets or drug stock-outs, MamaYe puts information in the hands of those with the will to make change.

Riding Africa’s telecommunications revolution, MamaYe connects you to others with the same ambition.

MamaYe is a campaign for all of us, by all of us, to ensure Africa’s mothers and babies survive pregnancy and childbirth. Together we are MamaYe!
