A crash course in changing the world.
There is a current competition running on Changemakers if anyone is interested in entering or voting on the entries - twinky linky: http://www.changemakers.com/en-us/maternalhealth
Quick overview (copied from the site) : Strong mothers enable children, families, communities and economies to grow and thrive. And we have the power to end preventable maternal death and disability in our lifetime. Ashoka and the Maternal Health Task Force are partnering to transform the maternal health field.
One early entry was concerned with getting nurse/midwife led birthing centres in Nepal.
Mothers raise the next generation - Changemakers are concerned with action and getting ideas out there, working, networking etc...if they even get close to transforming maternal health, they are hero/ines in my book.
