Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Maternal health is at the core of Africa NextDoor's mission and efforts to prevent maternal deaths require political and financial commitment. They also require a broad range of likeminded people, organizations and the media need to be involved in the required long-term and targeted efforts.

Let's team up together to provide activities ranging from:
Facilities offering women and children health services especially pregnant women and those in labor whether in villages, towns or any local communities.
Skilled care for mothers and newborns before, during and after childbirth, including emergency obstetric care in the impoverish areas and great distances with our Remote Mobile Clinics.
Offering young people with the opportunity to make informed choices regarding better lives, marriage and pregnancy.
Cutting disability-adjusted life years lost to pregnancy- related illness and premature death by 66 percent.

Today about 85 percent of maternity deaths and 50 percent of child mortality occur in sub-Saharan Africa. These are not mere statistics but people with faces, one's family, a daughter, sister, an auntie or a mother that once had a heartbeat just like us.
Nevertheless, 75 percent of maternal and newborn death can be prevented through simple essential solutions. This is how we are approaching it:

We are building Community Health Centers to provide underprivileged women and children with free health services.
We adequately equip the health centers with the necessary logistics, equipment, medications and skilled staff.
Providing scheduled medical care weekly via our Remote Mobile Vehicle Clinics throughout villages, towns, orphanages, disabled women etc.
Working within the communities and its leaders to create effective awareness.
Partnering with medical institutions and professionals to conduct periodic training.
We leverage technology such as Telemedicine to address the severe shortage of medical professionals for our medical volunteers to Televolunteer.

Our leadership and field experience ranging from hospital, biotech and diagnostics including medical school teaching background.

To measure our progress sturdily

Cast and set achievable but challenging organizational goals
Measure progress against our organizational goals quarterly and or periodically
in some instances
Ensure that program objectives are aligned with our organizational goals

We have acquired a parcel of land roughly about 13,000 square foot in Ghana to build our first community clinic. Now we need to fundraise about $1million to build and equip the facility.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
