A civil society activist working for Partners in Rural Development (PARD-SL) in Kailahun district has said Facility Improvement Team Assessment Scorecard (FIT) “is an eye-opener” to be used by civil society to advocate for improved maternal and new born health care in the country.
Influenced by MamaYe Super Activists, Hasana realised that being a midwife, she actually could do something to improve the health of pregnant women and newborns. Her action is quite simple, but good enough to help many pregnant women.
Read the story behind how MamaYe Nigeria combined radio with other advocacy efforts to secure the commitment of Bauchi State government to allocate 15% of the State's total budget to health, making the State currently the only one with such budgetary allocation to health.
She is driven by her passion for gender equality and her fascination with what it takes to build advocacy campaigns that have real impact.
As Advocacy Coordinator Lilly pulls the work of the Ai team together, assists with copywriting, design and editing. She works closely with the team on all current campaigns especially on the work with MamaYe.
Lilly brings enthusiasm and openness to all of her advocacy work with the MamaYe teams.
Having taught in Ghana and Namibia and spent time in Mauritius, Kenya and Tanzania Lilly has a special interest in the power of youth and technology as a tool for positive growth in Africa.
